Causes of Discolored Teeth in Rogers, AR

Discolored teeth are one of the dental concerns that Dr. Heather Adams can treat. Treatment for whitening your teeth will depend on the cause of the tooth discoloration. Many factors can cause discolored teeth. Yellow teeth are common as patients age and lose natural tooth enamel. Smoking or consuming dark-colored beverages such as red wine and coffee can stain teeth.

Dental injuries may cause dark brown or black spots on the teeth. An overexposure to fluoride during tooth development can create bright white spots on teeth. If you seek a brighter, whiter smile, Dr. Adams can help determine which whitening option will meet your personal cosmetic goals.

She may recommend teeth whitening for surface stains. However, if you have a dental injury or deep tooth stains, cosmetic and restorative treatments can help.

Your Options for a Whiter, Brighter Smile

If you have tried store-bought teeth whitening strips or toothpaste without results, it’s time for professional treatment. Store-bought whitening kits or treatments are often not effective at removing deep stains. The active ingredients in these treatments are often insufficient to whiten teeth.

Alternatively, a professional teeth whitening treatment may treat tooth discoloration from diet, lifestyle habits, smoking, or aging. Using the latest whitening technology, Dr. Adams helps patients whiten their teeth up to 8 shades in one sitting. Her in-office teeth whitening treatment uses whitening gel with high percentages of active ingredients. Ingredients like hydrogen peroxide enter teeth and lift years of stains.

Dr. Adams may recommend a take-home whitening kit for patients looking for a more natural and gradual solution. Take-home whitening kits use high-quality, safe, and effective whitening gels as in-office treatments. However, take-home treatment slowly whitens teeth over several days or weeks. Patients will receive custom-fit trays that will evenly apply the whitening gel to the surface of the teeth.

Restorative and Cosmetic Treatment

Stains caused by medications, injury, or fluoride may resist whitening gels. We can address this type of stain using more advanced cosmetic treatment options such as:

  1. A Custom Dental Veneer: Porcelain veneers are versatile restorations that can address deep stains on teeth. Veneers use tooth-colored shells that we bond to the front of teeth. Dental veneers can cover all of the teeth that show when patients smile. We can hide the appearance of a “black” tooth by covering it up with this cosmetic dental treatment.
  2. Tooth Bonding: This treatment provides very similar results to porcelain veneers. Bonding is more of a temporary treatment but can also address tooth discoloration. Dental bonding uses a flexible material we sculpt onto teeth. Then, we harden the bonding material with a light. Patients with single discolored teeth in the front of their smile benefit from bonding.
  3. Dental Crown: Tooth crowns can repair and restore yellow and dark teeth that do not respond to traditional teeth whitening procedures. Crowns fully cover teeth like caps. Like veneers or bonding treatment, we color-match crowns to brighten teeth. Patients with severe tooth damage and discoloration benefit from crowns.

Yellow Teeth FAQs

What are the most common causes of yellow teeth?

The most common causes of yellowed and discolored teeth are:

  • Drinks like coffee, tea, and wine
  • Smoking, vaping, and using tobacco products
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Aging
  • Natural tooth wear
  • Dental injuries
  • Medications and medical conditions
  • Too much exposure to fluoride

Professional whitening treatment can brighten your smile regardless of the cause of your yellowed teeth.

What are my options if my teeth whitening treatment fails?

If you have tried a teeth whitening treatment and your teeth are still dull and yellow afterward, you still have options. We offer several treatments that will disguise yellow teeth more permanently.

Dental veneers, dental crowns, and tooth bonding are all options we can discuss at your consultation. Each one has many pros and cons. However, our dental staff will help you choose the best option.

Does smoking cause my teeth to turn yellow?

Yes, smoking cigarettes or vaping will cause your teeth to turn yellow. The nicotine and tar each cigarette contains will slowly change the color of your teeth over time. The best way to prevent this is to quit smoking.

Also, you can help maintain the appearance of your teeth by visiting the dentist every six months. We offer regular teeth cleanings at these visits. Maintain proper oral hygiene at home by brushing and flossing. Use mouthwash regularly to help prevent smokers’ teeth.

Why are my teeth yellow even if I brush them every day?

Many external stains will turn your teeth yellow even though you brush your teeth regularly. These include coffee, tea, wine, and smoking. Consuming these things and simply aging will make your teeth dull and yellow.

Teeth whitening treatment can brighten your smile if you have yellow teeth. You may need to avoid smoking and foods and drinks that stain your teeth to keep your teeth white after treatment.
