There are a number of reasons why your teeth become dull over time. This staining occurs on a daily basis, and even with proper dental care, your teeth may still lack the luster you desire. One of the leading causes of dental discoloration is simply wear. As the enamel of your teeth weakens, it also becomes more porous. As such, the enamel is more susceptible to staining agents in the things you consume like coffee, wine, colored drinks or food. The staining on the teeth can range from white streaks to yellowing tints or brown spots. Also, if the enamel has become worn it will show through, causing the teeth to take on a more yellowish hue.
Other Causes of Staining
More severe staining, or intrinsic staining, can be caused by serious dental decay, trauma to a tooth, fluorosis, infections or even genetics. In some cases the innermost structure of the tooth becomes darker, yellow, or exposed through weakened enamel. Simple teeth whitening cannot treat these types of stains.
