Extrinsic stains occur on the surface of the teeth and are typically caused by foods, drinks, and tobacco products. This is the type of discoloration that can usually be lifted with teeth whitening. Intrinsic stains can occur as a result of medical conditions and medications, so this is something you’ll need to discuss with your doctor.
If you want to lift discoloration in the comfort of your own home, a take-home teeth whitening kit is a great option. We will start by examining your smile for any existing oral health issues.

After just a couple of weeks of wearing these trays for a set amount of time each day, you will see beautiful results.
