Teeth are naturally white, but they don’t always stay that way. In fact, most of us will experience dulling, staining and discolouration over the years. Caused by the natural ageing process, health conditions, dietary and lifestyle habits, genetics and even medication, stains can happen to anyone. Given the fact that we’re in the holiday season, that means we’re around more people, taking lots of selfies and those mandatory family pictures (ugly sweaters anyone!)

But What if Your Teeth are Heavily or Severely Stained? – Can Whitening Still Help
To answer this question, it might help to take a quick look at the types of stains teeth can become subject to.
Surface Level Stains: These are typically light and are often the result of a recent meal or that last cup of coffee. Generally, these are easily removed by brushing your teeth.
Deep Embedded Stains: These are commonly caused by regular coffee/tea consumption, smoking, aging, drinking red wine, etc. They form over time and tend to progress and get worse as the years go by. They require professional cleaning and/or teeth bleaching or teeth whitening services performed by a dentist to remove.
However, in more severe cases, medications, lifestyle habits, genetic predisposition, dental trauma, oral health and more can result in heavily stained teeth that even whitening or bleaching can’t effectively remove.
Veneers and Crowns for Severely Stained Teeth
In cases where professional cleaning, teeth whitening and/or teeth bleaching has little effect, veneers or crowns offer a fast, reliable and beautiful solution. These alternatives to teeth whitening can restore the form, spacing and shape of your teeth, all while giving you the bright white smile you desire.
