How do you prevent yellow teeth?
Yes. You can greatly reduce your chances of developing yellow teeth by taking good care of your oral health. That means a combination of at-home dental care and building a great relationship with your dentist.
We recommend daily healthy habits and regular visits to the dentist. For optimum oral health:
- Practice good oral hygiene habits at home including brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day
- Book hygiene visits with an oral hygienist or oral health therapist twice each year
- Book routine exam and x-rays visits with your dentist once each year
It also helps to avoid tobacco use and excess consumption of coffee, tea, fizzy drinks and alcohol. Try switching out some of your daily drinks for water instead.
