Types of Enamel Stains
Dental stains can be classified as intrinsic and extrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains are inside the tooth, whereas extrinsic stains are on the surface of the enamel. Although teeth whitening gels cannot penetrate deep inside the enamel to remove intrinsic stains, they can effectively remove surface stains caused due to medication, diet and beverage choices, bad oral hygiene, chewing tobacco, etc. Cosmetic teeth whitening procedures aim at minimizing and reducing surface stains.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive, chair-side cosmetic dental procedure that is more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. Patients can expect much whiter and brighter teeth following this procedure that is painless and safe. Whiter and glowing teeth have the potential to change the appearance of your smile and make you look younger and more attractive.
