Top 3 Causes of Yellowing Teeth

It’s natural to take things for granted…until they are not. This is usually what happens with our health and most usually, with our teeth color. We don’t notice it get more yellow and yellow until one day, a comment or a flash in the mirror as you prepare for an important event, and it dawns on you. The former is embarrassing.

So how does teeth become yellow? And what can we do about it? Is The Smile Bar Manila the right solution for your problems?

Here are the top 3 causes of yellow teeth:

1. Poor Dental Hygiene

Enamel is your teeth’s armor. Poor dental hygiene wears down your enamel and the second layer, which is dentin, gets exposed. Dentin is yellowish in color. Thus, erosion of enamel caused by either diet and other factors contributes to the yellowing of teeth.

2. Smoking

Aside from it’s cancer causing effects, smoking and tobacco use is right up there with the leading causes of  yellow teeth. Tobacco leaves a strong brown stain that dives deep into the enamel. It is quite impossible to treat tobacco stains by brushing alone, the longer you have smoked, the deeper the stain gets.

3. Food and Beverages

Of course, tea and coffee are some of the most prevalent suspects in yellowing teeth. But remember, wine and alcohol also contribute, and sugary drinks are even worse because sugar is a bacteria haven.

Surprisingly, some fruits and vegetables like berries and beets can cause staining because of their strong dark colors. Make sure to brush or rinse your teeth well after consuming these items.
