Do Genes Matter for Teeth Color?

Do Genes Matter for Teeth Color?

2 minute read

First of all, you should know that genes affect every aspect of your life! Genes determine the color of your hair and eyes, your teeth, your height, your body type, the disease that you might develop in the future… etc.. Your teeth, skin, and eyes are all hereditary; we have our own personal shades and tones. Although many external factors affect the color of your teeth, genetics also play a role in it. (Check our blog “10 Foods to Avoid For Teeth Whitening” if you want to know what foods affect the color of your teeth!) 


Genes do affect your teeth color!

Genes affect the way your enamel is developed. People who naturally developed a thicker enamel will have whiter teeth than others. On the other hand, the people who have thinner enamel have yellow teeth. This is entirely out of your control! For example, if you have perfect hygiene habits but thin enamel, your teeth may still be a bit discolored.

Besides the environment, aging also makes your teeth yellow. As we get older, the outer enamel of our teeth gets thinner. The dentin will possibly show through after the outer enamel gets thinner. Dentin is darker than our enamel, causing a grey and yellow appearance on your teeth. Dentin continually grows as you age, which decreases the size of the pulp chamber and causes your teeth looks even darker.

No matter what causes your teeth discoloration, Novashine has your back!

The Novashine teeth whitening kit has the most sufficient amount of hydrogen peroxide that can whiten your teeth while still avoiding damage to your enamel. You will see dramatic results after using it once a day for 5 days when you start it. After that, you can use it 1-2 times a week to maintain your brighter smile!

If you prefer to whiten your teeth without changing your daily routine, you could also choose to use our Teeth Whitening Mouthwash or Toothpaste! They are made of natural ingredients and both of them contain less hydrogen peroxide, which is a better option for people who are afraid of getting sensitive teeth!
