Consumption of dark-colored liquids such as wine, cola and coffee and smoking can cause extrinsic discoloration.

The teeth are cleaned to clear plaque. A protective gel is applied over soft gum tissues. The whitening agent used during the course may be hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These whitening agents enter the porous enamel layer and undergo oxidation when they react with stain. The stain is cleared during the process. A special light may help in accelerating the reaction.
