    Teeth Discolouration

    Teeth can become discoloured for a number of reasons, and often the effect is temporary and can be attributed to food or drink, such as coffee, red wine or beetroot. Read more →

    Hi I'm stevie and I'm coming 26, for the past 9 years my teeth are yellow and the enamel is off most my teeth, I used to drink a lot of fizzy drinks when I was in my teens. I always have to fillings done because I'm always breaking and chipping my teeth and I also smoke I know that doesn't help my teeth but I have tried to quit a few times in the past. But I have bad anxiety problems that I just can't socialise with people because I don't want people seeing my teeth, I can't remember when the last time I actually smiled. Because of my teeth I get badly depressed and there days that I don't eat beacuse I scared of breaking my teeth. I have no confidence or self esteemm, when I see people in street they have nice perfect teeth. I hate my teeth and I hate myself for what I have done to them. Can anybody help or give me advice?

    My teeth were yellow too. I brushed every now and then, not on a regular basis as I know I should have, then I tried this: Buy some 'Baking soda' or 'Bicarbonate of soda' NOT Baking Powder(cost about 90p from Tesco's) it is a 'natural earth element' and very safe to use. If you accidentally drink some dont worry, some athletes actually drink it before performing to enhance performance infact. Next, buy some pure (not concentrate) Lemon juice, wet the toothbrush slightly with tap water then dip into soda then add 2-3 drops of lemon juice and it will start to fizz. This reaction lifts stains from teeth. Now, brush teeth (in an up and down motion for a minimum of ten minutes then rinse. You should notice an immediate colour change though dont expect a yellow to pearl white difference just yet, and only use the lemon juice twice a week max! however, use the bicarb of soda every time. I usually take 20 mins a time to brush my teeth twice a day, (10 mins with bicarb and lemon juice and ten mins with a toothpaste dipped in bicarb of soda once after breakast and once after my evening meal. The results of just one week of this will tranform the colour of your teeth and you will be completely encouraged to look after your teeth from there on as the results will impress you so much! Before toothpaste was invented, bicarb of soda and water was the toothpaste of the day, it still is really. Most of the expensive toothpaste's have bicarb in them albeit a small amount and bicarb is the ingredient that the dentist does NOT want you to know about as it puts them out of work. Bicarbonate of Soda also freshens breath and thoroughly neutralize's bacteria. Try it, and tell everyone!

    I wouldn't recommend bicarbonate of soda, particularly if your teeth are already "thin" because bicarb is very abrasive. I certainly couldn't recommend lemon juice, because of its acidity. It sounds like you have some acid erosion, and the yellow colour is from the dentine, which lies under the surface enamel and is naturally yellow. As the enamel thins, the yellow dentine is more visible. Erosion would be made worse by stain removal using these "home made" remedies. Unfortunately there is no DIY response to the problem - you need to see a dentist. In the mean time, avoid acidic food and drink, such as coke (even diet), other fizzy drinks, fruit juice, wine etc

    My teeth is discoloured and need whitening. However, I got 4 false teeth, 2 bridges, 1 crown and 1 stick on tooth. I want to whiten my teeth but these false one would still be yellow. What can I do?

    Hi i'm 17 and I use crest whitestrips classic. They are soooo awesome, even though they taste a bit gross, it's only for 30mins a day and they really work! In about 2-3 weeks or so my teeth were gorgeous and white and it lasts like a year and you can just do one strip occasionly to keep them looking great :D xxx Hope I helped.

    My teeth are in pretty poor shape after my childhood and my reluctance to clean my teeth. I'm living with the consequences now, but thankfully I am brushing my teeth twice a day currently. However, my top 2 teeth have began to rot at the top of the tooth where it meets the gum, and I have had numerous fillings. Is there anything I can do to make the appearance of my teeth better, make the teeth whiter and look more healthy. And also, disguise or fix the rotted area between my top two teeth and my gum.

    The most suitable solution is to have 'composite' restorations placed which are white - this must be done by a dentist and is available on the NHS for anterior teeth. Keep on top of your brushing etc., stop smoking and avoid foods that stain teeth including wine/curry etc.

    the rot at the top of your teeth is because you are not cleaning your teeth properly. i would advise a trip to the dentist to have the rot removed and filling placed, and thena trip to the hygienist for a very strict oral hygiene regime

    I'm 17 and I've had chronic bad breath for 6 years, it could be longer but I was told 6 years ago. When I finally plucked up the courage to visit a GP, I had my tonsils removed, as I had bad tonsil stones. I have also had my wisdom teeth removed. Today I done something which I've never done, I finally told a medical professional I had bad breath, normally I disguise it with other things like a sore throat with the tonsils etc. My dentist said my teeth are perfect and I shouldn't have bad breath?! I really don't know what to do, I was so scared of saying I had bad breath, and when I do I'm not given an answer?! I brush twice a day and floss, scrape my tongue and use mouthwash. No one else in my family suffers from it, my mother has awful yellow and black rotting teeth and she's a heavy smoker and coffee drinker, but I've never smelt bad breath on her. I do get a bright yellow coating on my tongue throughout the day and I feel like I may have post nasal drip. Can anyone please help me, I know this is long but I'm desperate I'm close to suicide. Thank you

    hey its not the answer. you might have gerd or post nasal drip. btw how did you know you have bad breath??

    Get 3% hydrogen peroxide from the grocery store. First scrape your tongue floss and brush teeth. When you brush teeth brush the top of your mouth your gums and your vtongue. After that mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water and rinse and gargle for 45 seconds, spit it out and rinse mouth with water. Do this in the morning and before going to bed.If the source of your bad breath is your mouth or tonsils this will fix it . It works very well.

    I'm 16 and pretty sure I have severe gum disease, I have two very rotten teeth on the right side of my mouth witch I was told needed to be removed quite a while ago but being terrified of dentists I never had the work I needed done, I hadn't been to a dentist for over a year and lately I've been in a lot of pain and nearly all of my teeth (especially three at the bottom front) are loose and sore. Most nights I can't sleep because of the pain and have to take pain relieve.They are not straight and are yellow and completely unhealthy and my gums have been bleeding every time they are simply touched. The pain gets to bad to brush my teeth regularly. Will a dentist sedate me for the work that needs doing? Also would it be an option to have all of my teeth removed and dentures put in?

    Poor u in the same I'm 27 and my gums have got so bad this year and since having my children's I have gum die saw and bone loss loose teeth and can hardly eat take codine lots it rules my life so no how u feel hun x

    Yes, they will sedate you! Depending on how many bottom teeth you have and any infection, you can get either a full bottom denture or a partial denture. Ask about care credit and utilize and get a few estimates. Its embarrasing but you have to do it. Iam inthe process off fixing my bottom teeth after putting in a full top denture and I know that someday I will be able to get everything fixed and attached to my bone in my gums. Show up and be embarrased ...its along process but helpful (and only the dentist has to know about your denture)

    I'm 17 and I've always had really thin enamel/enamel hypoplasia. This has made my teeth really sensitive, but it also makes my teeth look really yellow, apparently due to the dentine under the enamel. About 2 years ago I was put on tetracycline to treat acne, and it's made my teeth even yellower. I've read that both enamel hypoplasia and antibiotics cause intrinsic discolouration, so whitening wouldn't work, and even so my teeth would still be sensitive. Because my teeth have both a cosmetic problem and the sensitivity, would this equate to a 'clinical need' for veneers? I've read everywhere that the NHS will only do veneers if it's for a clinical reason and not cosmetic, so would thin enamel and the sensitivity it causes be classed as a clinical need?

    I'm 13 and I have yellow teeth. I have never smoked and I hate tea and coffee. I don't drink wine either. It's embarrasing. My dad has yellow teeth but he smokes and drinks tea all the time! My mum drinks coffee but has lovely White teeth. I have has no fillings, teeth removed or anything, I go to the dentist every 6 months and brush my teeth 2 times a day and floss once a day. I have had yellow teeth ever since my baby teeth fell out. I don't know what to do? Is there something wrong with me? :(

    Theres nothing wrong! Some people have naturally yellow teeth - if your teeth are the same shade of yellow throughout, then this is just your natural tooth colour. If however they are blotchy in colour; white/yellow pigments. then they are stained - whitening toothpaste should help with staining. Ask your dentist for further information - don't be scared to ask!

    I'm a 14 year old girl and i strongly believe that my teeth are very discoloured. My teeth are a very dark shade of yellow and they are very weak. The front two teeth have yellow stains on the bottom which are very noticable- i get very embarrassed when i talk or when i smile because no one else has teeth like mine. i have had root canal on my front teeth. most of my teeth are still my baby teeth and they are very weak and sensitive- all my teeth are a shade of yellow i dont know why i brush twice a day and i dont eat sugary food or fizzy drinks. i would really like some advise about what to do with my teeth.

    i wud like help with my teeth

    Hi, i am 15 years old and i have had really yellow stained teeth since i can rememeber. i asked my dentist and she said my teeth were completely fine and i should just stay away from all kinds of tooth whitening things, such as toothpaste and mouthwash. i dont understand why she would say this, i know that it will ruin my enamel seeing as though i am young, but i have no confidence on my facial area because of them. i find them really horrible and cant stand to look at my teeth. i brush and clean my teeth twice a day and all, but they are still yellow. i have lowered my coffee intake because i know that can stain your teeth, but nothing has happened. i really would like some help to find a way to make them, go a little bit nicer, than yellow.

    I am 16 years old and my teeth have always been quite yellow. I used to brush my teeth only in the mornings and I used to eat a hell of a lot of sweets and chocolate before I went to bed so I can understand where my fillings came from. But now I have cut a lot back, I NOW brush my teeth twise a day, I use mouth was, I dont smoke any more and I don't drink alchahol and yet my teeth are still quite yellow. What can I do that wont result in having to whiten them?

    Well there is only 1 thing other than whitening it and that is to clean them very, very well twice a day. Use mouth wash, floss and other stuff then you'll just have to wait and see what happens. (p.s. you don't have to and i'm not a pro so i'm not really sure what will happen. Hope this helps :) From Callie.)

    I am a 21 year old male and for the most part, my teeth are quite healthy. I've never had a filling, for example. I brush at least 3 times per day but I just cannot seem to whiten my teeth - they almost permanently seem to be yellow, is there anything I can do? Aside from the yellow colour - I have very good teeth - I'd just like to be able to show them more confidently.

    Adult teeth are naturally less white than baby teeth as they have a different mineral composition. Consult your dentist for further advice.

    I'm 18 and ever since my teeth came through, my two front ones have had huge white dots in the middle.. The rest of my teeth are slightly yellow but they seem much more yellow next to the white. I don't know how to get rid of it.. It's getting me down so much.

    Baby teeth are always a lot whiter than adult teeth as baby teeth have thicker enamel. So there is really no reaon to be concerned just use a fluoride toothpate and motuhwash daily.
