How to remove brown spots on teeth will depend on the cause. In general, there are several ways you can try to regain a healthy tooth colour, such as:
1. TOOTH FILLING
If brown teeth are caused by cavities, then the most appropriate way to remove them is with dental fillings. The sooner you fill the cavities, the better. If the tooth decay is already severe, the filling process will be more complicated.
In some cases, brown teeth that have been severely damaged cannot be filled and must be treated using more complex procedures such as root canal treatment followed by the installation of a crown.
In the most severe cases, the tooth will need to be extracted as it cannot be preserved with any treatment.
2. TOOTH SCALING
Dental scaling is a way of removing brown spots on the teeth caused by tartar. In the scaling process, the dentist will also usually remove stains caused by smoking.
3. TEETH BLEACHING
Teeth bleaching is the process of whitening teeth using certain materials. Usually, bleaching is chosen to brighten yellow teeth, but in some cases, this treatment can also remove brown stains on teeth caused by food and drinks.
The brown colour caused by food and drink has absorbed into the surface of the teeth making it more difficult to remove by other methods.
4. DENTAL VENEERS
For brown teeth caused by taking medications such as tetracycline, bleaching is usually not enough to restore the healthy colour of the teeth. This makes dental veneers an option because in the veneer process, the dentist will cover the tooth surface using a special material so that the colour can be adjusted to the colour of healthy teeth.
