The effectiveness of teeth bleaching in San Mateo 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 San Francisco men and women.
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 Pacifica cosmetic dental office.
If your teeth are stained, whether from coffee, tetracycline, or excessive fluoride, call Kenneth Hovden DDS at 650-755-6000. We have treated many Half Moon Bay patients with extreme tooth discoloration.
It is never too late or too early to brighten your smile.
