What Causes Tooth Stains?

The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away. The effects of aging, caffeine, and tobacco can also wear away your enamel.

Products like coffee and tea, berries, and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances.

One type of stain—caused by traumatic injuries, medications, and fluorosis—begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don’t help. Another type of stain—one that can be more easily attacked by brushing, flossing, and rinsing—is caused by external factors such as foods.

More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Some commercially available “whitening toothpaste” can remove stains and make teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can wear away your tooth’s enamel. Whitening agents change the color of your teeth but are only effective on certain types of stains. For example, bleaching agents have difficulty removing brownish or grayish stains.

These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth. We cannot whiten restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding, and tooth-colored fillings. However, we will recommend porcelain veneers or dental bonding for patients who want to address tooth stains.

We perform safe and effective care in our office with professional whitening. Done correctly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective if they are monitored, and directions followed closely. We have several options, both take-home and in-office procedures.
