Dental Hygiene & Stains Removal
Dental Hygiene in Salisbury & Adelaide
Most extrinsic staining on teeth can be removed during your regular scale and clean hygiene appointments. Some stains are intrinsic. Tooth discolouration can also be caused by infection or previous trauma to the tooth. This will require teeth whitening/bleaching.
What Causes Stains?
There are a number of factors that can cause staining. Poor dental hygiene and overall health problems, such as diabetes, can all affect the appearance of your teeth. Teeth may also change colour as you get older and the enamel naturally thins.
Diet plays an integral part in this. Tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco are all things that can contribute to extrinsic staining.
