Black Teeth: An Unsightly Dental Condition

Everybody wants to look good and we have set our sights on our Hollywood idols to follow and imitate. We envy them for their beautiful skin, slender bodies and pearly white teeth. Particularly that million-dollar smile is something that leave many people mesmerized. Sadly, only a few of us are gifted with that bright smile. While some of us are luckier with yellow teeth only, there are those who have it worse—black teeth.

This black teeth condition is primarily due to bad dental hygiene, highly attributed to the failure to brush, floss and rinse regularly. In a fast-paced world, most people no longer care about dental hygiene and tend to forego the simple routine of brushing one's teeth. Added to that is the daily intake of coffee, cigarettes and sweets, causing unwanted residue and deposits to accumulate on teeth.

Cigarette smoking, in particular, is the most common of all causes. The nicotine residue stains the teeth. As a result, the accumulated plaque tends to cause discoloration on the teeth. In time, they will slowly become black.

Tooth decay is also attributed as one of the causes of black teeth. The bacteria lodged in, around and between the teeth cause the discoloration. As the decay progresses, it will also lead to black teeth.

Black teeth are an unsightly and unwanted appearance. No one wants to flash a smile with black teeth. Not only is it an esthetic concern, it is also a serious and painful dental condition, especially when the decay hits the tooth's pulp.
