Intrinsic Stain

Canine Instrinsic Stain

Intrinsic staining or discolouration within the tooth is commonly caused by

1. Haemorrhage following trauma with loss of dentinal odontoblasts and movement of erythrocytes into the empty tubules,

2. Discolouration by medications or drugs such as tetracyclines incorporated into the tooth when it is formed,

3. Other medications that bind to the dentine.
