What causes yellow teeth

Yellow teeth are not pretty, but discolouration of the teeth can happen quickly. But what exactly causes the yellow color of your teeth? There are several factors. For example, coffee, tea or even curry can cause discolouration to settle on your teeth. Cigarette smoke and alcohol are also known to cause tooth discolouration.

It is important to understand that yellow teeth are not always a sign of poor dental hygiene, but also depend on individual genetic factors. Our teeth eventually lose their outer layer of enamel as we age, allowing more dentine to be visible through the surface. Your teeth may also become less translucent as you age, giving them a darker appearance. To prevent yellow teeth, it is advisable to reduce the consumption of coffee, tea, cigarettes and alcohol and to enjoy yellowish foods such as turmeric in bulk. Good oral hygiene, regular brushing and regular visits to the dentist are also crucial to prevent discolouration and maintain dental health as well as oral care.

Over-the-counter products to whiten your teeth

If you are annoyed by yellow or discoloured teeth and are looking for an effective and natural solution to get rid of surface stains, you can get tips in this section. There are many natural remedies that can help you whiten your teeth. For example, you can turn to activated charcoal, strawberries, apple cider vinegar or matcha to restore the colour of your teeth. Matcha is known for its health benefits in the mouth. Read our article on matcha and oral health for more information. Another natural method is oil pulling with coconut oil, which can have a gentle whitening effect and removes tooth stains. There are also home remedies like baking soda that can be used as a teeth whitener. Special toothpastes, such as our Whitening Toothpastes for whitening teeth are also helpful. With our Whitening Toothpastes, the tooth substance is not attacked, but on the contrary, protected.

At ALPINE WHITE, we offer you tooth-friendly bleaching. Our in-office bleaching is based on our patent-pending bleaching gel which gently whitens your teeth and removes yellow stains.

Another popular option is veneers, wafer-thin shells of ceramic or plastic that are applied to the front of the teeth to improve the appearance and hide stubborn discolouration. 

At-home Bleaching

We also offer a range of whitening products, such as our Whitening Strips, which you can use as a home treatment. These products not only help you colour your teeth but also protect you from tooth decay and gingivitis. Our Whitening Toothpastes contain fluoride to help you get rid of pigment.

The pros and cons of professional teeth whitening treatments

A pearly white Hollywood smile sounds just too tempting, doesn't it? But before you run out and book such a treatment, you should be aware of the pros and cons. The advantages are obvious - you get a whiter smile and naturally feel much more confident. On the other hand, there are also some disadvantages that you should be aware of. For one thing, the treatment can be quite expensive, and for another, there can be sensitivity or pain around the mouth. In addition, there is a risk of tartar build-up with some treatments. However, it is important to note that suitable whitening agents can be used to remove this tartar and whiten healthy teeth at the same time.

Tips for maintaining white teeth after treatment

Who doesn't dream of radiant white teeth? But after a bleaching or professional teeth cleaning, the question often arises: How can I keep my teeth white for as long as possible and protect my tooth enamel and gums? First of all, you should pay attention to regular and thorough oral hygiene. This means not only brushing your teeth every day, but also flossing and using mouthwash. In addition, it is advisable to consume strongly staining foods such as red wine, coffee or tea only in masses in order to protect the tooth surface from stubborn discolouration. If you still don't want to give up these stimulants, you can rinse your mouth with water or chew gum after consumption to clean your teeth. In addition, it is important to attend regular check-ups at the ALPINE WHITE Studio in order to detect and treat discolouration, caries and also the general well-being of your dental health at an early stage. 

Also use our products, which serve as a protective layer and care for your teeth at the same time.

With these tips, there's nothing standing in the way of a bright white smile, healthy tooth enamel and healthy gums!

Alternatives to professional teeth whitening treatments

Finally, it's important to know what yellow teeth are and how to prevent them. Luckily, there are many natural remedies, such as home remedy treatments, that can help you whiten your smile without spending a fortune. It's also important that you read up on the different teeth whitening methods, as each has its own advantages and disadvantages. 

If you decide to have your teeth professionally whitened, make sure you take time to care for them after the treatment is complete. Make sure you maintain a regular dental hygiene routine, use toothpaste that is specially formulated for whitening, and pay attention to the condition of your enamel and gums. Remember that removing plaque and maintaining the health of dentin and dentin are just as important as striving for a bright smile.
