Teeth whitening is an excellent option for removing teeth stains and can leave behind a whiter and brighter smile as a result. However, when these stains can’t seem to be removed by at-home treatments, then that’s when you go to a professional. At Countryside Smiles, we offer teeth whitening services for our patients to remove stains, discoloration, and signs of yellowing teeth so you can have the confidence boost you need to maintain a happier smile. Under the care of Dr. Jaspreet Gill, our team can provide you with affordable treatment options to remove stains and give you a whiter, brighter smile in return.
Many over-the-counter options can work to minimally reduce signs of stains and aging through a hydrogen peroxide solution. This solution removes stains by embedding itself into the grooves of the enamel and destroying leftover debris and bacteria left behind from food particles. This solution aims to reach areas that normal brushing and flossing cannot, and the solution binds with the molecular compounds found in the enamel to brighten it up.
But for some people, these are only temporary solutions. That’s because removing tooth stains means understanding where these stains come from. The source of your tooth discoloration depends on many factors, including the deepness of the stain and its primary cause. To help determine this, our dentists classify these stains into three categories:
• Extrinsic Stains: Extrinsic stains only form on the surface or exterior of the tooth, mainly the enamel. These types of stains are considered the easiest to whiten and often result from foods such as tea, wine, and coffee.
• Intrinsic Stains: Intrinsic stains, or internal stains, can develop over time and embed themselves deep within the enamel and reach the dentin layer. Because at-home whitening systems cannot treat dentin, professional whitening services are often able to remove these stains easily.
• Age-Related Stains: Age-related stains often result from a different source, mainly caused by aging. When the teeth age, they can yellow and stain easier due to the process of the enamel, dentin, and inner tooth dying, and can also be caused by a lack of vitamin D and calcium.
Professional teeth whitening services often contain a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide than at-home systems, and our team can help pay attention to any signs of enamel erosion and other dental problems that may occur with the use of teeth whitening systems.
When it comes to stains, teeth whitening is a safe cosmetic treatment that can help you achieve a better-looking smile.
