When your pearly whites turn yellow
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- If your teeth aren't bright white, the foods you eat or habits such as smoking may be to blame.
The American Dental Association mentions these potential factors for stained teeth:
- Drinking red wine, coffee or tea.
- Using tobacco.
- Getting older, which leads to enamel wear and allows yellowish dentin to show through.
- Using an antihistamine, high-blood pressure medication, some chemotherapy drugs or antipsychotic medication. Some children who take certain antibiotics also may have tooth discoloration.
