Why do I have yellow, stained teeth despite brushing and flossing every day? I brush twice a day and floss every night, but I still have yellow teeth from the bottom up. What causes this? .

Why do I have yellow, stained teeth despite brushing and flossing every day? I brush twice a day and floss every night, but I still have yellow teeth from the bottom up. What causes this? .

Typically: Typically staining of teeth is limited to the outer enamel which lends itself to"whitening" procedures which are variations of bleaching. Superficial stains may also be removed with a dental prophylaxis (cleaning by your hygienist).

Beneath the outer layer of enamel of a tooth is a supporting material that is called dentin. Dentin is yellow in color. As we age, or with aggressive brushing, the outer enamel is worn which leads to exposure of this dentin. This will impart a yellow color to the teeth. This condition is not amenable to whitening procedures, instead some form of coverage, such as veneers are required to correct this yellowing. Be advised that the best veneers can also be stained if your are a heavy smoker, tea / coffee drinker or eat pigmented foods.

You dentist should be able to recommend the best solution for your situation. ...Read more

What in my body causes my clothes to discolor (fade?) and my sterling and gold jewelry to tarnish?

Sweat?: Body sweat/perspiration can discolor clothing. Pure gold (24k) is extremely soft so to make gold sturdy enough to use in jewelry, other metals are mixed with it, creating an alloy. Gold is an inert element so it doesn't tarnish, but the silver and copper in the alloy may react to the oxygen, sulfur and moisture in the air and eventually turn the gold jewelry dark. ...Read more
