Types of Tooth Stains
There are generally two kinds of tooth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.
Extrinsic stains develop on the tooth’s surface. They are usually the result of general erosion of the enamel as well as harmful oral habits like smoking or excessive consumption of darkly pigmented foods and beverages. While they can sometimes be removed with whitening toothpastes, some cases require the help of professional whitening.
Intrinsic stains are more severe and occur below the surface of the tooth. They are often the result of trauma, overuse of certain medications, too much fluoride consumption during childhood, or the natural aging process. Although these stains are harder to remove, they can be broken up and cleared away with our professional treatment.
With our in-office whitening, you can expect to see results in about an hour. First, your dentist in Richmond applies a powerful bleaching gel to your teeth and activate it with a curing light. The ingredients in the gel break up the staining molecules on your teeth so that when we wipe away the gel, off come the stains as well. By the time the hour is up, your smile should be several shades brighter!
To achieve more gradual results in the comfort of your own home, we also offer take-home whitening kits. Using impressions we take of your teeth, we craft custom-made trays that fit your unique smile. Simply wear these trays, along with our ultra-potent bleaching gel, for about half an hour a day. Most patients begin to see a difference after just a day or two, but you should achieve optimal results after two weeks of daily use.
