Causes of Tooth Discolouration

There are many reasons teeth can become discoloured. Risk factors include but are not limited to:

 – Coffee, tea, pop, and red wine

 – Foods such as berries, apples, potatoes and certain spices

 – Poor dental hygiene

 – Advancing age

 – Smoking

 – Genetic factors

 – Some medications

 – Disease

It is advisable to visit a dentist to better understand the cause of your tooth discolouration and get professional help on how to manage the problem.

Suitability for Teeth Whitening

Before deciding to use a tooth whitening procedure, it is advisable to consult with a dentist and discuss the type and severity of discolouration you are experiencing and your motivations for undergoing the treatment and decide which treatment will work best for your smile.

Not all types of tooth discolouration will respond the same way to whitening procedures. Whitening typically works best on yellow teeth and is less effective on grey, brown or black stains. It is important to have realistic expectations of how much improvement is possible. Human teeth are not perfectly white and vary in colour for each person. Treatment will not completely whiten teeth but will instead lighten the colour.

Whitening may not be appropriate for you, if:

– You have crowns or plastic fillings (whitening can affect the bond between fillings and teeth)

– You have cavities or early cavities

– You have a gum condition such as a gum recession

– You have sensitive teeth or gums

– You are pregnant or breastfeeding

– You are under 18

Consult with your dentist to determine what treatments are available for your individual circumstances.
