Why have my teeth become discoloured?
As our hair turns grey our teeth turn yellow. The reason for this is due to our dentine (which is the soft layer inside our tooth) that becomes darker as we age. Besides aging, tooth discoloration may occur due to many factors which includes:
- Taking tetracycline antibiotics before age 10,
- Traumatizing a tooth,
- Too much fluoride during childhood,
- Congenital disorders such as amelognesis imperfecta,
- Having darker fillings in your mouth,
- Having the unfortunate genes which make your teeth yellow, and
- Getting dental decay
Some reasons why teeth can become stained on the outside include:
- Smoking or chewing tobacco,
- Drinking a lot of tea coffee or red wine,
- Using a mouthwash with chlorhexidine,
- Occasionally swimming in pools, and
- Having food with a lot of turmeric
