Extrinsic tooth stains refer to the staining of tooth’s enamel. These are usually caused by consuming foods and beverages that contain pigments such as coffee, wine, or tea. Though many stains can be permanent, extrinsic stains can be removed with professional whitening treatments or a simple cleaning by our doctors at Southern Cross Dental.
Brushing after every meal can help prevent extrinsic stains, but because enamel comes in contact with all foods and beverages you may need a little assistance from whitening toothpaste. If this isn’t enough, a professional cleaning will work well to remove stains from the tooth’s surface. At Southern Cross Dental, we provide whitening treatments as a service to patients who need to enhance their smile. If you are self-conscious because of tooth discoloration, call us to discuss your treatment options.
