Why are my teeth so yellow?

You can develop yellow teeth for several reasons, but fortunately, we offer cosmetic treatments at our Orlando dental office to eliminate these stains and leave you with a bright, white smile.

Options for getting rid of yellow teeth include teeth whitening, and in more resistant cases, dental bonding and porcelain veneers. However, it’s a good idea to understand how your teeth became stained in the first place so you can take steps to address it going forward.

  • Poor oral hygiene: Brushing and flossing your teeth are essential for good oral health, but these practices also remove plaque and food debris that deposits yellow stains.
  • Diet: Foods and drinks that are high in tannins, such as coffee and red wine, leave staining pigments that give your teeth a yellowish hue.
  • Smoking: If you smoke, you can expect brown or yellow stains on your teeth. Professional teeth whitening can lift a lot of this staining from tooth enamel, but until you quit, you will always be fighting an uphill battle.

At Alafaya Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we offer solutions like teeth whitening at our Orlando dental office to get rid of yellow teeth and restore your beautiful bright smile. Call us to schedule a teeth cleaning so we can get started!
