Yellow Teeth May Not be Your Fault!

Many people know that yellow teeth can be caused by smoking, drinking coffee and/or tea and red wine. If you’re not using or consuming any of those products, you’re probably wondering why you have yellow teeth.

The culprit is most likely part of the natural aging process.

Yellow Teeth Can Be Healthy Teeth

So, you have a mouth full of healthy teeth but you are concerned about the color now that your teeth have yellowed. Are you wondering why?

Aging can lead to thinning tooth enamel which gives way to allowing the color the interior of the tooth, dentin, to show through.

Dentin, the hard inner surface of the tooth, contains a pulp that is yellowish in color.  As enamel thins, the thicker interior will show through the more transparent, thin enamel surface.

Yellow teeth can make you look even older than you are as well as give you an unhealthy appearance.

Your Choices to Whiten Yellow Teeth

Many people try bleaching products or tooth pastes that promise whitening only to find that neither is doing the trick. That’s because if your yellow teeth are caused by aging, it’s not the same as bleaching out stains. Simply the enamel needs to be resurfaced.

If yellow teeth are making you look older and taking away that sparkle in your smile, you’ll want to consider resurfacing your teeth with porcelain veneers.
