    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 →

    I have a yellow discolouration on my tongue that I have had for months and it is concerning me. My doctor prescribed Daktarin gel which I tried but I constantly have a yellow discolouration on my tongue which doesnt look very nice. I am also worried that it may result in bad breath. What can be causing this? and how can I get rid of it? Id appreciate any advice. I brush my teeth twice daily and also use mouthwash and I also have been using a tongue brush for months. The coating does scrape off my tongue with my tongue brush but it re-appears. I cannot get rid of the coating from the very back of my tongue either because I cannot reach that far using the tongue brush. Many thanks.

    Me too. My thick yellowish coating is only at the backof the tongue. I scrape it or brush it with a plastic scraper or toothbrush almost every day. Gps and an oral medicine practitioner have said there's probably nothing wrong but they've taken samples from my mouth an blood to check. I've had this condition for years and years and it really bugs me. I try to eat as many cleansing foods as poss- raw fruit and veg and am cutting back on sugar and dairy. It doesn't seem to smell- thank goodness! but looks horrible. I'm thinking of going to see a nutritionist next. Good luck with yours!

    I'm 17 and I've always had really thin enamel/enamel hypoplasia. This has made my teeth really sensitive, but it also makes my teeth look really yellow, apparently due to the dentine under the enamel. About 2 years ago I was put on tetracycline to treat acne, and it's made my teeth even yellower. I've read that both enamel hypoplasia and antibiotics cause intrinsic discolouration, so whitening wouldn't work, and even so my teeth would still be sensitive. Because my teeth have both a cosmetic problem and the sensitivity, would this equate to a 'clinical need' for veneers? I've read everywhere that the NHS will only do veneers if it's for a clinical reason and not cosmetic, so would thin enamel and the sensitivity it causes be classed as a clinical need?

    My 9 year old son gets orange discolouration between the gaps in his teeth. It brushes away but comes back, the dentist doesn't think it is anything to worry about but there must be a reason for it. Would be grateful for any help please.

    I'm 15 and overweight and I have dark discolouration of skin on my armpits, around my neck and on my inner thighs. I've tried creams and oils that are said to even out your skin tone; they have helped to lighten the discolouration slightly. What could I use that would help even it out and possibly cure it?

    I suffered from this for many years, I think it's called acanthosis nigracans. I used bio-oil on it but to no avail. However, last year I lost 10 stone (I was severely overweight) and the dark patches disappeared completely!

    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

    Hello Dr Christian. On your show on Mon 26th Sept you mentioned whitening creams and laser procedures that can be used to help remove discolouration of the skin. I have large areas of discolouration on both my lower legs owing to a long history of varicose vein surgery. Are there any creams or procedures that could tackle this problem to make my legs less embarrassing to look at. I went on the internet following your programme about this and found allmanner of remedies with as many warnings about being careful about those that can be harmful and contain banned mercurious compunds. Also many seemed to mention the reduction ofthe melanin pigment. That is not my problem it is the presence of blood which seeps through the upper skin layers that gives the discolouration and I think you mentioned something about that. Please advise Jim Derbyshire

    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, My wife has a dark skin discolouration on her back, she says she once saw an episode of your show where a woman had the same problem but on her face. this discolouration is apparently common amongst ethnic groups but my wife failed to catch the remedy presented by your show. She did note that there was cream given to the patient on the show who displayed positive results after a few weeks of use. We would be so grateful if you could tell us what cream that was as we have tried a number of different creams which have all failed. Thank you.

    My son is 13 years old and has bad discolouration on his front teeth , the dentist says it was caused by him having chicken pox when he was 3! Apparently it can affect the teeth that have not yet grown through , he will have his teeth whitened when he is 16

    Baby teeth are always a lot whiter than adult teeth as baby teeth have thicker enamel. So there is really no reaon to be concerned just use a fluoride toothpate and motuhwash daily.

    I have a brown line running through the enamel of my teeth My dentist said its just a discolouration but it Would help if I had anterior composite restoration I don't smile because my teeth look dirty. I am Very conscious of it. My mum said she would pay To have it done but we are apprehensive because For five teeth it will cost nearly £300 and we Are not sure it would be a good idea or not

    I have the same, it's not discouloration. I had antibiotics when I was 2 which caused my actual teeth to come out brown. Nothing could be done about it, you can't scrape it of. The only thing is having crowns which cost a lot of money.

    Hi I'm 13 years old and since my adult teeth have come through I have had a orange/yellow discolouration to one of my front teeth - why is this?

    I am 32 years old and have had problems with my teeth for many years. I had my first root canal at the age of 16. I now have 3 teeth on the bottom row that have broken off right at the gum and my dentist has just covered them with filling. They can still get very painful to eat on though.I also sometimes get a real metallic taste in my mouth. On the top row of my teeth I have now got some root exposure by the gums and discolouration which my dentist says is the beginning of decay. He prescribed me Duraphat toothpaste to use to help prevent the decay and I am using three times a day.The top row of my teeth are extremely sensitive and that also makes it difficult to eat. I am so worried that I am going to end up with all my teeth breaking off I would like to be able to do something now before I get to that stage. Please can you help?

    Hello, I'm a 20 year old male and I have a great fear of the dentist; the smell, the look, the noises. When I was younger I had an abusive father. He didn't physically abuse me, it was mentally. He never let me brush my teeth, comb my hair or any other day to day job. Due to only being young, I thought that everyone didn't brush their teeth so I didn't do it for years. Nobody commented on how bad they were until I reached high school and it was too late. I already had cavities, severe discolouration and crooked teeth. I tried to get it fixed at the dentist and managed to sit through a couple filling operations. I was then told I was to have a tooth removed and had the needle injection into my gum. The needle didn't numb my mouth properly so I could feel the work being done on my tooth and it was extremely painful. This made me be too afraid to visit a dentist so for years I have had the same horrible and unattractive teeth. I don't know what to do. My teeth cause depression and loneliness and I don't want to be like that anymore. I want healthy looking teeth so I don't feel ugly or alienated from society. Is there any help you can offer me?

    Hi, I had my front tooth knocked out about 5 years ago, I got a false tooth on a plate. My dentist promised me braces but never delievered. It's got to a point where I have so many fillings, wonky teeth, and discolouration from getting my tooth knocked out & I don't know what to do, & I can afford veneers or screw ins.. Any advice?
