Teeth whitening Sheffield in different ways

Yellow teeth can be embarrassing, and let’s be honest, it’s not very pleasant to look at yellow teeth. Yellow teeth can affect your confidence, your self-esteem and how people look at you. Your teeth are one of the first things people notice when they meet you. If you have a beautiful smile, this can have a positive impact on your life, whereas if your smile is yellow, crooked and misaligned, then this may have negative implications on different parts of your life. If you have yellow teeth or stains on them, speak to our dentist and learn about teeth whitening Sheffield. Sometimes it is simply a matter of improving your dental hygiene by brushing after meals, flossing between your teeth, visiting our dentist more often and undergoing professional cleaning at least once every six months.

Yellow teeth from smoking and drinking

Your lifestyle can have a huge impact on the colour of your teeth; for example, smokers are very highly likely to have yellow, stained teeth due to the nicotine and tar in the tobacco. Nicotine is colourless but can react with oxygen in the air and becomes yellow. Tar seeps into the tooth’s enamel through tiny pores, leaving the teeth brown. Smoking can stain your teeth in a very short time, and after a few years of smoking, your teeth can become brown. It is very important that you maintain good dental hygiene and visit our dentist regularly to make sure that there are no other complications. Professional cleaning with our hygienist regularly will help reduce staining, and teeth whitening will help improve the appearance of your smile further. You need to speak to our dentist about smoking cessation as well because not only does smoking affect the appearance of your teeth and your dental health, but as everyone is aware, smoking can cause fatal illnesses.

Alcohol can also affect the colour of your teeth. Excessive drinking can be detrimental to your dental health and overall well-being. Alcohol can cause demineralisation, meaning the alcohol slowly breaks down the enamel on your teeth, exposing the inner layer known as dentine. Over time, this can lead to tooth decay and yellow teeth. If you drink in moderation, then this should not be an issue; however, it is also important that you continue maintaining good dental hygiene at all times and visit our dentist regularly to make sure that your teeth are healthy and strong and the enamel is intact. If your enamel has been affected, you may wish to speak to our dentist and find out about composite bonding or veneers; these are designed to cover the front surface of teeth completely, prevent further damage to the enamel and improve the appearance of your smile significantly.

For a quick improvement, teeth whitening Sheffield is great, whereas if you are looking for a greater transformation, then you may wish to find out about veneers.
