Over time and with continuous wear and tear, our teeth start to wear down and discolor. Just as other parts of our body break down over time, our teeth are no different. However, with proper care and effort we can slow this aging process and even return teeth to their younger days. A time without discoloration or staining.
Most of us remember a time when our teeth were a beautiful bright white and our smiles were radiant. As we age and increase the wear on our teeth, enamel breaks down, stain particles take over, and just like that we have lost our pretty white teeth.
Extrinsic Teeth Stains are staining that occurs on the surface of the tooth. This can occur when stain particles from food or drink builds up in the film of protein that covers the enamel. Extrinsic stains many times will improve with home remedies likes teeth whitening toothpaste. However, when more is needed to deliver the desired long-term results, Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed through your dental provider will deliver the beautiful white smile that most patients desire.
Intrinsic Teeth Stains are stains below the surface. This happens when stain-causing particles accumulate within the tooth enamel. These stains are harder to remove and generally require bleaching and consultations with your dental provider. The Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is a great option for intrinsic stains to transform your smile with this highly effective tooth whitening service.
Age Related Stains are a combination over time of extrinsic and intrinsic discoloration. Over time the protective enamel becomes thinner, allowing for stains due to less protection.
Trauma or an injury that affects the tooth enamel can also cause stains or discoloration.
Medical diseases and/or medical treatments have been shown to stain or discolor teeth. Chemotherapy, radiation, high blood pressure medicines, and others are examples of treatments that cause staining.
Many foods and drinks can contribute to causing teeth stains or discoloration. There are some other factors too and some that are out of our control.
Food/Drinks: Coffee, tea, colored sodas, red wine, and some fruits and vegetables have been proven to cause teeth staining.
Dental Hygiene: Poor dental hygiene can also contribute to stained teeth. Discoloration can start without proper flossing and brushing.
Smoking: All types of smoking contribute to discolored teeth and staining. Whether it is a cigarette, pipe, vaping or even chewing tobacco, they all play a role in staining teeth.
