Discoloured or stained teeth can be the result of stains that are either extrinsic or intrinsic.
Intrinsic stains occur from within the tooth structure. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the tooth. So, can you get discolored teeth treatment or enamel teeth treatment? Yes, you can!
Stained teeth can be the result of stains that are either extrinsic or intrinsic.
Intrinsic stains occur from within the tooth structure itself and are not removable by cleaning. These stains can typically be removed if you seek professional discolored teeth treatment services from a dentist.
Extrinsic stains occur on the tooth’s surface and can be reduced by improving oral hygiene and limiting contact with staining agents, which can be found in substances such as tobacco, red wine and coffee. If you are looking for a single tooth discoloration treatment, a dentist may use an ultrasonic scaling device to remove hard to remove stains from your affected tooth.
Changes to colour, including gray teeth, black teeth, brown teeth, and even green teeth.
Extrinsic stains are generally dark discolourations on the enamel (the outer layer) of the tooth. Intrinsic stains are present when the inner structure of the tooth darkens or gets a yellow tint.
There are many reasons why stains may appear on the teeth. There are environmental factors (such as fluorosis, a condition that can be caused by excessive consumption of the fluorine compounds often found in tap water), medical factors, such as being exposed to antibiotic therapy during tooth development, which can result in tetracycline staining, and genetic factors, which influence the growth and colour of teeth.
Many people consider stains unsightly, as they are often associated with poor oral health and hygiene. As a result, discoloured teeth treatment such as teeth whitening treatment, which can reduce the appearance of extrinsic stains, continue to grow globally in popularity. Intrinsic discolouration, however, can be more difficult to manage. These stains usually can’t be removed, but they can be covered or concealed with composite bonding material or veneers.
