Most people experience some degree of yellowing or staining as they age. While the transition from white to stained may be subtle, we can soon make a habit of trying to conceal our teeth when we talk, smile or laugh because we don’t like the way they look. Having yellow teeth can make us feel self-conscious in social and professional settings. That’s why teeth whitening is such a simple and important investment in your appearance that can truly change the way you feel about yourself.

What Does Teeth Whitening Involve?

Professional teeth whitening by a dentist involves the application of a peroxide-based gel or liquid on the surface of the teeth. Each whitening plan is custom because the strength and composition of the formula needed will vary based on the severity of the yellowing, staining or discoloration. Most treatment sessions take between 30 minutes and an hour. For some patients, full results are achieved after just one visit. Other patients might benefit from slowly bringing teeth up shade by shade over the course of five to 10 visits.

The Truth About Dental Stains: Why Do I Have Yellow Teeth?

You haven’t necessarily done anything “wrong” just because you have yellow or stained teeth. Teeth often become discolored as we age. However, there are some habits and circumstances that are known to cause teeth yellowing. Here’s a look:

  • Genetics: Did you know that your teeth can take on different hues based on your genetics? If your parents had teeth that skewed yellow or gray, there’s a good chance that your not-quite-white teeth were actually passed down to you by genetics. The good news is that you can still even out the discoloration to get a whiter smile!

  • Worn Enamel: Teeth can turn yellow or gray as enamel wears down.

  • Certain Foods: Yes, certain foods really can stain your teeth when consumed regularly. Some of the biggest offenders are actually natural, healthy foods. Don’t be surprised if your teeth have lost their luster if you consume lots of tomatoes, beets, curry spices, berries or balsamic dressing. All of these foods contain pigments that are known to stain enamel.

  • Coffee and Tea: It’s not a surprise that coffee and tea are responsible for tooth staining.
  • Wine: Both red and white wine can create the perfect environment for yellow or stained teeth.

  • Trauma: A broken or damaged tooth can become discolored if the tooth enamel has been cracked.

  • Tooth Grinding: If you grind your teeth, you could weaken your enamel enough for it to become cracked and yellow.

  • Antibiotics: Children who take antibiotics before the age of eight can potentially experience tooth yellowing as a result. What’s more, your yellow teeth could be owed to the fact that your mother took antibiotics during pregnancy.

  • Smoking: Nicotine can leave thick brown and yellow stains all over the teeth.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Tooth whitening isn’t permanent. However, it’s very common for people to enjoy whiter teeth for years before coming back for additional treatments. Factors like genetics and lifestyle play big roles in how long whitening results can last. Here are some ways to prolong the results of teeth whitening:

While getting your teeth whitened can do wonders for your confidence level, it’s still important to make sure you’re not addressing oral-health issues on the surface only. It’s a great idea to get a dental exam to spot any potential sources of cavities, rot or decay that could be jeopardizing your oral health. Any cracks or chips in your enamel could be contributing to staining. For best results, you should consider repairing and treating any issues with your teeth or gums that are causing concern prior to booking your whitening session.

What to Expect When Getting Your Teeth Whitened

A whitening solution will be applied to the surface of your teeth. The solution will be allowed to sit on the teeth while it is absorbed into the enamel and dentin layers. Next, a chemical reaction will cause the stains that are sitting on your teeth to be dissolved at the molecular level. While the solution will be removed from your teeth before you leave the office, the activated ingredients will continue to dissolve stains for up to a full day.
