Your teeth become discolored by stains on the surface or by changes inside the tooth. There are three main types of tooth discoloration:
Extrinsic stains are discoloration to the outer layer of the tooth (the enamel). Coffee, wine, cola, and other drinks or foods do this. Smoking also causes extrinsic stains.
Intrinsic stains are darkening within the inner structure of the tooth (the dentin). A variety of factors cause this type of discoloration:
Age-related stains that combine of extrinsic and intrinsic factors. Dentin yellows over time and tooth enamel becomes thinner with age. Foods and smoking stains build up over time, and tooth injuries cause discoloration.
The remarkable results of your teeth-whitening treatment will not last forever.
Your glossy new glow fades in one month if you regularly expose your teeth to foods and drinks that stain. Coffee, tea, and red wine are the main culprits. But what if you enjoy these beverages? If that is the case, we recommend you use a straw when you drink them. It allows the liquid to bypass your front teeth and avoid stains.
