At A Supa Smile we have three questions about your teeth. Do you ever avoid looking at your smile in the mirror? Are you happy with what you see there? Or, do yellow teeth take away from the impact of your smile? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we can help!
The great news is that A Supa Smile treats patients just like you, daily; patients who live with smiles that are less than perfect. And what we always point out to them, and what we want you to know, is that you don’t have to live with yellow teeth – together we can restore your stunning smile!
Causes of Yellow Teeth
Some common causes are:
Sometimes, tooth color runs in the family. If your parents’ teeth are yellow, it’s likely that yours are a similar hue.
Teeth look yellow when the enamel is thin and the dentin underneath shows through it. Dentin is a deep yellow to brownish material inside your teeth under the enamel, and it’s often responsible for the yellow you see when you look in the mirror.
Teeth inevitably turn yellow as you get older, as enamel wears away from chewing and exposure to acids from food and drink.
Smoking isn’t just an unhealthy addiction; it also leaves yellowish or brownish surface stains on your teeth.
Many foods stain teeth. Tomatoes in pasta sauce, curry spices and berries all contain pigments that cling to tooth enamel and stain this surface. Even a healthy salad with balsamic vinegar dressing can leave an unsightly color on your teeth.
Coffee and tea are two of the most common causes of yellow teeth, but red and white wine are also to blame. Other culprits include dark and light sodas and sports drinks with artificial flavoring.
Tetracycline antibiotics stain teeth when they’re developing in the gums.
The impact of an accident or physical trauma can crack tooth enamel and damage the tooth’s interior, leading to discoloration that may indicate bleeding that needs professional attention.
How Can I Prevent or Treat Teeth Discolouration?
By making a few simple lifestyle changes, you may be able to prevent teeth discolouration. Also, improve your dental hygiene by brushing, flossing, and using a mouthwash daily, and getting your teeth cleaned by a dental hygienist every 6 months.
Dental Treatments to Whiten Teeth
Treatment options to whiten teeth can vary depending on the cause of the discolouration and may include:
- Using proper tooth brushing and flossing techniques
- Avoidance of the foods and beverages that cause stains
- Using over-the-counter whitening agents
- In-home whitening agents purchased from your dentist
- In-office whitening procedures
