When you get older, do your teeth naturally yellow?
some one told me that as you age, you lose something in the teeth (maybe calcium or something) that keeps the teeth white, and that is why old people have yellow teeth. What's up with the old yellow teeth?
You need to eat a lot of yoghurt, stop smoking, stop drinking coffee, stop drinking tea and for gods sake... brush your teeth.
Getting older does not mean you have to stop to brush your teeth.
Yes they do but you can also help with that by not drinking as much soda, tea, coffee etc. Brushing at least 2 times a day and using a whitening agent such as crest whitneing helps as long as your teeth aren't too sensitive.
I guess, but if you use whitening toothpaste and brush your teeth at least twice a day for 3 minutes every time, you should be able to keep them white.
I don't recommend using whitestrips though because I heard those have an ingrediant that can cause cancer.
Yes as you get older your teeth will naturally darken. It can be made worse if you drink alot of dark drinks, coffee, grape juice, red wines, blueberries etc. Also smoking and not taking proper care of your teeth, brushing and flossing everyday will speed the process along. You can whiten teeth with over the counter products or have your dental office suggest some whitening procedures. If you have any tooth colored fillings or crowns esp. in the front then you can't whiten these. All you will do is whiten your natural tooth structure, and then the fillings and crowns will be the same color, sometimes making it more noticeable. If you plan to whiten talk to your dentist or hygienist they can give you the best information based on your teeth and dental needs.
yes, and they fall out, tough tit.
Yes, teeth naturally become more yellow as we age. It's the dentin in the tooth (the layer of tooth structure under enamel) that is yellowing. It's nothing that a whitening system couldn't fix.
i dunno if that is true i guess it could be from the wear but ask ur dentist. he will help u out with that prob.
have a nice day
thats because of the lack of brushing their teeth not because of age.
Well your teeth can get yellow if you drink coffee a lot. I would reccommend using Crest Whitestrips. They are guranteend to keep your teeth whiter for 12 months. I have used white strips and they do work and i do not belive they cause cancer.
during age, dentine (tooth structure under the enamel) not getting more yellow. it is still in the same color (light yellow). Enamel actually not totally white, but its also translucent. During age and wearing process, enamel will get thinner, and because its translucency, teeth will looks like more yellow.
