Teeth stain for many different reasons, certain food and drinks easily stain teeth. Poor brushing and some medicines can also stain teeth. Teeth stains can occur on the outer surface of the tooth or even below the outer tooth enamel. Some people develop both types of teeth stains. 

Types of Tooth Stains

Extrinsic Teeth Stains: This is staining on the surface of the tooth. Often from food or drink. Extrinsic tooth stains are typically caused by tobacco, tea coffee, strongly coloured food and drinks. This type of staining responds well to regular dental cleaning and brushing the teeth with whitening toothpaste.

Intrinsic Teeth Stains: This is staining below the surface of the tooth. An intrinsic tooth stain is harder to remove, but it can be done. An intrinsic tooth stain may require professional whitening. At Plaza Health we can provide a professional home whitening kit or Zoom laser whitening.

Age-Related Teeth Stains: The core tissue of your teeth, the dentin, naturally yellows over time, so teeth discolor with age. As we age, the enamel that covers the tooth becomes thinner, allowing the dentin to show through. Our Cosmetic dentist can talk to you about the cosmetic improvements that can be made to your smile.

I choose Dr Perry for my treatment because lingual braces were available here.
I found my initial consultation very satisfactory. Dr Perry came across as very friendly and competent. The quality of treatment I received was very good and the staff were lovely and very friendly. So far the results have been excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend them to a friend.


My experience of Dr Perry was great as everyone is here for your best interest. I had my three wisdom teeth removed and my tongue untied. The first week or so my tongue was a little uncomfortable but after that, it was fine.
My speech has gotten better ever since. I would highly recommend my friends and family to visit Dr Perry


I chose Dr Perry and his team for my treatment based on the excellent reviews found on-line.
The initial consultation was comprehensive and all the information needed was provided. Throughout my treatment all the clinic staff were very professional.
I am delighted with the end result, in just six months (in my case) I now have a “Hollywood” smile. : )


I chose Dr Perry for my treatment because my mam decided to take me here, as she had heard great reviews and recommendations about Dr Perry. I found the initial consultation to be pleasant as everyone seemed to know what they were doing. The quality of the treatment I received was very high and well organised. My overall experience was very pleasant. I am ecstatic over my end result and I would recommend Dr Perry.


A friend of a friend recommended Dr Perry and his team. I was dreading it at first but glad I made it. I found the treatment was of a high standard and quality without sounding bias! It was a very comfortable experience, I felt very welcome at all times and all the staff were lovely.
It was a fantastic end result and I’m thoroughly delighted about it so yeah I would recommend it to anyone I know!
