Is your nose runny and are you only breathing out of your mouth when its cold out?

I see it all the time in patients who have allergies and breathe out of their mouth constantly due to their sinusitis. Not unusual.

Maybe try some allergy meds if that's causing you to breath out of your mouth more often. Otherwise, it's just something that happens. Your teeth should be just fine. I dont know what will cure the vanity though. :D

Must have something to do with handling urine soaked toilet paper.

sometimes I get brown streaks on my underpants, but it doesn't seem to be related to cold weather.

The visible structure of teeth is made of enamel which is organized into a regular grid of tubules. I don't know that it would happen that quickly but it's possible that the cold dry air passing your anterior teeth in particular could be dehydrating them causing them to whiten. That's how the light cured teeth whitening techniques work, but the chemical causes the whitening to be uniform.

Maybe you rode through a flock of seagulls. I’m reminded of the fellow who lost his chewing gum in a chicken coup…and thought he found it three times. :ihih:
