Learn about Teeth Whitening
The natural color of teeth is within a range of light greyish-yellow shades (Canadian Dental Association). Teeth discolor can be intrinsic and extrinsic. Extrinsic is on the outside of the teeth and Intrinsic discoloration is from within the tooth. Intrinsic discoloration can be caused because of medication use, childhood illness, infection, tooth trauma, or aging. Clients with intrinsic discoloration should see a professional dentist. Teeth naturally darken with age. Tobacco products, food and drink all affect the shades of teeth (Canadian Dental Association ). Coffee, tea, red wine, foods with dyes, and tobacco can contribute to this type of staining. These stains are extrinsic. Lastly, skin tone affects the perception of the color of teeth.
