The importance of having a good smile cannot be emphasized enough. Your smile can create an instant positive or negative impression. As such, having healthy, clean teeth sends a strong message to everyone with whom you interact.
What are the causes of discoloration?
As we age, our teeth go from white to progressively more discolored. The main causes of darkened teeth are genetics, antibiotics, and certain foods, plus teeth tend to darken as we age. Changes in the enamel of the tooth or dentin of the tooth can cause internal tooth discoloration. High levels of fluoride, tetracycline, antibiotics, tooth decay, root canal and teeth problems can be the cause of internal tooth discoloration. External tooth discoloration on the other hand is a result of consumption of foods and tobacco products.
