Teeth may become discoloured due to superficial stains (extrinsic stains), commonly caused by smoking, coffee/tea and our diets. Such staining may be removed with dental scaling and polishing by the dentist.
Another common reason for discoloration is internal stains (intrinsic stains), which may be due to trauma to teeth, the use of antibiotics as an infant or over-exposure to fluoride during early childhood.
At Clover Dental, our dentists can recommend options to brighten your teeth. The common procedures include professional teeth whitening or porcelain veneers.
