The effectiveness of teeth whitening depends partly on the types of stains. But professional teeth whitening from Mason Dental in Grapevine can whiten the most stubborn of teeth.
There are two basic types of teeth stains:
Extrinsic stains are the least complicated to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.
Unfortunately, even if you prevent these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for some men and women.
Intrinsic stains arise from the inside out. Tooth injury or tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are harder to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional teeth whitening.
