    Teeth Discolouration

    Teeth can become discoloured for a number of reasons, and often the effect is temporary and can be attributed to food or drink, such as coffee, red wine or beetroot. Read more →

    my son has always had slightly discoloured and pitted front teeth. He always goes to the dentist to have his teeth checked. I believe its some sort of hyperplasia (I think). Is there anything he can have done. Would laser treatment or teeth whitening be a solution or woudl I be wasting my money. Can this be done on the NHS

    Hi, I'm Megan and I'm nearly 16 years old. I have stained teeth and are discoloured. I don't smoke, drink and I have a healthy diet as well as brush my teeth twice a day. Though I treat my teeth brilliantly nothing ever seems to help them become whiter or less patchy. As a 15 year old I am very worried this is going to effect my future. Is there anything I can do before it is too late?

    My teeth is discoloured and need whitening. However, I got 4 false teeth, 2 bridges, 1 crown and 1 stick on tooth. I want to whiten my teeth but these false one would still be yellow. What can I do?

    YOu will get a lot out of looking up on google .... wellness momma teeth . She is very knowledgeable about natural ways to defeat gum infections. Some of the dentist's are way over priced and they don't necessarily like to hear someone is doing well with low cost natural items , without their HIGH priced dental procedures. ALso do a search for essential oils dental . Will get a lot of info and very reasonable ways to solve some of your dental problems. Good Luck ...

    I'm 19 years old and my teeth are discoloured, rotten and put a major downer on my confidence. I've been to the dentist to try and get things sorted but all I felt was embarrassment and shame about the state I have let my teeth get in, I've not been back since then and my teeth are only getting worse. I don't want to smile anymore because of what people think, I'm too embarrassed to even smile fully in front of my family and long term boyfriend. I want full dental implants but obviously I can't afford the massive £30,000 pay out. Does anyone have any advice on alternative options or financial aid? Thank you.

    My teeth have become discoloured because I have been on and off (more on than off) antibiotics for more than four months. Will they go back to normal? I don't have much to smile about due to being ill for this long but this is adding insult to injury

    My teeth are in pretty poor shape after my childhood and my reluctance to clean my teeth. I'm living with the consequences now, but thankfully I am brushing my teeth twice a day currently. However, my top 2 teeth have began to rot at the top of the tooth where it meets the gum, and I have had numerous fillings. Is there anything I can do to make the appearance of my teeth better, make the teeth whiter and look more healthy. And also, disguise or fix the rotted area between my top two teeth and my gum.

    The most suitable solution is to have 'composite' restorations placed which are white - this must be done by a dentist and is available on the NHS for anterior teeth. Keep on top of your brushing etc., stop smoking and avoid foods that stain teeth including wine/curry etc.

    the rot at the top of your teeth is because you are not cleaning your teeth properly. i would advise a trip to the dentist to have the rot removed and filling placed, and thena trip to the hygienist for a very strict oral hygiene regime

    Hi I'm stevie and I'm coming 26, for the past 9 years my teeth are yellow and the enamel is off most my teeth, I used to drink a lot of fizzy drinks when I was in my teens. I always have to fillings done because I'm always breaking and chipping my teeth and I also smoke I know that doesn't help my teeth but I have tried to quit a few times in the past. But I have bad anxiety problems that I just can't socialise with people because I don't want people seeing my teeth, I can't remember when the last time I actually smiled. Because of my teeth I get badly depressed and there days that I don't eat beacuse I scared of breaking my teeth. I have no confidence or self esteemm, when I see people in street they have nice perfect teeth. I hate my teeth and I hate myself for what I have done to them. Can anybody help or give me advice?

    I'm 18 and I've lived in discoloured teeth for 5 years now. I have white rectangles on both my front incisor teeth. It's quite annoying, It really affects my confidence. I was bullied in school over it. I would've considered having whitening done to hide discoloured teeth but I costs so much.

    I am 16 and like many my teeth are a bit discoloured, it doesn't bother me too much. I have rotted teeth at the back of my mouth and now both my front teeth are slightly chipped, one noticably more than the other. Also one of my front teeth is noticably more discoloured than the other. I'm terrified of dentists and I ran out last time. Is there anyway I can get my front tooth capped and my teeth whitened and cleaned without having to go through getting my back teeth out?

    I have seriously discoloured teeth. I was assaulted a few years ago and as a result had the nerves removed from y two front teeth, I also had Chemotherapy 4 years ago which has discoloured my other teeth and worsened my front teeth. I can't smile confidently and would like to know a solution. I sufferer disabilities and therefore need the work done on the NHS, my dentist is reluctant to do any work as she says nothing will whiten my teeth. I am very upset with this.

    Hi I'm thirteen years old and I hate my teeth. Next month I should be getting braces from an overbite, but I can only get silver. My teeth are slightly discoloured from an illness when I was younger (not sure what it was) and it's stained my teeth. I've been using teeth whitening and I've been brushing my teeth twice a day for three minutes, and they've got a little better, but not much difference. Does anyone have a way of making them seem cleaner without getting them bleached? Thanks Abbey

    I'm a 14 year old girl and i strongly believe that my teeth are very discoloured. My teeth are a very dark shade of yellow and they are very weak. The front two teeth have yellow stains on the bottom which are very noticable- i get very embarrassed when i talk or when i smile because no one else has teeth like mine. i have had root canal on my front teeth. most of my teeth are still my baby teeth and they are very weak and sensitive- all my teeth are a shade of yellow i dont know why i brush twice a day and i dont eat sugary food or fizzy drinks. i would really like some advise about what to do with my teeth.

    i wud like help with my teeth

    I had a dodgy dentist who removed teeth when it was completely unnecessary and left part of an instrument in my gum! A new dentist found that when i had an x-ray. Unfortunately bad teeth are in my genes, my mother had to have all her teeth out at age 30! I have had my front top teeth capped for the last 28yrs and my top lip disappears when i laugh. I now cover my mouth when i start to laugh. The teeth are now discoloured and my gums are shrinking I am now so embarrased by my teeth and i cannot afford the treatment, as i am a full time student, at 53yrs old, a nursing one at that! Please what can be done?

    Hi, I'm 17 years old and ever since my adult teeth have come through they've came through with a dark yellow coat. Since the age of 7 when my teeth started to fall out they've grown discoloured. I brush my teeth every morning and night and I've tried all different whitening products but nothing seems to work. This makes me very self conscious to talk to people and meet new people as I'm scared they'd be looking at my teeth and judging me. It causes anxiety when talking to people.

    I am 19 and i am training to become a personal trainer and my problem is that i have discoloured teeth and it is nocking my confidence when it comes to working with clients. However, my main issue is that my two front teeth on the top of my mouth are complete opposite, one is white and the other is a brownish colour so my question is what can i do to whiten all my other teeth as i have already tried many whitening toothpastes but none seem to make that much difference.

    I really sympathise the unfortunate truth is all the cheap options don't really work. The only way is to get them professionally done which can cost alot! I have a pretty similar problem and have noticed that the only person who is really bothered by it is me! Chances are no one else is even bothered! I wouldnt let it get you down, as hard as that may be. Hope this has helped a bit.

    I am 23 and have really badly discoloured teeth. it really gets me down and i am a college student and i am not confident in getting a job as i feel i am always judged by my teeth. they say the first thing someone notices about u is ur smile

    yeah you can get a tooth polish in the chemist that you apply to your teeth and keep your mouth open till the polish drys in its not that expensive to buy and make your teeth like 3 shades whiter :) x

    When adult teeth come in they are far more yellow in colour that baby teeth. Some of the yellow colour can be superficial staining & can be removed by your hygienist. However under the enamel lies a layer of dentine, its the dentine that is yellow in colour not the enamel so buying an abraisive whitening toothpaste isn't going to help much. If you visit the hygienist for a scale & polish & still aren't happy with the colour, i would try buying an at home bleaching kit from your dentist that you can top up anytime! :)

    I am 24 and have discoloured teeth from being a smoker and drinking up to 4 cans of coca cola a day. i would like to know how i can make my teeth become white again and prevent any serious teeth problems or prevent my teeth from rotting and falling out or being removed. I am aware that i have to stop smoking and cut down on how many fizzy drinks i have daily. What kind of tooth paste should i be using, i change my tooth paste every so often and i dont know if i should stick to one brand of tooth paste or not? I have consider getting my teeth bleeched by my local dentist, how much could this cost? is there any other things that you can suggest that will help my teeth become healthy again before it is too late. I am very concerned about this and would welcome any suggestions you may have.

    hiya my name is jessica and i have come on this website about my friend, he has rotting and discoloured teeth from drugs in the past and he also drinks coffee and smokes. i was just wondering how much would it cost for him to see you and get them sorted as he really wants better looking teeth so he can smile.

    an NHS dentist can sort this and the most it would cost is £204 (for crowns/ bridges/denture and for this every tooth that needs treatment will be sorted. If only fillings/ root canal/extractions need doing then all of them will be done for £47.xx

    Could you recommend a very good tooth whitener. My front teeth are very badly stained due to smoking and tea drinking. I have tried lots of different things but none seem to help. Its so embarrassing talking to people or smiling for pictures because all you can see are these discoloured teeth, even though I have always been very good at looking after my teeth. I am a 44yr old female and registered disabled, unable to work due to my disability and have a 3yr old daughter so cant afford too much
