If you’ve looked in the mirror recently to see your teeth looking yellow near the gum line, this isn’t a stain on your teeth, it’s likely a receding gum. When your gums begin to recede, it exposes your tooth’s dentin which naturally has a yellow hue. You might also start to experience increased sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Eventually, receding gums can result in pockets between your teeth where bacteria can build-up. Without treatment, this can result in gum disease (if you don’t already have it), bone loss, and tooth loss. So why does gum recession happen? Discover six of the top reasons below.
