Some causes of tooth discoloration can be prevented, but some are completely out of your control. There are different 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. This is the type of discoloration can usually be lifted with professional whitening. Intrinsic stains can occur as a result of medications, so this is something to discuss with your doctor.
Dr. Guthrie offers two different types of teeth whitening so you can brighten your smile in whichever way you choose:
