Your Teeth - Your Life

If you have yellow teeth you know - it's embarrassing. Every time you open your mouth to smile you're self-conscious, feeling that people see only those ugly yellow stains. If you feel this way, you're not alone.

Psychological Effects

Having yellow teeth changes a person's appearance, and it often causes a drop in self-confidence and damages a person's perception of their own attractiveness. Because poor self-confidence could leak into all areas of life - personal, social, work, school, etc. - stained teeth can actually hold a person back from achieving their full potential!

Physical Effects

Outside of the obvious discoloration of your teeth, other possible physical effects of stained teeth include tooth decay and tooth trauma - both of which can be very serious health problems. Tooth discoloration caused by everyday foods, tobacco, etc. is rarely a risk to your health but if you suspect discoloration due to decay or trauma, please make an appointment with your dentist to take appropriate precautions.
