What Are the Types of Tooth Stains?

Extrinsic Stains - Yellow or brown stains that appear on the surface of your teeth are called extrinsic stains. Whitening toothpaste and over-the-counter products typically provide some improvement in stains but can cause tooth or gum sensitivity or fail to remove deeper extrinsic stains.

Intrinsic Stains - Stains that occur inside the teeth, typically with a gray or blue color, are called intrinsic stains.
