The probable reasons for intrinsic stains can be tooth decay or oral health issues. It is comparatively difficult to cure only using a teeth whitening treatment. It instead might need RCT or dental fillings along with the primary treatment.
- Extrinsic: Extrinsic stains are stains on the outside of your teeth, also known as enamel. It is a semi-translucent layer of highly-resilient mineral crystals that shields your teeth from damage. Since extrinsic dental stains result from external substances, the causes of these kinds of dental stains tend to be from tea, coffee, cigarettes, tobacco, Wine, cold drinks, etc. It is easy to treat with teeth whitening treatment in Kolkata and guarantees visible results.
