Reasons For Yellow Teeth

Teeth Whitening Marietta GA

How are you making your first impression? Is it with a brilliant white smile, or one that is dingy and dull? Yellow teeth are an aesthetic concern for many people, both old and young. Fortunately, there is an affordable and simple way to correct stained teeth through professional teeth whitening.

Since teeth whitening doesn’t offer a permanent fix, it is worth your while to determine what is causing your yellow teeth in the first place. This can help you avoid future whitening treatments, or at least be able to get a longer return on this cosmetic dentistry investment.

Teeth can stain or give off a yellow hue for a variety of reasons. Ask yourself if any of the following applies to you:

Your Oral Hygiene is Subpar
This is the first place to start if you notice that your teeth look a bit more dingy than normal. When plaque, bacteria and food debris are allowed to accumulate on your tooth surfaces, your smile can begin to look more yellow than white. Maintain a diligent brushing and flossing routine and see your dentist every six months. A clean smile is often a white smile.

Your Dietary Habits Need Attention
A major culprit to discolored teeth can be found in your diet. Are you a frequent coffee drinker? Do you like a daily glass of red wine? There are many beverages and foods that can stain your teeth over time. Try to avoid sodas, sports drinks, red wine, berries and tomato sauce to see if it makes a difference in the color of your smile.

You Have a Tobacco Habit
Smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco can create stubborn stains on your teeth, as well as contribute to gum disease. If you are able to get rid of smoking stains with teeth whitening, consider it a perfect time to quit your harmful habit.

You Are an Aging Adult
Just like many other parts of your body, your teeth are affected by the natural aging process. Over time, the enamel layer of the teeth wears thin. Unfortunately, this allows the more yellow dentin layer to be more visible.

You Have a Genetic Trait for Thick Enamel
You may be able to blame your parents for your yellow teeth. While teeth color is not a direct genetic trait, the thickness of your enamel is. Therefore, if your genetics gave you thinner enamel, you may have to work extra hard to maintain a whiter shade than someone who has thicker enamel.

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we are not only able to remove your tooth stains, but we also help you determine the cause of your yellow teeth. This can help patients adjust their lifestyle habits so that they can retain a whiter, more beautiful smile in the future.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
