Stained teeth can result from external factors like diet or smoking, internal factors like root canal treatment, or age-related changes.
Picture it as a colourful canvas – external stains from coffee, tea, or smoking paint a superficial layer, while internal staining often follows root canal treatment. Age-related enamel thinning unveils the underlying yellow dentin.
Whitening treatments act as the artistic touch-up, brightening both internal and external stains. For a more permanent makeover, Cosmetic Dental veneers offer a cosmetic solution.
Allowing stains to linger is like letting graffiti stay on your smile. External stains may increase the risk of tooth decay, while internal stains affect the overall appearance.
The enamel on your teeth is the hardest substance in the human body, but it's also porous. This means that over time, colourful compounds from food and beverages can seep in, contributing to stains. It's like your enamel's own secret art gallery, but with some unwanted guests!
