All of us are required to have a good set of teeth in performing various everyday functions. They are helpful in enhancing the standards to our personality. Almost none of us would like to have discoloration in our teeth that look bad to us as well as other people. The reasons behind tooth discoloration can be many, but there are some teeth-whitening options available by which a person can whiten the teeth.

The discoloration in teeth may take place due to numerous reasons. The first thing is intrinsic discoloration that can happen because of aging, infection, medication use, childhood illness or tooth trauma. Intrinsic discoloration may require bleaching professionally for obtaining the same level or better of teeth whiteness. The next thing is extrinsic discoloration that is when various foods, beverages or smoking habits stain the teeth of a person. Staining can be due to the intake of foods with dyes, coffee, tea, and tobacco. This kind of discoloration can be treated with the help of whitening tooth pastes that target the outside stains of the teeth.

Teeth bleaching can be understood as whitening teeth beyond their original color. There can be different kinds of color shades a person can achieve in the case of discoloration. It has been said that tooth-whitening can work best in patient having yellow teeth and proves to be less-effective when people have a display of brown teeth. If there is a presence of color grey or purple, tooth bleaching might not work at all for you.
