    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 →

    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?

    You can buy Crest white strips on eBay.. they're actually really good and relatively cheap compared to whitening methods in the UK.. they can make your teeth quite sensitive after use but the sensitivity does fade

    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 34 and some of my teeth have crumbled. I only have 24 teeth left and at least 5 have crumbled. I brush my teeth twice per day. My dentist told me that it's due to smoking. I have friends who smoke more than I do but have perfect teeth. Why are my teeth doing this and how do I stop it?

    Hi, I'm 15 and recently my dentist has been baffled as to why I still have my baby teeth. I recently had to go there because if two teeth chipping, they were both baby teeth, molars and both on the side of the mouth I eat with normally. The dentist a say it was caused by the pressure of the adult teeth growing and excessive grinding, probably while in bed.My teeth are in good condition, I brush two-three times a day with Clinomin toothpaste as it prevents staining from tea and coffee. I was wondering if there is anything I could do about getting my baby teeth out and stopping grinding, as my dentist hasn't offered me any treatment. Please help, I love my teeth lots, thanks.

    hi, im 18 and had the same brown marks on my 2 front teeth through medication etc from when i was younger. i went to the dentist several times and they suggested having vaneers to cover my teeth. i recently moved to a new dentist who suggested microabrasion where they put some acidic substance on the teeth and scrape it off which removes the discolouration i had this done a few months ago and im now completely happy with my teeth :) x

    you have got 2 options, 1st don't worry about them at all, if it's not painful, we all have got at least one weakness, some one is short, some one have got bad teeth, some girls got really small breast, .... 2nd, you pull these 2 tooth out and make 2 new once, ( artificial) however it will costs you.

    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 have very low confidence about my teeth and find it really hard to enjoy life and work life. I am 49yrs old and live on my own and just about manage to get by each month and struggle to even pay for the very most basic of care on my teeth. My teeth are becoming loose and are badly stained and I am worried if I don't do something soon I will continue to lose teeth. I also have problems with wisdom teeth and think that they could be pushing my back teeth out. Please help me gain back my smile again.

    i would strongly suggest an electric toothbrush. i used to hate the colour of my teeth, as they where stained from coffee and smoking, and was constantly paranoid about letting anybody see them. if you don't smoke or drink coffee, other reason your teeth may be stained could be because of enamel wearing away. make sure you don't brush your teeth straight after drinking fruit juices, as this softens enamel and brushing wears it away. i've tried every single whitening toothpaste and mouthwash that can be bought over the counter, and trust me, there a complete waste of money. a decent electric toothbrush (i have an oral b one) can be a little pricey, however you'll defiantly be able to see and feel the difference.

    Hi, i am 15 years old and i have had really yellow stained teeth since i can rememeber. i asked my dentist and she said my teeth were completely fine and i should just stay away from all kinds of tooth whitening things, such as toothpaste and mouthwash. i dont understand why she would say this, i know that it will ruin my enamel seeing as though i am young, but i have no confidence on my facial area because of them. i find them really horrible and cant stand to look at my teeth. i brush and clean my teeth twice a day and all, but they are still yellow. i have lowered my coffee intake because i know that can stain your teeth, but nothing has happened. i really would like some help to find a way to make them, go a little bit nicer, than yellow.
