Tooth discoloration

Teeth staining can be caused by several factors. Some of them affect enamel formation, while others can cause staining. Teeth staining can be uniform or may appear as spots or lines on the enamel. Colored areas and may have a different density or porosity than that of a standard enamel
According to Dr. Moses Gabriela, specialist in general dentistry, may be endogenous and exogenous causes.
1. Can be caused by endogenous causes during enamel formation:
* Tetracycline administration at an early age or during pregnancy;
* Ingestion of large quantities of flour during childhood;
* Avitaminoza A and B;
* Genetic cause ( imperfect osteogenesis, congenital porphyria ).
2. Of exogenous causes are: croatofage bacteria in the mouth, drinking coffee, tea, cigarettes, wine, etc..
Spots may occur due to old age, while dentin is yellowing. Enamel thins, allowing the dentin to show. Food and cigarettes can stain your teeth more easily in people with age.
Signs and symptoms include spots that appear on the enamel. Spots may have different colors, ranging “from the white chalk, yellow-brown, brown, gray, gray-black, depending on the cause of their production.”
When to go to the doctor ? Teeth discolorations are more a matter of appearance. Visit your dentist if you are unhappy with the way they show teeth. Warning! Any change in color of your child’s teeth should be evaluated by a dentist.
How is it diagnosed ? No need for a special test, that “diagnosis is made on examination and personal history recounted by the patient. Duration – Some spots, such as coffee, may be removed by certain professional procedures and others are permanent.
Treatment varies depending on the intensity of coloration and aims to improve the appearance of teeth.
Depending on the intensity of staining, the method of treatment is established. When the stains are not very high intensity, they can be removed by blanching or whitening combined with hydroabrasive after a professional cleaning. The more stain intensity increases, the more complicated treatment. You can use ceramic or composite veneers or full ceramic.
