Teeth Whitening in Delson
What Causes Yellow Teeth
Get your bright smile back! Yellowing of the teeth is almost inevitable with time. Several factors are to blame:
- Staining foods (tea, coffee, curry, red wine, dark juices, cigarettes, etc.)
- Staining tetracycline
- Previous white composite restorations that have turned yellow over time
- Tooth wear
- Visible cavities
- Plaque and tartar deposits on the teeth
Discoloration caused by various foods and plaque deposits can easily be treated with the help of a whitening gel, either at home or in your dentist’s office. That being said, teeth that have yellowed as a result of aging or antibiotics are more difficult to treat. For some people, simply scaling and polishing the teeth is sufficient.
