TOOTH DISCOLORATION

By: Smileway Dental

COMMON CAUSES OF TOOTH DISCOLORATION

  • Tobacco use

Tobacco not only increases your chances of gum disease, it can also cause your teeth to turn yellow.

  • Poor dental hygiene

Poor dental hygiene, such as inadequate brushing or flossing, can lead to tooth discoloration

  • The aging process

As you age, your tooth enamel becomes thinner, revealing the dentin underneath that also yellows with age.

  • Certain food and beverage

Coffee, tea, sodas drink, red wine, and even a few fruits and vegetables are proven causes of discolored teeth

  • Certain illness and medication

Sometimes medical treatments can contribute to teeth stain, and several classes of medications including high blood pressure medications, chemotherapy, antihistamines and some antipsychotic medications can cause teeth stains & turn to yellow.

  • Trauma

Any trauma, illness, or disease that affects enamel development in children, either in the womb or while teeth are developing (under the age of 8) can cause discolored teeth. Trauma to adult teeth can also cause discolored teeth.

If you notice a change in the colour of your teeth and it doesn’t get better with a whitening product, it’s a good idea to follow up with your dentist.

Some tooth discoloration is irreversible. In that case, your dentist can cover up the discoloration with veneers, crowns, and composite fillings.

I recently had an appointment at Smileway Dental Clinic to address a persistent dental issue that had been causing me considerable discomfort. From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere of the clinic was warm and welcoming, which helped to alleviate some of my anxiety. Dr. Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure to me, which helped to alleviate my fears. Her calming demeanour and gentle approach immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was surprisingly painless, thanks to Dr. Lisa's expertise and skillful technique. She was incredibly patient and attentive throughout the entire procedure, constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. Overall, my experience at Smileway Dental Clinic was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Lisa and her team exceeded my expectations in every way, providing me with top-notch dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. I highly recommend Smileway Dental Clinic to anyone in need of dental services, especially those who may be anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist.
