Stained Teeth is a condition in which the teeth are either extrinsically or intrinsically stained or discolored. The discoloration may vary from yellow to brown to black. Stained Teeth may occur due to stains on the surface or changes inside the tooth. Stained Teeth can be intrinsic, extrinsic or age-related. Symptoms are: stains on enamel, yellow tints, pits on teeth and brown spots
HOW IS STAINED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
Symptoms include stains on the enamel. They can range from white streaks to yellow tints or brown spots and pits. If the enamel has worn away, and dentin is showing through, you may notice a yellow tint. No special tests are needed. A dentist or other dental professional can diagnose tooth discoloration by looking at the teeth.
HOW IS STAINED TEETH TREATED?
Mild Stained Teeth can be treated through a bleaching gel. Root planing and scaling are some of the tooth cleaning techniques used for clearing extrinsic Stained Teeth. In severe cases a crown may be placed to cover Stained Teeth
