Stained Teeth: There is a Cure

by ConfiSmile

Stained teeth are a very common dental problem that makes a lot of people to feel uncomfortable when they have to talk or smile, due to the color of their teeth. However stained teeth depending on their cause have a number of treatments.

Types of Tooth Discoloration:

Extrinsic Tooth Discoloration

  • Colored organic compounds from some foods and drinks – tea, coffee, red wine, blueberries, curry and other – are absorbed on teeth enamel, resulting in yellow teeth.
  • Other foods that contain much chlorophyll may result in green stains.
  • Common dental restorative materials, as the amalgam in silver-colored fillings, may turn adjacent areas of teeth black or gray.
  • Prescribed antiseptic mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine are associated with causing yellow-brown stains on teeth. Repeated use of stannous fluoride can result in light brown or yellowish teeth stains. Iodine-containing solution medications may also cause similar stains.
  • Metallic stains can be caused by metallic salts, such as in iron supplements.
  • Other habits as smoking or chewing tobacco are also responsible for stained teeth, creating brown to black stains on the tooth surface.
  • Accumulation of dental plaque and tartar may alter the natural appearance of the tooth and lead to yellow teeth.
