Hello! Today’s dental article is for San Diego people with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. Marcos Ortega DDS cosmetic dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.
Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate San Diego dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many San Diego patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.
In addition to teeth whitening, we provide a full menu of cosmetic dental procedures at our San Diego office. With porcelain veneers, you can correct the shape of your teeth in addition to brightening the color. If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant may be the solution. Call 619-717-8459 for a dental implant or smile design consultation.
If you are embarrassed by a less-than-sparkling smile, let the team of dental professionals at Marcos Ortega DDS help you lighten up.
