Dental pigmentation (external coloration of the tooth) is usually local, and in turn is divided into extrinsic or intrinsic.
These pigmentations are mostly multifactorial and affect both vital and non-vital teeth.
All substances that cause tooth discoloration are called chromogenic.
Causes of dental pigmentation
Within the extrinsic causes that cause staining we have primary agents such as tea, wine, nicotine, food dyes also included in many ‘sweets’.
Foods that do not stain or discolor teeth are, for example white rice, pasta with cheese or cream, white meats, white fish, dairy products, white chocolate… Those that do add color are rice for paella (with dye), pasta with tomato sauce, red meat, oily fish, ketchup, mustard, black coffee, black tea, red wine, dark chocolate…
An excellent option to restore the natural color of your teeth is by applying tooth whiteners.
