If you are among the many individuals who are unhappy with the color of their teeth, we can provide you with stain/spot removal in Moorpark, California. Teeth stains can have many causes, so the treatments for each should be accommodated to target the specific stain your tooth has. We have recognized the following kinds of tooth stains and with the information below, you can begin to identify the reasoning behind your coloration:
- Intrinsic Stain: Dentine, the tissue beneath the enamel of your tooth, is a darker and more yellow color. When your enamel begins to wear away or deteriorate, exposing the dentin of your tooth, an intrinsic stain can be the result. This can be caused by facial or dental injury, damage to a tooth’s nerves, or an excess use of tetracycline antibiotics during childhood.
- External Stain: A stain on the enamel, or outer layer, of your tooth can result from the absorption of pigments in foods and beverages over time. This is because your enamel comes into contact with everything you eat or drink.
- Age-Related Stains: As you age, your enamel can thin and your dentin can darken. These changes combine into age-related stains and can make reversing this a more challenging procedure.
