A Guide To Treating Natural Yellow Teeth


Many people have natural yellow teeth, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Your teeth have a strong outer layer, called enamel, that helps to protect your teeth. However, it is prone to developing surface stains over time from the food and drinks you consume everyday. Some people have natural yellow teeth and it doesn’t matter which foods and drinks they have, or how much they brush their teeth. If you have thinner enamel, you are more likely to have natural yellow teeth. 

However, many people struggle with their natural yellow teeth. White, shiny teeth are considered the ideal look when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, and many people look for ways they can treat their natural yellow teeth. If you’re looking for ways you can improve the look of your smile, here at Beyond Dental, we have you covered. Here is a complete guide to treating natural yellow teeth.

Why Are My Teeth So Naturally Yellow?

There are many reasons why you may have natural yellow teeth, and it doesn’t have to always be poor oral hygiene. You could brush and floss every day, and still have natural yellow teeth. However, some causes of natural yellow teeth include: 

  • Bruxism and grinding of the teeth
  • Smoking, vaping, or chewing tobacco
  • Brushing too vigorously or using a toothbrush with hard bristles
  • Eating and drinking foods that have a high acid content, or have the potential to discolour your teeth. 

Sometimes, taking certain medications can cause your teeth to become discoloured, such as certain antibiotics and antihistamines. Disease and oral trauma can also cause natural yellow teeth. There could be many potential causes to natural yellow teeth, so it’s important to not feel ashamed or shy about coming to your dentist with the issue! Here at Beyond Dental, we are committed to helping our patients achieve the bright smiles they want, including treating their natural yellow teeth. We can aid with everything from teeth stain removal to implanted veneers to improve the look of your smile. 

Is It Normal For Teeth To Yellow With Age?

Yes. It is very common for people to develop natural yellow teeth as they age. This is because as you age, your tooth enamel starts to wear away and reveal the dentin on your teeth, which is yellow in colour. You may notice that as you get older, you may start to develop natural yellow teeth. 

However, you don’t need to put up with it. You don’t need to give up on having the smile that you want! There are many things you can do to prevent your teeth from becoming more yellow, and also treatments to reverse natural yellow teeth. 

What Do I Do If My Teeth Are Naturally Yellow?

Although natural yellow teeth can be caused through genetics, you may need to make certain lifestyle changes in order to reverse this. By incorporating just a few of these things into your routine, you can improve the appearance of your natural yellow teeth. 

  • Stop Smoking. The tar in cigarettes can cause your teeth to become stained and yellow, contributing to the development of natural yellow teeth. Make sure you take the steps to stop smoking, vaping and using tobacco today. 
  • Limit the amount of sugary foods and high acid foods you eat, as this can cause natural yellow teeth to become worse. Fizzy drinks, particularly dark ones and chewy sweets, are some of the worst offenders for making your teeth yellow. 
  • Ensure you’re keeping up with your oral hygiene routine, including brushing, flossing and seeing your dentist regularly. 

These are all useful tools when it comes to preventing natural yellow teeth from worsening. However, here at Beyond Dental, we also provide treatments and advice for reversing the effects of natural yellow teeth. 

If you’re looking for ways to reverse yellow teeth, we have got you covered. 

Can You Reverse Yellow Teeth?

There are many treatments we offer here at Beyond Dental which can help you to reverse natural yellow teeth.

If you’re looking for a treatment for natural yellow teeth, it’s important that you see a professional. Many people wonder if home whitening kits are safe, however, many of them can unfortunately damage the enamel on your teeth. For example, teeth whitening treatments such as activated charcoal can damage the enamel on your teeth, making natural yellow teeth worse over time. If you want to improve the look of your natural yellow teeth, make sure that you see a dentist who can provide treatments that will protect your teeth. 

Here at Beyond Dental, we provide many treatments that can help reverse natural yellow teeth.
