In few second, the image created by the person, can collapse. Before it was the shadow of our eyes that stood out, today it is the missing tooth, the crowding or the yellow color of our teeth.
Yellow teeth is one of the most common “aesthetic defects” among the population, but also easiest one to solve with a cosmetic dental treatment. Howeverm, why do teeth turn yellow ? Can it be avoided ? How can you get your teeth white again?

We will tell you all about it!

Why do my teeth look yellow?

A poor dental hygiene often leads to yellow enamel, it is not the only reason. There are many other reasons why a person may have yellow teeth.
Here are the most common ones :

• Drink coffee, tea or red wine. If you regularly drink these types of beverages, remember to brush your teeth afterwards to avoid yellow stains on your teeth.
• Eating certain foods that contain very strong pigments can also turn your teeth yellow. Not a matter of not eating these foods (some of them, like berries, are very healthy), but to moderate their consumption and remember to brush your teeth afterwards.
• Being a regular smoker. Tobacco not only harms our health in every way, it also stains enamel.
• Not brushing your teeth regularly. As we mentioned earlier, poor oral hygiene leads to the accumulation of plaque and tartar stains, which damage the gums and make our teeth dirty.

Our teeth also age and gradually become yellowish or grayish. What is worrisome is that this color change occurs early.
If you have yellow teeth, you can be sure that there is always a solution at Rhône Dental Clinic in Geneva.

Solutions for yellow teeth: whitening or veneers?

Teeth whitening is the most common treatment for stained teeth. The results are immediate in one session, experts can lighten teeth up to 8 shades more than other types of whitening. At Rhône Dental Clinic, we always strive for the most natural results. We don’t want you to go from yellow teeth to artificial, shiny white teeth. We study the appearance of your smile in relation to your face to design a smile that enhances your natural beauty.

Although whitening is the most common treatment for yellow teeth bu in some cases we can also use dental veneers. These latter are thin shells that allow us to change the size, color or shape of the teeth to obtain more aesthetic teeth. You are ordered to have this treatment if you have deep stains or if, in addition to yellow teeth, you have a tooth that is fractured, uneven in size, has worn edges or has internal stains.

Do you need to treat your yellow teeth ? During your consultation, your particular situation will be discussed in more detail. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have. If new questions arise after your consultation, please feel free to contact the clinic in Geneva. During the initial examination, we will be able to set up the necessary treatment to get rid of the yellow teeth. Moreover, we can define the treatment plan, the expected duration of the treatment and the approximate cost.
