The teeth are probably the first thing we people notice when we encounter somebody and that may happen involuntary. The teeth contribute greatly to the aesthetical effect and white and healthy teeth are a must have for a beautiful smile that can spread all the positive energy and just give off a wonderful vibe.
Other than this aesthetic effect, white and healthy teeth are a reflection of the person’s health and wellbeing. They can bring more self-esteem to a person and a better quality of life.
The health of the teeth is extremely important because rotten and yellow teeth can mean some internal issues. They also cause a bad aesthetical effect and are a reflection of the person’s hygiene.
Factors that influence the health of the teeth and that may make them look very unappealing are smoking, tobacco, lack of hygiene, bad diet, certain diseases, dental materials, ageing and genetics.
The daily habits and lifestyle also are a great factor when it comes to healthy teeth and excessive drinking and drinks like coffee and tea can cause extra stains on the teeth.
