I'm Embarrassed About My Yellow Teeth

I'm Embarrassed About My Yellow Teeth

Do you routinely hide your smile because of yellow teeth? Are you too embarrassed to interact socially because of your smile’s appearance? Teeth whitening is the No. 1 cosmetic procedure requested at the dental office. 

The talented general and cosmetic dentists here at Arya Dental in Fullerton, California, offer superior oral care to help your smile stay healthy and bright.

They can share more about what causes your teeth to turn dull or yellow and how you can better care for them. And they offer the popular and effective Zoom® teeth whitening system in the office and as a convenient take-home kit. 

What makes your teeth yellow?

Pigments from the foods and beverages you consume seep into the pores of your teeth over time, staining them and causing a dull or discolored appearance. This process multiplies as you grow older.

Foods and drinks that are notable culprits for dental staining include: 

Moreover, all carbonated drinks, including sparkling water and clear soda, erode the protective enamel on your teeth, wearing them down and making them more susceptible to decay and staining. 

Using tobacco in any form speeds up the rate of teeth yellowing and staining. If you smoke or use smokeless tobacco, stop altogether. 

Professional-grade teeth whitening

The first step to a whiter and brighter smile is consulting with your dentist at Arya Dental. They can examine your teeth and gums to detect any underlying gum disease or decay signs. These must be addressed first — good oral health is foundational to a beautiful smile. 

Before your dentist recommends Zoom teeth whitening, they make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. Plus, not all stains are treatable with whitening products. 

Our talented cosmetic dentists at Arya Dental use the Zoom teeth whitening system to help our patients get the whitest and brightest smile possible. Benefits include:

Once your dentist determines you’re a good candidate for a teeth whitening treatment, you’re on your way to perfectly white teeth you can proudly show off in every situation.

Make your teeth whitening results last

Your teeth are porous and continue to discolor over time, so any teeth whitening treatment requires touch-up treatments from time to time. Follow these recommendations from our dentists to keep your smile whiter longer:

Say “So long!” to yellow teeth and “Welcome!” to a whiter, brighter smile. Call or use the online booking tool to schedule a dental exam and cleaning with Arya Dental and ask us about teeth whitening treatments to revolutionize your smile and confidence.
