Do My Teeth Look Yellow?

Posted in Teeth Whitening

Have you ever wondered what your teeth really looked like, but were too embarrassed to ask a loved one or even your dentist? Are they on the verge of being slightly darker than you want them to be – and you wonder just what options there are to change that? If so, you’re not alone.

Many people are too embarrassed to ask, but we want to know! The truth is, your dental team is more than willing to discuss the topic with you if and when you want to bring it up.

It’s easy as posing a question like:

“Do you think I would make a good candidate for teeth whitening?”

“How white do you think I could get my teeth if I were to lighten them?”

“Should I whiten my teeth?”

These simple questions are a great way to bring up the touchy topic of teeth whitening. In most cases your dentist or hygienist will give you a good idea as to what type of results you can expect to see, factors to keep in mind, and even show you what your natural color looks like on the shade guide. Look at the shade up against the others and see if it’s something that you are happy with. If you would like to go up a few shades or more, then whitening is most likely the best option.

Large majorities of people feel that their teeth are yellow, when they actually aren’t. This can make whitening your teeth even more effective, because the already lighter shade of enamel responds more quickly and dramatically to the whitening treatment. Talk to your dentist today!
