Having yellow, discolored teeth can lower your self-esteem and take the beauty away from your smile. This is quite unfortunate for many. If you’re one who suffers tooth discoloration, our dentist, Dr. Dorsey W. Baker, has some good news for you: You can whiten your yellow teeth and prevent tooth stains in the future! To help you do so, he has some helpful tips for you.
The first thing you need to do is determine the severity of your tooth discoloration. Your dentist can help you with this task if you schedule an appointment. Then, reflect on your lifestyle choices that might be causing the tooth stains. These could be things like drinking soda, wine, or coffee or even things like eating tooth-staining foods, like tomato sauce and dark berries. It’s best to cut these things out of your life as much as possible. If this is difficult for you, at least rinse your mouth with water after consuming these foods and drinks.
The second thing you need to do is start a whitening program. The right whitening program for you depends on the severity of your tooth stains. Your program might involve using whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, or whitening trays or it could involve getting a professional whitening treatment. If you let a whitening treatment fix your yellow teeth and if you keep up with the treatments, there is a good chance you can whiten your smile and prevent stains in the future.
