Tooth whitening is the process of lightening the color of teeth. Teeth may become stained or discolored for a variety of reasons. Whitening can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth enamel.
Extrinsic discoloration is when foods, beverages, or smoking habits stain your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, foods with dyes, and tobacco can contribute to this type of staining. These stains affect the outside of your teeth.
Intrinsic discoloration is from within the tooth. You may have intrinsic discoloration because of medication use, childhood illness, infection, tooth trauma, or aging.
At Birmingham Dental, we offer different teeth whitening options that will bring back the natural radiance of the teeth. Professional teeth whitening services are an incredibly effective way to lighten your teeth and eliminate stains. There are plenty of options over the counter, but professional treatment offers longer lasting and more dependable results.
