WHITE TEETH 101

MIND-BLOWING FACT
TEETH AREN'T NATURALLY OPAQUE WHITE!

JAW-DROPPING FACT
THEY'RE ACTUALLY YELLOWISH WHITE
AND SEMI-TRANSLUCENT!

Teeth are made up of 3 layers.

• Enamel - Bluish white and translucent
• Dentin - A varying shade of yellow
• Pulp - Pinkish-red as it contains nerves and blood vessels

The colour of your teeth is usually determined by the enamel and dentin layer. People with thinner enamel will have yellowish teeth as the underlying dentin shows through.

TEETH TRIVIA

 

CHILDREN HAVE WHITER MILK TEETH, BECAUSE THEIR ENAMEL IS MORE OPAQUE THAN TRANSLUCENT.

DON’T BE TOO HARD ON YOUR TEETH OR YOURSELF

SOMETIMES, EVEN WITH THE BEST ORAL CARE,
YELLOWING CAN’T BE AVOIDED

TEETH ALWAYS ACT THEIR AGE

The outer enamel gets thinner as we age, causing the yellow underlying dentin layer to show through.

A TOUGH PILL TO SWALLOW

Some medication may cause tooth staining.
