Why do teeth get yellow?!
If you're like most people, you probably want your teeth to be as white and shiny as possible, because a white smile can make a big difference in your appearance. Unfortunately, over time, teeth can become stained and yellowed. This is due to a variety of factors, such as drinking coffee or smoking cigarettes. But don't worry! There are 4 things you can do to remove those yellow teeth stains and get your smile looking its best.
1. Use whitening toothpaste - Whitening toothpaste is designed to remove surface stains and can be a great way to brighten your teeth. Just be sure to use it according to the directions on the package.
2. Have your teeth professionally cleaned - Over time, plaque can build up on your teeth, causing them to become yellow. Having your teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist or dental hygienist can help remove this plaque and leave your teeth looking brighter and whiter.
3. Try a whitening gel or strips - You can find whitening gels and strips at most drugstores, or even at your dentist office. These products contain hydrogen peroxide, which helps to bleached stained teeth. Be sure to follow the directions on the package for the best results, but make sure to stay consistent (ie. 3 times a week). If you get teeth sensitivity, try to lower the amount of time or concentration of the whitening gel, and use toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
