Tooth discolouration occurs from stains on the surface of your tooth or by changes inside the tooth. Tooth discolouration varies from yellow tints, brown spots or streaks.
External Stains also referred to as extrinsic stains occur on the enamel of your tooth and are caused by foods, drinks and habits such as red wine, soft drinks, tea, coffee and smoking.
Internal stains however occur in the internal structure of your tooth. These stains can occur from too much fluoride, antibiotics or trauma.
There is no need to stress about tooth discolouration, it will occur overtime as you age. Along with our teeth whitening services, there are a number of preventative measures you can take such as brushing your teeth after every meal, rinsing your mouth after drinking coffee or red wine, keeping up to date with your 6 monthly dental cleans and avoiding overuse of fluoride in children to prevent discolouration.
