Most tooth staining is extrinsic, meaning it occurs above the enamel of the teeth. Extrinsic stains, typically caused by foods and beverages, can make the teeth look dingy and yellowed, but can easily be removed through topical teeth whiteners like those offered at our Depew cosmetic dentistry office. We provide both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options, enabling our patients to achieve optimal results in the manner most comfortable for their needs.
Intrinsic staining occurs underneath the enamel. Often ribboned or mottled in appearance, these stains can be caused by certain antibiotics, excessive fluoride in water, and the process of aging. Topical teeth whiteners like Opalescence may not lighten intrinsic stains. They may, instead, enhance the visibility of these deep tooth stains by lightening surrounding enamel.
For deeper stains that may not respond well to tooth bleaching, more advanced cosmetic dentistry services are necessary. Those offered at Forestream Dental include:
Both of these cosmetic services are capable of covering deep stains and producing a bright, white, and attractive look to teeth impacted by discoloration. The best way to learn which one is right for your needs is by calling 716-656-8686 and scheduling a consultation with Dr. Evola.
