Why Did the Color of My Teeth Change?
A number of factors can contribute to the diminishing brightness of your smile. These include:
Your diet: Food and beverages, including coffee, tea and red wine play a significant role. The colored pigment present in your diet bonds with the outer layer of your teeth to reduce the whiteness.
Tobacco: Consumption of tobacco exposes your teeth to two staining agents - tar and nicotine. While tar produces a dark stain, nicotine results in a yellowish shade upon combining with oxygen.
Medication: Antihistamines, antipsychotics, antibiotics and blood pressure medication are known to impact the whiteness of your smile. Chemotherapy also leads to the darkening of the outer layer of teeth.
Ageing: As you grow older, the outer layer of your teeth grows thinner, exposing the yellowish dentin. This gives your smile a yellow tint.
Injury: When your teeth suffer some kind of impact or injury, the number of dentins increase, causing your smile to appear yellow.
