How Can I Remove Those Dark Or Brown Sports On My Teeth?

How Can I Remove Those Dark Or Brown Sports On My Teeth?Although dark spots do not necessarily indicate a cavity, it is crucial that you see a dentist. You have no actual way of knowing what these spots are and what is causing them. When you visit a dentist, the spots are examined. The dentist looks at the teeth and asks about your lifestyle and habits. The dentist wants to know if you smoke and the kind of foods you frequently consume such as red wine, soy sauce, dark fruits, and tomato-based sauces. This information helps narrow down the cause of the stains. The treatment options for the stains depend on the nature, cause, and severity of the stains. The stains can be intrinsic or extrinsic, meaning the treatment methods may vary.

Removing Tooth Stains

Discolorations on teeth can be resolved with teeth whitening treatment. A dentist performs a whitening procedure to create white shades from the discolored teeth. Teeth whitening works for stains that have not become severe. For badly stained teeth, whitening may not work. As such you may need to consider porcelain veneers. Dentists use porcelain veneers to cover stains on front teeth. These veneers are put over the front teeth to cover the stubborn teeth stains, allowing you have whiter-looking teeth.

Again, a dentist may use composite resin bonding to mask stubborn stains on teeth. If you have discoloration or stains that cannot be eliminated with a teeth whitening procedure, a dental specialist can recommend bonding. Composites have transformed to become stronger and stronger over the years. As such, they can be used for both front and back teeth. When used to cover stains, composite resin bonding is achieved by applying a putty-like resin containing matching pigments to the natural teeth.

Treatment for intrinsic stains largely depends on the cause. A dentist may use dental crowns or fillings to cover the stains. Root canal therapy may help if infection to the pulp has led to staining of the tooth. After the therapy, a dentist may cover the tooth with a crown restoration.
