Similar to other indoor Orchids, the Ludisia discolour has native origins to tropical locations in South-East Asia. The species was initially described by John Ker-Gawler in 1818 as Goodyera discolor, but was subsequently moved into its own genus by Achille Richard seven years later. His reasoning for the name is still unclear today.
Ludisia discolour belongs to a family of petite orchids, commonly known as 'Jewel Orchids'. This orchid produces spectacular, dark, oval-shaped leaves with iridescent pink veins, and is the perfect addition to any collector looking to expand their collection into something a little more unusual.
The discoloured, non-vital anterior tooth is a common aesthetic concern for many patients. It can have a profound effect on their self-esteem, interaction with others and employability. Discoloured non-vital teeth are frequently compromised owing to previous trauma, caries, endodontic therapy and failed restorations. Destructive invasive treatment options are likely to weaken the residual structure of the tooth. This can reduce the prognosis and challenge the long-term viability of the tooth, thereby initiating further prosthetic predicaments. This paper discusses modern approaches to the treatment of discoloured teeth. The importance of preventing and eliminating the potential for discoloration will be highlighted. The paper will include a detailed technical account on the application of the inside/outside bleaching technique, with several clinical examples.

Dead-end flushing, as with other activities on the water distribution system, can disturb deposits that normally occur in water pipes. If you notice your tap water is brown or discoloured, please be assured the water is still safe.
We work to deliver high quality water every day. Sometimes customers report their tap water has an unusual taste, smell or is discoloured. The information below explains what could be causing this and what can be done about it.
Coffee and tea contain tannins (acidic polyphenols) that lead to the staining and discolouration of teeth. Their acidity also alters the pH balance in your mouth, causing any acidic food you eat after drinking coffee to cause additional damage, more quickly.
If your tooth discolouration looks more toward grey than yellow, it may be red wine that is to blame. Unfortunately, grey discolouration is a little harder to remove than yellow. The culprits in red wine are the same as those in coffee and tea: tannins.
Coffee and tea are full of tannins that stain and discolour your teeth. Plus, these beverages are quite acidic which can further damage the enamel. To curtail any staining, you can add some milk to lighten the colour and then rinse with a glass of water after to act as a buffer from the acids. The quality also makes a difference, so stick to high-quality brands if you want whiter teeth.
Naturally occurring minerals (primarily iron and manganese) in the water are typically to blame for water discolouration. These minerals, which are heavier than water, settle in water mains under normal operating conditions. When water flow in the water mains increases due to events such as water main breaks, firefighting or water main flushing, the minerals are scoured from the water mains and end up flowing from your faucets when you turn on the tap. Below are some frequently asked questions about discoloured water.
