Treatments for yellow teeth

  • Professional dental cleaning

You should visit your dental hygienist or dentist every 6 months for prophylaxis and scaling. If, despite these treatments, your teeth still appear yellow and you’re seeking more significant results, you may want to explore other options.

  • Keep your teeth clean

Regardless of the current colour of your teeth, maintaining good oral hygiene is key to preventing yellowing over time. Brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day is essential.

  • Professional teeth whitening

Arguably, the most effective way to change the colour of yellow teeth is to visit your dentist for professional whitening. You can get optimal results in one visit by using lasers or LEDs with concentrated whitening products.

  • Dental veneers

If your teeth are yellow, crooked or chipped, you can opt for dental veneers to address these issues. Veneers are thin coverings that fit over your teeth. They go unnoticed since they look like natural teeth, especially when made of ceramic.

  • Natural remedies

The most popular alternatives (not always effective, though) are the following:

Activated charcoal.

Coconut extract.

Sodium bicarbonate (highly abrasive, not recommended).

A mixture of coconut oil and turmeric.

What causes yellow teeth?

  • Why do teeth turn yellow?

Yellow teeth depend on various factors, such as eating habits, smoking, genetics, poor oral hygiene or certain medications.

  • Why are my teeth yellow if I don’t smoke?

Tobacco is not the only cause of yellow teeth. In many cases, this undesired colour results from consuming common foods found in anyone’s diet. Moreover, you should keep in mind that nobody has perfectly white and bright teeth naturally.

  • How can I whiten my yellow teeth?

If your teeth are extremely yellow, we recommend asking the dentist for a professional whitening treatment. This safe process will help you enhance the beauty of your smile.

  • How can I whiten my teeth at home?

Some natural products can whiten teeth. For example, activated charcoal can be used to remove surface stains resulting from certain foods.
