Teeth whitening with our general dentist Whanganui, New Zealand

Everyone wants clean, white teeth. Clean, white teeth help create an excellent first impression and it helps boost your self-esteem. Yellow or stained teeth can give a negative impression and it can also have a negative impact on interpersonal relationships. When you are speaking to someone your eyes unconsciously move across their face including their teeth. It is important to maintain a good dental hygiene routine and visit the dentist on a regular basis to make sure that your teeth are clean and white and are having a positive impact on you and your life.

Causes of yellow teeth

There are many different causes of yellow teeth and different ways to manage them. Food and drink is the main cause of yellow teeth. Food contains strong pigments which can discolour your teeth. Certain drinks such as coffee, wine and black tea contain a component called tannin which contains a black pigment that penetrates the teeth causing discoloration. It is important that we brush, floss and rinse our mouth after meal times to prevent our teeth from becoming stained and yellow.

Tooth discoloration also occurs as a result of lifestyle choices such as smoking. Tar from cigarettes does not break down naturally in the mouth, rather it sticks to the surface of the teeth causing discolouration. Your teeth can lose their white and shine as a result of ageing, trauma and genetic disease. The problem is that once your teeth become yellow or stained it is difficult to restore their original colour. Improving your choice of food and drink can have a beneficial impact on the health and appearance of your teeth. Making better lifestyle choices for example if you quit smoking, can have a significant beneficial impact on your dental health and overall well-being.
