A Brighter Outlook for Stained Teeth
Kiss discolored teeth good-bye! Discover the factors behind the darkness and the fixes for a brighter smile.
The True Causes of Tooth Discoloration
Do you feel that stained teeth spoil your smile? Many factors can cause dental darkness, including all of the following:
- Improper oral hygiene habits prevent people from removing the plaque and particles that can badly discolor teeth.
- Darker foods and drinks can leave teeth with severe stains, such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola, and darker fruits and vegetables.
- Age tends to naturally darken teeth since tooth enamel erodes over time, exposing the tooth’s lower layer of darker dentin.
- Heredity affects how likely a person is to experience tooth discoloration.
- Facial trauma can lead to dental damage that darkens a tooth.
- Some medications, antibiotics, and antihistamines have the unfortunate side effect of tooth discoloration.
- Tobacco not only causes discoloration of teeth, but also oral cancer and higher risk of tooth decay.
