Your teeth may become discolored for any number of reasons, including:
- Tetracycline staining
- Smoking or other tobacco usage
- Dietary habits
- Fluorosis (excessive consumption of fluoride)
- Tooth decay
- Dental trauma
- Poor dental hygiene
- Antibiotics, infection or illness
Enamel microabrasion is one solution to remove discoloration and improve the appearance of your teeth. This is a simple procedure that removes discoloration and stains on the surface of your tooth. When you receive enamel microabrasion, our dentist will gently clean the stained area with a mild acid. This reduces or removes the discoloration, allowing our dentist to prepare the tooth and restore its original color and shape. Finally, the tooth is polished to complete your treatment and should be indistinguishable from your other teeth.
Please be aware the deeper stains and discolorations within the structure of the tooth may require more extensive cosmetic treatment to remove.
