We all crave the perfect smile in central Leeds and it’s there if you want it, but sometimes we don’t notice how over time, our teeth become discoloured and there are a lot of things that can contribute to our teeth becoming a little tarnished.
The first obvious cause can be lifestyle; there are certain foods and drinks that can cause havoc with the colour of our teeth and leave them stained, and it doesn’t help if we smoke either, as nicotine will soon tarnish the enamel of the teeth- couple all of this with poor oral hygiene and the teeth will suffer over time. Certain treatments can also discolour the teeth as well; amalgam fillings can give a grey hue to the teeth and porcelain-over-metal crowns can also do the same as they wear.
However, tooth discolouration can also be caused by diet: the immune system is dependent on getting the right vitamins and nutrients to give the body and teeth strength. Any deficiency in this area and this will show in the colour of the teeth (heavy medication also has the same affect). In most cases, bleaching treatments can remedy the problem in the short term, but it could be how you live your life in the long term.
