Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains

Casper Teeth Bleaching

If your smile could use some brightening (and whose couldn’t?), what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening from Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper can improve the appearance of any smile.

It is important to realize that not every smile responds the same to teeth whitening. The degree of whiteness attained and the treatment time necessary depends on the type of stains being treated.

  1. Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth, and the easiest to remove. They are caused by coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the natural aging process.
  2. Intrinsic stains can be lightened but may take a bit longer. These stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They may result from trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or excessive fluoride use in childhood before the enamel is fully formed.
  3. Combination: Some people have extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we age our teeth change, regardless of how well we take care of them. Two things that work against us is that our enamel thins while the dentin underneath fades and yellows.

At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper, teeth whitening has improved many of our patients’ smiles. It’s among the cosmetic dentistry procedures we use every day. Call now to schedule an  appointment!
