All Tooth Stains Are Not Created Equal

Alexandria Teeth Bleaching Will any of our locally advertised Mt. Vernon teeth whitening options remove the stains from your teeth?

The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in Mt. Vernon depends partly on the types of stains.

Extrinsic tooth stains are the easiest to remove. These surface stains have not yet penetrated through the enamel into the dentin. Extrinsic stains are caused by dark-colored foods and beverages like blueberries, carrots, coffee, red wine, and cola. And nicotine is no better for your smile than it is for your lungs.

Unfortunately, even if you avoid these common teeth stainers, your teeth will become discolored over time. Like gray hair, wrinkles, and memory lapses, a dull smile is an inevitable part of aging for Mt. Vernon retirees.

Intrinsic tooth stains develop from the inside out. Tooth injury and tetracycline are the usual culprits. Intrinsic stains are more difficult to remove completely, but it is possible to lighten them with professional tooth whitening available at your Mt. Vernon area cosmetic dental office.

If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry at 703-996-4666. We have treated many Mt. Vernon clients with extreme tooth discoloration.

It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.

Mt. Vernon seniors can take years off their appearance by restoring the youthful white smile they once enjoyed. Area teens and young adults with surface stains can prevent them from becoming intrinsic stains with tooth whitening.
