Stained or discoloured teeth refer to teeth that appear to have a yellow or grey tone, as well as pigmentations on the enamel surface.
Teeth become stained or discoloured generally because of the following:
Luckily, there are a number of treatment choices for stained teeth. Good dental hygiene routine, including twice-daily toothbrushing and daily flossing, will keep your teeth safe and look fantastic. Limiting your consumption of teeth-staining food and beverages can help slow down the stain build up. Regular dental whitening treatments will help keep them looking whiter and brighter.
For teeth that discolour due to ageing, treatments may be more complex. To restore your aging teeth to its previous state of glam, full-mouth rehabilitation is often required.
Over time, teeth will continue to discolour and become more yellow. This may potentially affect your confidence and how you socialise.
