Cause of discoloration – Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc.) genetics. You may have a yellow bacterial film called “plaque” that occurs naturally in mouth that can build up. if not removed it hardens to form tartar.

Over the time, enamel can develop surface stains caused by your daily diet. However, some people also have teeth that naturally appear yellow, regardless of what they eat or drink. This is because the layer of dentin underneath the enamel naturally looks a little yellowish. But even if you have a naturally yellow teeth, nowadays a lot of options are available that can mask the yellow colour of your teeth. For that you need to seek professional help. I would suggest you, to pay a visit to your nearest dentist, so that he can examine and then lay out all the treatment modalities that are available and can be done to get you a perfect set of white teeth.

Hello lybrate-user, teeth whitening is not a permanent procedure, but a semi permanent one. Effects depend on diet (turmeric and colas are to be avoided) and maintenance of teeth. Laminates are a permanent solution. To change both colour and shape see your smile, do you want to change the shape of your tooth, or its just the color. And then take a call if its only the shade of the tooth, go for whitening.

Hello lybrate-user the yellow colour of our teeth depends on our skin tone too. With age also our teeth get yellow colour due to the deposition of enamel; which is normal. If the function of the teeth are not affected and they are not giving your smile an ugly look. In that case you should just bear with them.

How To Keep Teeth White After Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Many people turn to teeth whitening treatments to achieve a whiter smile either professionally or in the comfort of their own homes. While the treatment itself is crucial to get the result you dream of, what you do afterwards is equally important to keep your teeth white.

Foods to avoid after teeth whitening treatment
Going through the procedure will cost you money, so you would want to make sure the stunning result will last a long time. The first 48 hours after the treatment is critical. So you need to be more aware of your food intake as there are certain types of food that discolour your teeth. Avoid them during this time.

These include but are not limited to the following:

  • tea and coffee. These brews can stain your teeth instantly
  • dark-coloured sauces. Avoid red pasta sauce, soy sauce, barbecue sauce
  • fruit juice.
  • dark chocolate. This contains caffeine and thus could stain your teeth
  • acidic food. Lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits should be avoided. These are acidic or sour foods can weaken your enamel

As a general rule of thumb, don't take any food or drink that will stain a white shirt for 48 hours after teeth whitening.
If you must insist on drinking coffee or soda or other dark-coloured drinks, just use a straw instead of sipping directly from your mug. By using a straw, the liquid will not come in contact with your teeth.
So what's safe to eat after teeth whitening procedure-

  • white-coloured vegetables
  • white meat
  • colourless beverages
  • non-acidic fruits
  • Teeth whitening aftercare: observe proper oral hygiene

For the best results, try to do the following tasks as often as you can:

  • brush your teeth at least twice every day.
  • floss at least once a day to help remove any plaque that builds up over time.
  • rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash at least once every day. This too will help kill the types of bacteria that cause plaque build-up.
  • consider using a whitening paste at least once or twice a week. This will act as a type of basic touch-up, allowing you to remove any surface stains that have built up over time, and it will also go a long way towards preventing discolouration.
  • for the rest of the times that you brush your teeth, use regular toothpaste.
  • Consider touch-up treatments
  • Depending on the type of teeth whitening treatments that you've used, along with your general diet and lifestyle, the results you see aren't going to last forever.
  • You may need to consider touch-up treatments every six months or so for possibly as long as two years even in the case of professional treatment.
  • Sometimes touch-ups may be necessary what you eat or drink are going to chip away at those results. A touch-up will restore that natural shine to your smile.
  • Visit your dentist regularly
  • Perhaps one of the effective ways to deal with teeth whitening aftercare is regularly going to a dentist to have your teeth checked.
  • Seeing a dental care provider isn't something that you should fear or feel embarrassed about. It's an essential part of making sure that the pearly white smile you enjoy today stays that way for a long time.
