Whitening For Three Types Of Tooth Stains

Cary Teeth Bleaching

Greetings, Raleigh, NC area residents! If your smile could use some brightening, what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are the easiest ways for you to dramatically improve your appearance. If your teeth have been stained or yellowed over the years from a variety of things such as coffee, cigarettes, or eating certain foods, professional tooth bleaching can revitalize your look and give you a stunning, white smile.

That’s why our team at Cary Family Dental in Cary offers the safest and most advanced procedures that whiten teeth more efficiently than any over-the-counter products you may have tried in the past.

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

1. Surface or extrinsic stains are the most accessible and easiest to remove. They are caused by the usual suspects: coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the natural aging process.

2. Intrinsic stains can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. These stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They can be caused by trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or excessive fluoride use in childhood before the enamel is fully formed.

3. Combination: Some Cary dental patients have both 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. Again, the extrinsic stains on the enamel are the quickest to lighten, but ongoing treatment with a peroxide-based penetrating whitener can lighten the deeper discoloration.

It is best to look to an experienced dentist, such as Allan Acton of Cary Family Dental in Cary, to address your teeth whitening needs. Our experienced team of dental professionals  have been brightening smiles since 2003. We also offer KoR whitening, sedation dentistry, dentures, dental crowns and emergency dental care. It is time to upgrade your face value by brightening your smile! Call us today for an appointment.
