A condition where the tooth loses its natural color or tone is called tooth discoloration. If you ever feel embarrassed and self-conscious about the color of your teeth, don’t worry, you are not alone.
Of the total population, 64% of people are unhappy with their teeth and the main culprit is Tooth Discoloration. The discoloration is a common symptom of a dying tooth that no longer receives a fresh supply of blood.
A discolored or dying tooth appears either yellow, light brown, grey or even black. As the discoloration increases over a period of time, the tooth starts decaying and eventually leads to the death of the nerve attached to it.
Factors like smoking, bad eating habits and stains from coffee, alcohol, etc., are the main causes of developing discoloration.
