Yellow teeth can give the wrong impression of who you are and the skills you have. Good oral health and teeth coloring can often predict your success in business and life. While we don't want to focus on the vanity of teeth whitening, these are merely the facts and should be considered.
Whiter teeth can also make you feel and act more confident which can also directly affect how you approach life situations. To get rid of yellow teeth there are a number of different treatments, remedies and at-home procedures that can be used. To decide the one that's right for you, it's important to consider the level of yellow your teeth are and the method of application you are most comfortable with.
For a quick at home remedy, try a whole ripe strawberry mashed with a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Apply it to your teeth with a soft bristle brush and leave for five minutes. After the time is over, brush off the mash with your regular toothbrush and toothpaste. This is not for severely yellow teeth and should not be used more than once a week, as excessive exposure to acid can wear away your irreplaceable enamel.
For more permanent results, talk to a cosmetic dentist about professional whitening. This can be a little more expensive than home treatments and may take several treatments to be fully successful, but is guaranteed to work the best of those with yellow staining and discoloration. Yellow teeth are generally caused by tobacco use and excessive coffee drinking. If you use neither of these, consult with your doctor about a medical problem.
For middle of the road solutions, consider one of the many at-home teeth whitening products available. For yellow teeth we are going to skip straight to more severe treatments, which include trays, kits and lights. These products are designed specifically for those who need a high level of whitening and have a lot of discoloration. The trays work the same as the brush on applications and strips only hold the chemical on your teeth for a longer amount of time, including overnight for the best whitening results. Whitening kits offer a combination of whitening products to be used together to maximize whitening and lights are whitening products similar to those used in a professional setting. These are a little more costly and you will need assistance to perform the treatments, but offer the best results against yellow teeth. When combating yellow teeth, take the time to do the research to best find the whitening product for your situation. Also, consider changing the habits that may be causing your teeth to yellow to avoid further yellowing in the future.
