Yellow Teeth

Our ‘pearly whites’ don’t always keep that bright white colour we wish they did. Let us brighten your smile!

Feel like you are trying everything to whiten your teeth? Brushing twice a day? Flossing? Not to mention, all the fad supermarket whitening products? You still find those yellow teeth are not the shade you dream of?

We know that discoloured or stained teeth can be embarrassing but it doesn't need to be permanent. At Maven Dental, we have teeth whitening treatments available that are not only dental grade, but both cost-effect and long lasting.

Symptoms of Yellow Teeth

Stained teeth can range from brown spots and yellow tints to white streaks on the enamel. You may have a couple of yellow or discoloured teeth, which you may notice stand out against the others. Sometimes all teeth may appear discoloured or stained.

If a whiter, brighter more confident smile is what you are after, book an appointment with a Maven dentist to discuss your options.

Causes of Yellow Teeth

When it comes to the causes of the discolouration, there are many factors that contribute depending upon your lifestyle and dental history, which include:

  • What you eat and drink regularly – Highly acidic foods, pigmented food, coffee, red wine, soft drinks, and smoking can all contribute to the stains and discolouration.
  • The discolouration from the tooths inner structure, caused by too much exposure to fluoride, medications, nerve damage, or even tooth trauma.
  • Age related discolouration as the enamel gets thinner it causes a change in the tooth colour.

The cost of treating yellow or discoloured teeth will depend on the treatment your dentist recommends. At Maven Dental, we look beyond your teeth’s appearance and assess your overall oral health first.

There are many contributing factors to yellow or discoloured teeth and your dentist would be best placed to advise on the cause and recommended treatment.   If you have concerns about yellow or discoloured teeth, we recommend you book an appointment with a Maven dentist.

Yellow or discoloured teeth need to be assessed to determine the contributing factors. Whilst you can be treated at a regular clean appointment, you may require professional whitening treatments to make a difference to your smile. A dentist is the most qualified person to examine and identify the cause of your discolouration. Teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone, so consult a dentist first.

Yes. It all comes down to taking care of your oral health, with a combination of at-home dental care and building a regular relationship with your dentist or dental hygienist.

We recommend daily healthy habits and regular visits to your dentist. For a healthy smile and overall good oral health:

  • Practice good oral hygiene at home including brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day.
  • Book routine hygiene & check-up visits with a dentist or dental hygienist every 6 months or as advised by your dentist.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle by avoiding tobacco use and excess consumption of coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohol. Try switching out some of your daily drinks for water instead.

We understand that some people feel anxious about visiting the dentist.  At Maven Dental, we work hard to make you feel comfortable and to create environments that feel safe and welcoming.  We also believe that communication is key and invite you to share any concerns you may have prior or upon arrival.

While everyone is different, we’ve created a list of tips that can help to reduce anxiety related to dentist visits – read more
