  • 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.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
