Yellow Teeth – and what you can do about it

Lots of people ask us here at Dentistry on King why their teeth are appearing yellower or darker over time.

This is a common phenomenon and is due to multiple factors:

Thinning of the enamel (the outer surface of the tooth). The whiter enamel gets worn away over the years and reveals the yellower dentine underneath.

Staining. As teeth age, they pick up stains. Anything that can stain a white T-shirt can stain a tooth eg red wine, coffee, tea, smoking.

Dental trauma. Sometimes previous trauma to a tooth can cause it to go darker or yellow over time.

What can be done to make my teeth whiter?
