The teeth can lose their white color for a variety of reasons. Teeth can become externally stained by food, dark beverages, or tobacco products. A dentist also treats teeth that have become internally discolored due to cavities or after a dental procedure. Some medications may also cause the teeth to appear yellow or darkened. Finally, teeth can lose their white sheen for genetic reasons or as a natural side effect of aging. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry now provides many safe and effective teeth whitening solutions.
