Tooth Discoloration Explained
There are 2 main types of teeth discoloration:
Extrinsic — this happens when the outer layer of the tooth or the enamel is stained. This type can be influenced by everyday life choices and specifically such things as coffee, tea, wine, and smoking.
Intrinsic — this is when the inside structure of the tooth or the dentin darkens or gets a yellow tint. This type of discoloration can stem from several reasons, some of which may include genetics, having a heavy load of antibiotics as a child and trauma to the tooth.
The color of your teeth will not affect the vital parts of a tooth. However white teeth equal whiter smiles and while you are not feeling any pain, your confidence may be suffering. This is the most ordinary cause for people using teeth whitening.
