Causes of yellowing of the teeth Yellowing of the teeth is a common complaint among dental patients. Not everyone is lucky with a white smile, because enamel by nature can have a yellowish tint. This is not a disease and indicates aesthetic defects that cause some psychological discomfort.

   The main causes of yellow teeth There are three main causes of yellowing of the teeth: external factors, internal factors and aging factors.

If the cause is different for each person, the actions to take will naturally be different. First, let's take a look at each reason.

External factors: foods, beverages, tobacco, etc. such as:

  • Yellowing of the teeth occurs as a result of eating foods that are high in sugar, and sugar is a favorable environment for the development of bacteria. Metabolic products erode tooth enamel. The surface layer of enamel becomes thinner and more transparent, which leads to the appearance of dentin, which has a natural yellow tint.
  • The more sugary foods you eat, the faster your teeth will darken. There are many different types of bacteria that live in the mouth. Active carbohydrates are absorbed from our food and released acid. The enamel is eroded by this acid, after which it becomes thinner, and dentin (the yellow base of the tooth) begins to shine through.
  • Food colourings. Excessive consumption of drinks that contain fixed food colourings. These include: coffee, black tea, cola, brightly colored sweet water and a number of foods that contain food colors that stain the enamel of our teeth. Their pigments penetrate the fine pores of the tooth enamel, staining it in dark colors. Excessive consumption of foods containing food coloring will give your teeth a permanent brown colour.
  • Smoking The components of tobacco smoke build up in the enamel of the teeth and cause darkening of the teeth. The existing toothpastes for smokers are not effective enough, and professional teeth whitening restores the beauty of the smile.
  • Poor oral care Improper oral hygiene can contribute to yellowing of the teeth. The factors of this phenomenon can be reducing the amount of daily dental care, replacing the toothbrush with chewing gum, unsuitable toothpaste, etc.

Internal factors: yellowing due to aging and age, yellowing due to antibiotics, etc.

  • The color of the teeth is affected by the color of the dentin within the enamel that covers the surface of the teeth. The strength of the color of ivory varies from person to person, but its color is "yellow". The color of the teeth varies from person to person because the thickness of the enamel and the color of the dentin varies from person to person.
  • In general, as you get older, your teeth gradually turn yellow. This is because the translucent enamel covering the surface of the tooth gradually wears down and becomes thinner with age, while the dentin inside the tooth gradually thickens. The inevitable reason for the appearance of yellow spots on the teeth is age.

The cause of yellowing teeth 

  • As the enamel layer becomes thinner, the yellowish dentin under it begins to appear. This is why the teeth of an 80-year-old man appear much darker than the teeth of a 20-year-old man.
  • The aging process affects the whole body, including the teeth. Even if you do not smoke, do not drink drinks and products containing coloring elements, with age the enamel will still be thinner and turn yellow.
  • If the tooth turns yellow, and not the entire tooth, then you should immediately consult a dentist, as this may be the first sign of a serious dental disease. Without examination, it is almost impossible to determine the cause of the darkening of the tooth. Tooth decay, poor quality crowns, and natural pollutants can all cause similar effects.
  • Often there is such a thing as dark teeth in a child. In most cases, you do not need to worry about this, because the teeth of infant formula still have time to change. But we highly recommend that you don't let your child's dental problems run their course, as this can have a very negative impact on the formation of permanent teeth.

In addition to aging, there is an internal factor that causes yellowing of the teeth due to "antibiotics".

  • We often take tetracycline antibiotics for acne, eye conditions, or ear diseases. However, if you take this antibiotic for a long time, your teeth will turn brown or show black streaks.
  • Tetracycline, an antibiotic taken in mycoplasma pneumonia, may cause yellowing of the teeth when taken by children until the time their permanent teeth are growing in. If your teeth changed symmetrically, you may have taken tetracycline antibiotics as a child. In this case, there are different treatments depending on the symptoms and purpose, so it is recommended to consult a dentist once.
  • Heredity is also a factor such as hereditary yellowing of the teeth. If the husband and wife naturally have yellow teeth in the family, there is a chance that their child will also have yellow teeth. True, if the baby's milk teeth are yellow, you should not be upset, they will change and, possibly, change their color.

Types of yellowing of the teeth

Types of yellowing of the teeth, located unevenly, especially if the spots are localized in the spaces between the teeth and near the gums. These spots indicate problems with oral hygiene (a light layer of plaque and tartar) or aggressive forms of caries. The solution to the problem is to consult a dentist, treat a dentist and organize daily oral hygiene under the supervision of an adult.

2. Severe yellowing of the teeth Severe yellowing of the teeth since the eruption of the milk teeth may indicate damage to the dentin due to tetracycline or other medicines taken by the mother in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. It is impossible to eliminate such a disease with any bleaching methods. After the eruption of the permanent teeth, veneers can be used.

3. A gradual change in the color of the teeth to yellow according to hygiene standards and the absence of foods with a high level of pigmentation in the diet may indicate a thinning of the enamel due to a lack of minerals. The solution is to consult a dentist, a thorough examination and tests of the level of trace elements and minerals in the body, and then correct them with vitamin and mineral complexes. Strengthening the enamel with mineral varnish will also help restore the whiteness of the teeth.

How to treat yellow teeth medically

Treatment methods for yellow teeth depend on the cause that caused such an aesthetic defect. For example, if teeth yellow due to plaque, smoking or frequent use of strong coffee/tea, performing hygiene in the dentist's chair using airflow technique - sandblasting may be sufficient. Under the pressure of water, soda is applied to the surface of the tooth, which removes soft deposits, that is, plaque. This allows you to return the smile to its natural whiteness, lightening the shade of the enamel layer by two tones.

How to treat yellow teeth medically

If the patient thinks that his teeth are yellow from birth, in this case, a teeth whitening procedure can be recommended. However, it should be noted that this is necessarily preceded by professional oral hygiene, which is performed in the dentist's chair in order to remove soft (plaque) and hard (calculus) dental deposits.

And in dental clinics, the following systems are used for the whitening procedure:


Stunning white.

The maximum enamel lightening that can be achieved through their use is 8 and 9 shades, respectively.

After the whitening procedure, it is recommended to conduct a course of remineralizing treatment with the aim of strengthening the teeth and preventing the development of hypersensitivity. The effect of lightning can be supported by home care, which your doctor will choose for you.

In cases where teeth whitening is ineffective, it is recommended to install veneers or crowns that cover the aesthetic defect.

Thus, yellowing of the teeth is a solvable problem for modern dentistry.

There are many effective ways to remove yellow pigmentation from teeth. This includes all mechanical, chemical and hygienic teeth whitening methods. Each type of whitening has advantages and disadvantages:
1. Airflow is a method of mechanical cleaning of teeth from plaque and tartar. It is used as a professional cleaning method and as a preparatory stage for other clarification procedures. To remove plaque, an aqueous suspension of soda is used, supplied under high pressure. Particles actively destroy all types of plaque and stone, brightening the enamel by 1-2 tones.

2. Ultrasonic cleaning. The procedure refers to the methods of mechanical cleaning of teeth, based on the removal of dirt, plaque and stones with a mixture of water and air. Under the influence of ultrasound, the jet creates a vortex, which leads to a more gentle and effective polishing of the enamel. The method allows you to lighten yellow teeth by 1-3 tones.

3. Office bleaching. A method based on the use of special gels of carbamide or hydrogen in the composition. It is applied to tooth enamel and is activated by ultraviolet light, sometimes with a laser. Under the influence of the light flux, the gel begins to release active oxygen, which penetrates into the enamel and pushes the pigments out. This method allows you to lighten your teeth by 5-10 tones.

4. Chemical bleaching. The method is similar to the office method, but no laser and UV rays are used to activate the gel. Due to the fact that active oxygen penetrates to a shallow depth, this method can be applied to patients with increased sensitivity of the teeth. However, it allows you to lighten the enamel by only 5-7 tones.

5. Photobleaching. A type of in-office whitening that involves the use of a special UV-activated gel. The drug is applied to the enamel and the lamp is directed at it for 7-10 minutes. This procedure allows you to whiten your teeth by 10-12 tones.

6. Laser bleaching. One of the types of office teeth whitening, in which the gel activator is a laser. The procedure takes longer than photobleaching, since each tooth must be lightened separately. This method is suitable for those who want to get a noticeable result the first time - the enamel becomes lighter by 12 tones or more.

The listed methods require subsequent strengthening of the enamel with special means (fluorine varnish). Without it, the result will not last long, and the sensitivity of the teeth will also increase. The fluorescence of enamel and varnish also protects the enamel from deeper staining, because bleaching makes it loose like a sponge.

The above methods do not work in all cases. Therefore, the procedure will be ineffective if:

  • the patient does not pay enough attention to daily oral hygiene;
  • The patient does not agree to reduce exposure to dyes from food and drink or to quit smoking;
  • Enamel discoloration due to tooth fracture, tooth decay, some systemic disease, or age-related tooth thinning.
  • To correct such cases, dentists recommend the use of micro-prostheses with veneers or lumineers.
  • In cases where tooth discoloration is caused by dental disease, intra-canal filtering can be applied. For this procedure, special pastes are used that are placed in the cavity created by the dentist in the tooth. The lotion is closed with a temporary filler until the ivory is lightened to the desired shade. After the desired result is achieved, the tooth is restored with a photographic filling.
