Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains

Jefferson City Teeth Bleaching

One of the most common requests we get at Jefferson City Dental Care in Jefferson City is for teeth whitening, one of our cosmetic dentistry services.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. Our teeth tend to grow dull or get stained as the years go by: it’s just an unfortunate fact of life.

There are three types of stains on teeth:

  • Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth. They’re the easiest to remove, and are caused by things like coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the aging process.
  • Intrinsic stains form beneath a tooth’s enamel. They can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. They may be the result of trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or other factors.
  • Combination staining consist of both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.

We have two options for you: in-office bleaching and at-home whitening. Our in-office whitening leaves you with a brilliant, dazzling smile. The at-home whitening trays also delivers fantastic results, but let you proceed at your own pace. Both of them surpass any over-the-counter whitening products.

At Jefferson City Dental Care in Jefferson City, we’ve improved countless smiles with teeth whitening. Patients from Wardsville, Russellville, and Linn also come to our office for general dentistry and dental implants. Contact us today!
