What Causes Yellow Teeth?
Your teeth can change colour due to extrinsic, intrinsic and even age-related factors.
Extrinsic – the outer surfaces of the teeth are stained due to the drink and foods we intake. Smoking can also cause extrinsic tooth discolouration.
The following are some of the foods and drinks that stain the teeth:
- Citrus and Acidic foods
- Red wine
Intrinsic – the discolouration is caused by the darkening of the inner structures in the teeth (dentin).
This type of discolouration is caused by one or two of the following reasons:
- Too much exposure to fluoride during childhood.
- Your mother used tetracycline antibiotics during the second trimester or when you were only 8 years old or younger.
- Trauma that damaged the developing permanent tooth when you were a child.
- Dentinogenesis imperfecta, a rare condition that causes teeth to be grayish, amber, or even purple.
Age-related– Age coupled with poor oral hygiene can also cause discoloured teeth.
Treatment at Golden Square Dental
Yellow teeth are easily fixed at Golden Square Dental. Your trusted team in Golden Square has a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services to get your pearly whites shining in no time.
Removes the stains on your teeth to significantly improve their appearance. Cavities are first treated before the whitening. Your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth and remove the tartar, to make it possible for the bleach to whiten the surface of the teeth.
Teeth whitening is not advised for pregnant women. Old crowns, fillings, and veneers are also not fixed by teeth whitening. Discoloured teeth with exposed roots such as in receding gums are also not treated with teeth whitening.
Thin, porcelain shells (millimetre thick) are attached to the surface of your teeth to improve their colour and solve other dental issues.
This dental procedure is advised to those with discoloured teeth that do not respond to natural teeth whitening and professional cleaning.
A small amount of your tooth enamel is scraped away to give way to the veneers. Each veneer is individually sculpted for each patient to ensure perfect fit and natural effect.
Porcelain veneers have the look of a natural tooth hence it is nearly impossible to tell one from the other. Further, veneers are proven to resist stain better than your natural teeth, and with proper dental care they can last 10-15 years.
