While yellow teeth do not require an emergency dental visit as other dental conditions, but yellow teeth can bring down your willingness and confidence to smile every day. Fortunately, you can preserve the color of teeth by maintaining a good oral hygiene and healthy eating habits.
Teeth can become yellow due to stains (both surface level and deep) and other factors. When brushing, flossing, eating and drinking which is good for teeth does not help your teeth, it is time to consider other alternatives. Tooth color can be improved with the help of over-the-counter products and our cosmetic dentist in Lakewood CA can also provide preventive suggestions on how to brighten your yellow teeth.
What causes yellow teeth?
Things such as tea, coffee, cigarettes can cause stains on your teeth over time. Tooth enamel wears as you age, thus teeth start to look yellowish over time. Tooth enamel is the white and hard surface of the tooth, and beneath it is a pale brown substance called dentin. As you age enamel naturally wears due to the acid production of foods and drinks. Thick enamel makes the teeth look whiter, but thin enamel allows the dentin to show through, as a result, teeth look yellowish.
Saliva is a natural neutralizing agent for the acid that is produced from foods and drinks. People suffering from dry mouth or who breathe through their mouth can prevent saliva from remoisturizing the mouth.
Prevent Yellow Teeth
Avoid smoking, drinking coffee, tea and soda or drink the stain-causing beverages through a straw. Drink water or milk after drinking or eating something acidic so that the acid's eroding effect is reduced. Avoid snacking between meals, which can allow the saliva to neutralize the acids in your mouth.
Teeth Whitening Procedure
Over the counter products are an affordable and convenient way of getting your teeth whiter, however, it is recommended that the products be used only when they are prescribed by a dentist. Because when these products are used without dentist's instructions then it may harm the gums and cause tooth sensitivity.
Teeth whitening can also be performed by a cosmetic dentist in Lakewood CA. With the help of teeth whitening, you can brighten your teeth by removing stains and discolorations. Whitening performed in a dental office is one of the popular cosmetic dental procedures as it can greatly your appearance. Whitening is not a one-time procedure, it is to be performed time to time if you want to preserve bright smile.
