Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Some people have uneven teeth, teeth that are too big, or dark teeth that lead to an unattractive smile.

1. Due to the stains on the teeth

This happens when the teeth have erupted. Dark stains can be caused by food, water, cigarettes or lozenges, mouthwashes. Examples include tea, coffee, tobacco, soft drinks, curries, food coloring, betel nut, chlorhexidine mouthwash (usually prescribed by dentists to treat periodontal disease or bad breath).

These stains often stick to the grooves in the teeth. Sometimes they stick to the smooth surface of the tooth surface and cover the entire tooth.

These stains can be of different colors: dark yellow, light brown to dark brown, or even black. The degree of darkening depends on many different factors and causes, so the bleaching ability also depends on those causes.

2. Due to Tetracycline infection

If the mother takes tetracycline-containing drugs while pregnant or the child takes these drugs before the age of 7-8, it can cause discoloration of the teeth. The degree of tooth darkening depends on the time, duration of medication, dose, and type of drug. Teeth color can become yellow, brown, or bluish-gray.

Tetracycline is an antibiotic. Today, there are also Doxycycline, Minocycline... are antibiotics in the same group as Tetracycline.

This color change can occur on the entire tooth or just in a certain area, causing the teeth to have different color bands. In severe cases, the teeth can also have holes, defects, and lose their normal shape.

3. Fluoridated teeth

Fluoride is a chemical that can occur in nature (e.g. in well water), because of its ability to fight tooth decay, it is often added to tap water, milk, toothpaste.

If pregnant women or children ingest too much fluoride from the above sources (especially children who use adult toothpaste), their teeth will have brown or milky stains. Severe cases can cause structural defects of teeth.
