Dr Oz knows that one of the things that many of us are most ashamed of when we smile is our yellow teeth. Why do your teeth get yellow and discolored? And what is the top secret Dr Oz Teeth Whitening Home Remedy? Here is what Doctor Oz said about keeping your teeth pearly white!
Dr Oz’s guest from the audience of the Dr Oz Show said that she tried the Whitening Strips for teeth, but they made her teeth very sensitive. Dr Oz said that an increase in teeth sensitivity is a very common side effect of these whitening products.
Dr Oz: Why Do Teeth Turn Yellow?
Dr Oz showed the anatomy of a tooth. There is a nerve that runs through the middle of the tooth and the bright white color on the outside of the tooth is the enamel, but as the enamel erodes, your white teeth discolor and turn yellow. Dr Oz said that dentists will tell you that anything that can stain a t-shirt can also stain your teeth. The key to keeping your teeth white is to not let it get too far along in the yellowing process.
Dr Oz did a demonstration to show how if you drink coffee, it can stain your teeth. If your teeth are healthy and you drink coffee, then you can wipe it off afterward with no stain left behind. However, if you have plaque forming on your teeth from eating sugary foods, then the plaque can tear off part of your tooth’s enamel and leave a hole. Then, when you drink the coffee, the stains remain on your tooth even if you wipe it off right afterward.
