Common Causes of Yellow Teeth

Common Causes of Yellow TeethYellow teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile, but you do not have to tolerate stains or discolorations. Dr. Mirani, cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, offers a variety of teeth whitening treatments that can restore your bright smile. Avoiding stain-causing habits can also help keep your teeth whiter and brighter.

Some patients may have naturally yellow smiles. This coloration is generally because the dentin is showing through the translucent dental enamel. Only advanced whitening treatments will combat this type of yellowing. Aging is another common cause of yellow teeth. Dental enamel may thin over time and reveal the dentin, or poor dental hygiene can leave discolorations on your teeth because of plaque or tartar buildup.

Your diet can also yellow your teeth. Tea, wine, cola and coffee can all discolor your teeth as can berries, tomato sauce, curries and other richly colored foods. Nicotine in the form of cigarettes or chewing tobacco can leave yellow or brown deposits on your teeth.

Brushing at least twice a day and flossing every day can keep your teeth clean and plaque-free. Use fluoride toothpaste to help build enamel and a soft-bristled toothbrush to minimize the risk of enamel damage. Talk to our dentist about your whitening options. If you have more severe stains on your teeth such as those caused by antibiotic use, you may need porcelain veneers instead of traditional whitening products.
