Why do someone lipsticks make my teeth look yellow?

Some lipsticks can make your teeth appear yellow due to their pigmentation and color. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Bright colors: Bold, bright colors such as red, fuchsia, and orange contain a lot of pigment and can stain your teeth when they come into contact with them.

  2. Blue-based shades: Lipsticks with a blue base can help neutralize the yellow tones in your teeth, making them appear whiter.

  3. Pigment type: Some lipsticks contain iron oxides or other pigments that can discolor your teeth.

  4. Food and drink: Eating and drinking can transfer lipstick to your teeth, making them appear yellow.

To avoid having your lipstick make your teeth appear yellow, consider using lipsticks with blue-based shades, avoiding highly pigmented colors, wiping your mouth after eating or drinking, and using a straw to drink beverages. Additionally, regularly brushing and flossing your teeth can help keep them looking their whitest.
