At Pearl Dental Clinic our dental hygienist provides a range of hygiene and stain removal treatments to address tooth discolouration.
While staining on the teeth is very common, it can make people feel uncomfortable and nervous in social situations. Some people naturally have a slight yellow or grey tinge to their teeth, but we are able to provide solutions that enable patients to smile with confidence again.
With our dental hygiene treatments, we promise that you will have a healthier, brighter smile in just one visit.
Extrinsic discolouration, which is staining found on the surface of the teeth, can be brought on as a result of poor oral hygiene and a buildup of plaque. In addition to this, regular consumption of substances such as tea, coffee, red wine, curry, fried food, and fizzy drinks can have a similar effect. Therefore, creating a yellow or brown build-up on the surface. At Pearl Dental Clinic we use the latest AirFlow Advanced Stain Removal System that uses air and sodium bicarbonate combined with a water jet. This system removes plaque and tartar fast and painlessly. Air Polish can help to reduce teeth stains including normally hard to remove coffee and tobacco stains.
Intrinsic stains are found within the structure of the tooth. They can be caused by fluoride from toothpaste and present as both brown stains and white flecks. Some antibiotics can cause certain individuals to experience a change in the appearance of their teeth. Some mouthwashes containing contain Chlorhexidine which can cause tooth discolouration. Older individuals could develop brown staining as a result of a thinner layer of protective enamel. Both smoking and tooth decay can cause extrinsic and intrinsic staining on the teeth. The use of tetracycline antibiotic among children can also cause tooth discolouration.
While extrinsic staining of the teeth can be relatively simple to remove, intrinsic discolouration can be more difficult and may need professional teeth whitening.
