The most common causes of yellow teeth include diet (coffee, red wine, sodas), smoking habit, and poor oral hygiene. Patients who are undergoing chemotherapy for head or neck cancers may develop yellow or stained teeth too. Also, certain types of prescription medications and excessive consumption of fluoride during childhood can cause discolouration of teeth. If you have yellow teeth, do get a check up first as there are various non-invasive treatments available, depending on the severity of your condition.
No, not everyone experiences sharp pain upon consumption of cold food/drinks. If you do, and if the sensitivity becomes frequently disturbing, then you may need to seek for help. A lot of times, the treatment can be as simple as applying a coat of protective gel on your tooth surface, or just a simple filling.
Tooth decay is the softening of your tooth enamel and refers to the damage of the structure of the tooth caused by acids that are created when plaque bacteria break down sugar in your mouth. If this loss of mineral from the enamel is left untreated, a cavity, or hole in the tooth, can eventually occur.
