Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that effectively removes specific types of stains and discolouration, giving you a brighter and more appealing smile. Understanding the kinds of stains that teeth whitening can address can help you decide if this procedure is right for you. Let’s delve into the common stains that teeth whitening can eliminate.

5 Typical Stains that Teeth Whitening Can Treat

  1. Stains that can be eliminated with teeth whitening - Excellence In DentistrySurface Stains

Surface stains, also known as extrinsic stains, result from external factors and usually affect the outer enamel layer of the tooth. These stains often stem from consuming pigmented foods and drinks like coffee, tea, or red wine, or habits like smoking. Teeth whitening treatments effectively tackle surface stains as the whitening agents penetrate the enamel, breaking down pigmented molecules and lightening the stains.

  1. Age-Related Stains

As we age, our teeth undergo natural changes in colour and texture. Over time, the enamel thins, revealing the yellowish dentin layer underneath. This can lead to teeth appearing lacklustre or discoloured. Teeth whitening addresses age-related stains by lightening the overall tooth shade, restoring a more youthful and vibrant look.

  1. Mild to Moderate Discolouration

Teeth whitening is effective for mild to moderate tooth discolouration caused by various factors, such as genetics, certain medications, or dental conditions. These treatments significantly diminish discolouration, restoring a whiter and more uniform tooth colour.

  1. Stains from Specific Foods and Drinks

Certain foods and beverages can cause stains that penetrate the enamel and affect the underlying dentin. Examples include berries, tomato-based sauces, soy sauce, and dark condiments. Teeth whitening helps fade these stains, brightening the teeth and reducing their visibility.

  1. Stains from Certain Medications

Some medications, like tetracycline or specific antihistamines, can lead to tooth discolouration when taken during tooth development or for extended periods. Known as intrinsic stains, these are situated deep within the tooth structure. While treating them can be more challenging, professional teeth whitening may still reduce their visibility to some extent.

Have been coming to this practice for years, despite it being a good long drive. Initially I had concerns when Andre handed the reigns over, but these concerns proved unfounded as the team continued to be just as kind, caring and attentive as always. Any dental work is always carried out thoroughly and diligently and I always leave feeling like nothing has been missed or rushed. In addition, the practice uses ‘the wand’ for anaesthesia, a barely noticeable and ultra fine needle that administers slowly and without much discomfort. As someone who has a fear of needles this has helped hugely. I often struggle with tooth sensitivity so the hygienist visit is always something I dread, but Agota’s reassuring and patient attitude makes things go much more smoothly. Honestly can’t recommend them highly enough.

Highly recommend. I’ve been coming here for over 20 years. It’s not local to me but I travel here because it’s worth it. The care here is truly excellent. I was worried when Andre retired but Keelin is every bit as good and so I will continue to come here.

Great dental practice. Brilliant with all the family and expert advice. They are really good at making anxious patients feel calm and explain any treatments fully with you. State of the art equipment, TV screens and music to make you feel relaxed. Both my kids also having orthodontic treatment here. Highly recommend....
