Teeth can become discolored by stains on the surface or by changes inside the tooth. There are three main types of tooth discoloration:
• Extrinsic — This occurs when the outer layer of the tooth (the enamel) is stained. Coffee, wine, cola or other drinks or foods can stain teeth. Smoking also causes extrinsic stains.
• Intrinsic — This is when the inner structure of the tooth (the dentin) darkens or gets a yellow tint. You can get this type of discoloration if:
• Age-related — This is a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic factors. Dentin naturally yellows over time. Foods and smoking also can stain teeth as people get older.
HOW IS STAINED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
There are no special diagnostic tests for Stained Teeth. The dentist may perform a complete dental examination to confirm Stained Teeth. The doctor may determine the type of teeth discoloration during dental examination.
HOW IS STAINED TEETH TREATED?
Many extrinsic stains caused by food and drink can be removed by regular professional cleanings and home care. Good home care includes brushing, flossing and rinsing after meals. Discoloration often can be removed by applying a bleaching agent to the tooth enamel. One technique is called ""power bleaching.""
