Stained & discoloured teeth in Milton Keynes
Your teeth can become discolored by stains on the surface or by changes inside the tooth. There are three main types of tooth discoloration:
- Extrinsic (outer surfaces)
- Intrinsic (inner surfaces)
- Age related (combination of outer and inner surfaces)
Many extrinsic stains caused by food and drink can be removed by regular professional cleanings and home care. Good home care includes brushing, flossing and rinsing after meals. Whitening toothpastes may remove minor stains. They do not actually change the overall colour of your teeth.
Discolouration often can be removed by applying a bleaching agent to the tooth enamel. Please contact us for stain removal treatment and safe teeth whitening to be carried out by a professional.
