When It Comes To Your Teeth, White Is Right!

March 29, 2024

Americans are known around the world for their healthy and attractive teeth. Our standards are higher than those in other countries, and many of us work hard to keep our teeth white and bright. At-home whitening products can help eliminate stains, but it’s best to put the job in the professional hands of a prosthodontist. He (or she) has a variety of whitening methods on hand that best suit your preferences and needs. 

When you’re looking for excellent care from a superb prosthodontist, count on the office of Carolina Prosthodontics & Implant Dentistry. In our eyes, each patient is unique in his/her wants, needs and preferences. During your initial consultation, you’ll be given plenty of time to talk with us about your situation. We’ll then evaluate your case, discuss any areas of concern you may have and devise a plan to meet your expectations. Our services include a selection of cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile. We can transform less-than-perfect teeth into the smile of your dreams. 

These types of discolorations are notorious for tarnishing teeth. 

Extrinsic stains tinge enamel, which covers each tooth. It protects the dentin, which is softer than enamel and lies right under it. Enamel is the toughest part of a tooth and comes into contact with everything you put in your mouth. And considering all the color-potent things we consume—such as berries, nicotine, red wine, coffee and tomato-based sauces—it’s no surprise that the enamel absorbs some of it. Here’s the good news: Extrinsics don’t move out of the enamel, so they’re easy to remove. 

Intrinsic stains, on the other hand, slip through the enamel and into the dentin. Dentin, which is inherently dimmer and has more of a yellow tint than enamel, becomes exposed due to thinning enamel or life’s typical wear and tear. Intrinsics are a bit harder to eradicate. 

Age stains are the mark of the passage of time. No one is exempt from the march of time. Enamel gets thinner and dentin turns darker. Even the most ardent oral care routines don’t stop these changes. 

At the office of Carolina Prosthodontics & Implant Dentistry, our friendly, highly trained team will help you and your family feel comfortable and relaxed while providing the very best in prosthodontic care.
