Extrinsic and intrinsic factors can cause the discolouration of your teeth. Extrinsic factors include exterior stains on teeth caused by smoking, dietary issues, dental cavities, or disease and can be removed through regular cleanings and whitening procedures.
The main cause of bleeding gums is the buildup of plaque at the gum line. Bleeding gums leads to a condition called gingivitis, or inflamed gums.
Gum recession is when the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth root. Mild gum recession can be treated successfully by deep cleaning the affected area.
Tooth wear refers to loss of tooth substance by means other than dental caries or dental trauma. Tooth wear is a complex problem and there is difficulty identifying a single cause factor.
There are many different types of cracked teeth and they show a variety of symptoms. Symptoms of cracked teeth can include erratic pain when biting into food or when your tooth is exposed to temperature extremes.
