Although stains and discoloration on the teeth do not usually affect physical health, they can affect the aesthetics and self-esteem of people.
The drawback becomes notorious when the enamel on the outer surface of the tooth or the dentin under the enamel becomes stained, for reasons known as:
Extrinsic discoloration: It occurs when the enamel stains due to the person consuming drinks such as coffee, wine and certain types of soft drinks and some foods or being addicted to tobacco.
Intrinsic discoloration: It occurs when the internal structure of the tooth (dentin) darkens or turns yellowish. It comes from various causes, such as:
Age discoloration: It consists of a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic factors. As the enamel layer on your teeth becomes thinner, it allows food and tobacco to stain the dentin.
Above all, to avoid the appearance of stains and discoloration of the teeth, preventive measures should be adopted such as the proper use of toothbrushes and dental floss and the consumption of foods and beverages that cause stains should be avoided.
