Help! My Teeth Are Yellow!

Your teeth are an incredibly important part of both your overall and emotional health. A strong smile is crucial to proper chewing and eating habits, and a beautiful smile can make or break your self-esteem. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) found in a survey that nearly half of adults believe that your smile is the most memorable feature of a first impression. 

They also found that having a flawed smile makes you 37% less attractive and 25% less confident.

At the EZ Dental Clinic, we’re on a mission to make sure all of our patients are confident in their smiles. Our team of expert dentists offers the most advanced teeth whitening solutions to help you face the world with a bright, white smile. 

Common causes of yellow teeth

Everything from lifestyle factors and the aging process contributes to yellow teeth. Age-related teeth yellowing happens when everyday wear-and-tear of the enamel of your teeth exposes the more yellowish interior. 

Some of the most common lifestyle and medical factors associated with yellow teeth include:

Your family tree might also be to blame as genetics can play a role in tooth color. So if your parents or other family members have been prone to yellow teeth, your risk of developing yellow teeth increases.

How to whiten your teeth

You’ve likely walked through the aisles at the store looking for the best toothpaste, gels, and kits to whiten your teeth. We’re sorry to say that you won’t find the kind of teeth-whitening power you’re seeking. But you can get it from our experts. 

We offer the best, most potent at-home teeth-whitening treatments that far surpass any drug store solutions. Our dentists take the time to tell you exactly how to use them and how to care for your teeth to ensure the best results. 

You can take the power of in-office whitening solutions with you and get a professional whitening treatment in the comfort of your own home.

Making your teeth whitening treatment last

To make sure your teeth stay as white as possible for as long as possible, we equip you with detailed follow-up care instructions. They typically include steps such as temporarily avoiding certain foods and drinks. 

Maintaining a consistent dental hygiene routine is also crucial for maintaining pearly brights, so don’t forget to schedule routine professional cleanings. Properly brushing and flossing your teeth is also important, not only for maintaining the whiteness of your teeth but also for preventing issues such as plaque buildup, decay, and gum disease. 

If you’d like more information about how we can help you whiten your teeth, don’t hesitate to request an appointment online or over the phone at our Bellevue, Washington, location.
