Factors that Influence Tooth Discoloration

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Factors that Influence Tooth Discoloration Tooth discoloration can make almost anyone today feel self-conscious. The pearly whites we inherit naturally when we are born can lose their natural color over time to look discolored and pale in comparison to their original color tone. Tooth discoloration can also make individuals smile less, as they worry for their teeth. This isn't the solution, especially since the problem can be solved properly.

There are a number of factors that contribute to tooth discoloration, and we study them in detail within this article. Your local prosthodontist can introduce a number of cosmetic dentistry options for you and help develop your understanding of the subject matter.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Even if you take care of your health and eat healthy food, without being addicted to any other harmful substance, you can still suffer from tooth discoloration. Tooth discoloration is often a result of acids released by some healthy foods we consume during the day.

Foods that Cause Tooth Discoloration

A number of edibles can cause tooth discoloration, even if you think the particular edible is healthy for yourself. Foods that cause discoloration include:

•  Fruit juices and berries.
•  Different sauces including the more commonly used tomato sauce, soya sauce and garlic source.
•  Tea and coffee can also cause tooth discoloration due to their pale color and the impact it has.
•  Red wine, cola and some other beverages can also suffer from tooth discoloration in the long run.

In addition to the food items above, you can also experience tooth discoloration if you use tobacco on a daily basis, are exposed to radiation, doxycycline, tetracycline, high levels of fluoride and chemotherapy rays, or maintain poor dental hygiene. These reasons can all pile up to cause severe levels of tooth discoloration.
