Aging and one’s lifestyle habits lead to tooth discolorations- they become darker and dull. Habits such as smoking, drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine lead to staining.
Enamel gives a tooth its white color. The enamel is the strongest substance in our body, but is worn away over the years. Because of this, microfractures occur; enamel wears away even more becoming thinner, which causes the color the inner layer of the tooth (dentine) to become more prominent.
As a result, variuos microparticles we daily ingest are embed into the microfractures, which further cause tooth discolorations or appear as stains on teeth.
Dental whitening can restore part of the whiteness of your teeth, and there are various methods how to whiten them. Unprofessional whitening methods that are not clinically proven should definitely be avoided because they can lead to unwanted results or adverse effects.
