Yellow teeth stains are one of the most common concerns people have with the appearance of their smile, largely due to the great number of foods, lifestyle habits, and various other factors that can lead to tooth discoloration. While the exact causes of teeth yellowing are unique to every individual, the top offenders tend to be regular consumption of coffee, wine, and soda; cigarette smoking and/or the use of other tobacco products; and poor oral hygiene. In addition, certain health conditions and/or the medications used to treat them can often bring about discoloration.
So what can you do to remove yellow tooth stains? If over-the-counter options like whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes have failed to meet your expectations, you may want to consider one of the following solutions:
- Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening – Teeth bleaching systems available from dentists are usually much more powerful than those found in drugstores and supermarkets. As a result, they can be significantly more effective at removing yellow stains and achieving a brighter, whiter smile. At our practice, Dr. Colin Morton offers DayWhite and NiteWhite take-home teeth whitening, enabling you to whiten your teeth by several shades from the comfort of your own home—often in as little as one week.
- Porcelain Veneers – In the case of deep, dark yellow stains—or if you wish to simultaneously correct chips, minor misalignments, and/or other aesthetic tooth concerns—porcelain veneers may be your best option. Affixed to the front surface of teeth, veneers conceal any underlying cosmetic tooth imperfections and can be colored to achieve the exact shade of white you desire for your smile. All porcelain veneers at our practice are custom-designed and placed by Dr. Morton for natural-looking, long-lasting results.
