As previously stated, the biggest culprits of tooth discolouration are all too familiar. Smoking, alcohol, and diets high in sugar, specifically those high in carbs. If our diets don't revolve solely around veggies, meats, and fats, our teeth can revert to their natural colour.
Teeth discoloration cause. There are many different causes for your teeth to become discoloured from the pearly whites you were born with. These factors include the following.
Foods such as berries, tomato sauces, soy source, coloured lollies, acidic foods and a range of others can stain your teeth when eaten in excess. In saying this, we do not recommend stopping eating these foods completely. Just be aware and consume in moderation, ensuring that your rinse/brush your teeth after meals.
Drinks such as tea, coffee, carbonated soft drinks, sports drinks and wine can also cause staining. Hot beverages can cause hot and cold cycling, which leads the teeth to expand and contract to allow stains to penetrate the teeth. Again, we recommend cutting down on drinking these beverages in excess, using a straw when possible and washing teeth after consumption.
Coffee has been shown to stain teeth. But there is no consensus on whether it causes tooth staining. Some say that the coffee is absorbed into the bloodstream and then deposited on the teeth.
Others say that the stains are the result of oral bacteria feeding off of the coffee. However, no one knows the exact truth of the matter, but we do know that coffee stains do not fade.
Chewing and smoking tobacco have negative effects on your teeth and should be avoided.
Smoking can take a huge toll on your teeth. It causes a lot of tooth enamel to be lost, as well as the overall health of your teeth. Smoking is considered to be the number one cause of tooth discolouration. When you smoke cigarettes there are chemicals that are released into your mouth, which discolour the teeth.
Smoking can cause many health problems. But few are as noticeable as the discolouration of teeth that many smokers will develop. This yellowing of teeth caused by the nicotine in the cigarettes and is not reversible.
If you are a smoker and have yellowing teeth, you should consider seeing a dentist.
It is integral to regularly brush and floss your teeth and to use mouth wash when possible. Especially important when you are at high risk of tooth discolouration due to the factors including in this post.
Sadly, as we get older, the outer layer of enamel on your teeth gets worn away, revealing the natural yellow colour. This is mostly unavoidable but can be treated with our teeth-whitening services and veneers.
There are a number of diseases that affect tooth enamel, thereby causing discolouration. In addition to this, certain treatments and medicines such as chemotherapy and the antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline, also cause teeth darkening.
Some people simply have brighter or thicker teeth than others.
