Why do my teeth look yellow?
The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. The colour of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the colour of the dentin under it. Over the years, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are:
- Using tobacco
- Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
- Not taking good care of your teeth
This staining cannot be cleaned away by brushing alone. Teeth whitening is the most effective to remove on surface (extrinsic) stains.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a procedure in which specially formulated gel when applied on your teeth releases free oxygen radicals which help in removing stains and discoloration tinge and lightening your teeth. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
