Why do I have yellow teeth?
Yellow teeth can occur for a number of reasons, the most common being discolouration from food and lack of dental hygiene. Foods that commonly cause yellowing include coffee, tea, soft drinks and even cola! Other causes of tooth discolouration include:
- Tobacco is another very significant reason for teeth discolouration which can also cause issues deeper than mere cosmetic complications. Continued tobacco can also lead to severe gum disease and oral cancer which can result in death in severe cases.
- Disease can also cause yellowed teeth so it’s very important to have regular dental check-ups so that we can identify the source of the change in colour and monitor your general dental health.
- Age is another very common cause for yellowed teeth which can be prevented by keeping up a strict dental hygiene regime, routinely seeing your dentist at BlueSpa Dental and receiving regular whitening treatments.
Your genetics may also make your teeth appear yellow.
Your family may have naturally less enamel than other people, which allows the natural shade of dentine to show through the teeth which is a yellow colour. You may also suffer from amelogenesis imperfecta which is a mutation in teeth tissue which inflicts the development of teeth including the natural white appearance of the enamel. This can be extremely damaging to self-esteem and it can be a hard problem to live with, that’s why BlueSpa Dental is passionate about mending cosmetic problems so that you can get on with enjoying your life.
How can BluSpa Dental help me?
In order to help you we will first evaluate your teeth and determine the cause of the problem. If the problem is caused by a serious dental illness such as periodontitis we will first need to treat the issue. This will ensure a long-lasting result when we do finally restore the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. If we find that the problem is purely cosmetic we will most likely recommend tooth whitening, bonding or porcelain veneers as a solution.
Our Cosmetic options
Here at BlueSpa Dental we utilise a tooth whitening solution with a neutral PH so that there’s no harm done to the enamel of your teeth. We can also perform teeth bonding which involves using tooth-coloured resin to coat small imperfections in the teeth such as white flecks.
Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-coloured porcelain shells used to entirely cover the teeth. They are the quickest way to a perfect smile and a brilliant solution for somebody who wants that celebrity-standard smile.
