What are types of tooth discoloration

It is important to understand the type of tooth discoloration affecting your teeth. Determining the discoloration present is essential because each type will need its treatment. Treating tooth discolor with the wrong technique will affect them. Before you pick any treatment, ensure to understand the tooth discoloration you are treating.

Extrinsic discoloration

Extrinsic discoloration comes about when your teeth' exterior has become discolored. This discoloration and stains are superficial. They never penetrate past the protective layer of enamel of the teeth. Extrinsic discoloration and stains respond well to the whitening treatments. You can treat it with home teeth whitening rays or in-office teeth whitening. Both methods can assist you in brightening your teeth by using shades to eliminate stubborn stains.

Intrinsic discoloration

Intrinsic discoloration mostly affects the interior layer of a person's teeth. Intrinsic discoloration becomes visible when the dentin is discolored, or the enamel has worn down. The condition does not respond to the local whitening treatments with bleaching agents. The right method to treat intrinsic discoloration is concealing it. The best method will hide intrinsic discoloration to provide your teeth with a brighter appearance.

Age discoloration

When your teeth age, they become susceptible to discoloration and staining. This type of discoloration is termed a separate kind of discoloration. The reason is that they are a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic discoloration. Tradition whitening is the best treatment you can consider for this situation.
