Who Is a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening?
There are a variety of ways that teeth can become discolored. Here are some of the most common reasons:
- Pigmented foods & beverages
- Tobacco products
- Sugary & acidic foods
- Poor oral hygiene
- Certain medications
Some causes of discoloration can be prevented, but others may be completely out of your control. There are two main types of discoloration: Extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco products. Intrinsic stains are a result of medications, so this is something you should discuss with your doctor.
