As we age, our smile can become discolored and darker in nature due to various lifestyle factors. At Mountain Aire Dentistry, we can help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile in about an hour right here in our office. This quick in-office treatment can help you achieve a smile you’re confident with. Here is what you can expect from the treatment.
We often see teeth change color due to surface stains, change in the makeup of the tooth, or both causes combined together. Crest explains that dental professionals have identified three main categories of tooth discoloration:
An extrinsic tooth stain is a stain on the surface of the tooth. It occurs when stain particles, like residue from food or drink, build up on the film of protein that covers the tooth enamel. These types of stains are typically caused by tobacco use or by drinking coffee, tea, or soda on a regular basis.
An intrinsic tooth stain is staining below the surface of the tooth. This happens when stain-causing particles work through the exterior of the tooth and accumulate within the tooth enamel. Intrinsic stains are commonly caused by excessive fluoride use, especially in children.
As we get older, we can experience tooth discoloration due to both extrinsic and intrinsic stains. The tissue of your teeth, the dentin, naturally turns more yellow over the years. As we get older, the enamel thins and the dentin is more noticeable. Intrinsic causes of discoloration combined with extrinsic causes, like eating and drinking certain foods, will cause most adults to experience tooth discoloration with age.
There are a number of different reasons that teeth can change colors. WebMD explains that those include:
