Whitening For 3 Types Of Tooth Stains

Kelowna Teeth Bleaching

If your smile could use some brightening, what are you waiting for? Professional teeth whitening at Love Your Smile in Kelowna is the easiest way to improve its appearance.

It is important to realize that not every smile responds the same to teeth whitening. The degree of whiteness attained and the treatment time necessary depends on the type of stains being treated.

  • Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth, and the easiest to remove. They are caused by the usual suspects: coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the natural aging process.
  • Intrinsic stains form from the inside out but are visible through the enamel. They can be lightened, but it may take a bit longer.
  • Combination: Some people have both extrinsic and intrinsic staining. As we age, our teeth change – regardless of how well we take care of them. Enamel thins and the dentin underneath fades and yellows.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we have long experience with teeth whitening. Patients from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to our office for restorative dentistry, and much more. Call for an appointment today!
