Re: BROWN and YELLOW teeth from toothpastes

Now, can I ask a question?
My teeth are actually on the white side even though I drink wine and coffee and smoke (all in moderation), but I've been told this is because I have thin enamel.

People with thicker enamel have darker teeth and those with thinner enamel had whiter teeth. 1. Is this true? and 2. If it is true, what is enamel erosion? how do I know I have it & how can I prevent it?
Brushing your teeth straight after something acidic can be bad for the tooth enamel. I see my colleagues running off to the bathroom to brush their teeth straight after lunch. You ideally should wait at least an hour.
