Teeth Whitening in Barrie, ON
Do you wish your pearly whites were actually, pearly white? Over time, you may notice your teeth getting stained or discoloured. A dull and discoloured smile can negatively impact your self-confidence, making it more difficult for you to engage in conversations or laugh in public.
Teeth staining and discolouration can affect individuals of all ages, from the very young who are yet to sprout permanent teeth to seniors, and everyone in between.
When it happens, the best way to deal with staining or discolouration is to seek help from a dentist. A dentist will diagnose the underlying cause of your discolouration, as well as provide a safe, lasting, and painless solution.
Dr. David A. Staples offers teeth whitening in Barrie, ON to patients who are ready to say goodbye to stained teeth and hello to brighter, more beautiful, and confident smiles.
What Causes Tooth Staining and Discolouration?
Teeth become stained and discoloured differently depending on the factors at play. There are three major types of tooth discolouration. These are extrinsic, intrinsic, and age-related discolouration.
Extrinsic discolouration is whereby the outer surfaces of your teeth become stained, externally, by staining agents such as coffee, wine, or smoking.
Intrinsic discolouration involves changes to the inner structure of your teeth. The dentin (inner layer of the tooth) may have darkened if your tooth experienced trauma, or exposed to some antibiotics as a child.
Age-related discolouration is often a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we grow older, our enamel becomes thinner while your dentin yellows or darkens. These changes often combine to give your teeth a stained look.
Regardless of the type of discolouration you’re experiencing, we can recommend an effective treatment to whiten and brighten your smile.
