Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains In Lithia

Published on November 20, 2015

Hello Lithia! If your smile could use some brightening, what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are the easiest ways FishHawk residents can dramatically improve their appearance.

It is important to realize that not every Tampa smile responds the same to teeth bleaching. The degree of whiteness attained and the treatment time necessary depends on the type of stains being treated.

1. Surface or extrinsic stains are the most accessible and easiest to remove. They are caused by the usual suspects: coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the natural aging process.

2. Intrinsic stains can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. These stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They can be caused by trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or excessive fluoride use in childhood before the enamel is fully formed.

3. Combination: Some Lithia dental patients have both extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we age, our teeth change – regardless of how well we take care of them. Two things that work against us is that our enamel thins while the dentin underneath fades and yellows. Again, the extrinsic stains on the enamel are the quickest to lighten, but ongoing treatment with a peroxide-based penetrating whitener can lighten the deeper discoloration.

It is best to trust fast teeth whitening treatment to the care of an experienced dentist such as Kernagis Dental Excellence of Kernagis Dental Excellence in Lithia. Kernagis Dental Excellence and the experienced team of dental professionals at Kernagis Dental Excellence have been brightening smiles since 2001.
