 Color of Your Teeth can Reveal Your Age

The color of your teeth may be revealing a little more than your oral hygiene habits after a new study published in the journal PLoS ONE revealed that teeth color can be used to detect a person's age, health and illness.

The study was conducted by researchers at Leeds University and Central Lancashire University who digitally changed the spacing and colors of the teeth in the pictures of models and showed them to 150 young men and women.
