Why are my teeth yellow?

Red wine, tea, and coffee are prominent examples of foods that contain a lot of tannin and can discolour your teeth. These tannins can affect the colour of your teeth over time because they penetrate the enamel. As we age, our teeth may also begin to yellow; this is a normal aspect of ageing. Due to normal wear and tear, the enamel may eventually deteriorate, exposing the colour of the dentine underneath. Additionally, as you age, the dentine that lies beneath the enamel thickens, giving the tooth’s colour a more solid appearance and making it appear darker.

Is it bad that my teeth are yellow?

Most people’s teeth exhibit the yellowish colour of dentine through their enamel; however, some do have thinner or more translucent enamel, which will make some people’s teeth appear more yellow than others. As previously mentioned, while the dentine gets denser, the tooth also gets darker. The next time you visit the dentist, bring up your concerns even though it may not necessarily mean that there is a problem with your teeth.

Can you get yellow teeth white again?

Your teeth can be made whiter and brighter, and their colour can be improved. Some stains can be removed with the help of a hygienist visit; then, you can whiten your teeth. It’s important to note that only a licenced dental professional is legally permitted to do tooth whitening.

Are yellow teeth permanent?

By using expert tooth whitening procedures, you can enhance the appearance of your teeth. Before beginning the therapy, you must see a dentist to make sure that your oral health is adequate. Any bleaching should only be done on a dentist’s or dental care professional’s advice. Avoid using toothpastes that claim to whiten teeth because they can be excessively abrasive and harm teeth.

Can you rebuild tooth enamel?

Enamel cannot be repaired once it has been damaged. By increasing the mineral content, it would be able to improve it to some extent. Enamel cannot be rebuilt by toothpaste, although it’s possible that they can help with the remineralization procedure. Call the office to learn more about our tooth whitening package, which includes a visit with our hygienist, your personalised whitening trays, and whitening gel.
