Tooth Stains – Everything You Need to Know About Them

Tooth Stains!!! So, you could be one among the one facing!!! Tooth discoloration is one of the most common reasons why many middle-aged patients visit the dentist. Most people develop some degree of tooth discoloration at some point during their lives, especially as they get aged.

Teeth staining can be either of the three,

  • Extrinsic Stains
  • Intrinsic Stains
  • Age-Related Stains

Extrinsic Stains:

Extrinsic teeth stains discolor your enamel, the outer layer of each tooth. Your enamel protects the softer part of the tooth that's underneath (dentin).

One good news is that extrinsic stains don't move below the enamel to the tooth's dentin. So, these stains are the easiest to remove with just a home teeth-whitening protocol under a dental advise and recommendation.

Intrinsic Stains:

Intrinsic stains happen when dentin, the sensitive layer underneath the enamel becomes stained.

Intrinsic stains are a little tougher to remove, but not to worry, you can get it done with the help of professionals.

For intrinsic stains active whitening ingredient like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide are needed hence has to be done by a dental professional only.

Age-Related Stains:

  • Either your dentin darkens.
  • Or your enamel thins.

The combination causes teeth discoloration that, unfortunately, is out of your control – no matter how meticulous and diligent you've been with your oral hygiene.

This should again be handled by professionals only.
