What Does Color Say About Your Teeth?

iStock_000000214466MediumHealthy adult teeth naturally contain a mixture of yellow, red, and gray shades. Teeth whitening can work wonders – no matter how your teeth look on the color spectrum. Regular teeth cleanings can help make your teeth whiter.

Yellow

The dentin is revealed when enamel is thinned, usually due to ageing or brushing too hard.

Gray

It’s likely that you have experienced tetracycline damage – probably sometime during your youth.

Blue

Some studies show that too much unsupervised whitening can give teeth a blue hue – boo hoo!

Beige

Could be too much coffee, tea, or red wine, or due to smoking or chewing tobacco.

White

You probably have a great home-care routine, keep regular checkups, and accept professional dental advice about tooth whitening.
