How to get rid of yellow teeth

For many, a bright white smile is a sign of health and attractiveness. White teeth and a radiant smile make us look younger and give us more self-confidence. That's why we love the Hollywood smile, the smile of the stars, with their sparkling white teeth. However, yellow teeth can seriously disrupt this picture and cause discomfort. Here are some important points to combat yellow teeth: In addition, it is, of course, important to understand what causes yellow teeth. If we know the cause, we can take the right measures and get rid of yellow teeth.

Can yellow teeth become white again?

Basically yes. Teeth-whitening methods are extremely versatile but vary in their results. Some have the wow effect; others make us wonder and ask ourselves, “Are your teeth brighter now than before?”

Whitening products, professional bleaching at the dentist, home remedies, changing annoying habits such as smoking, or even changing your diet may be an effective remedy for yellow teeth.

Unfortunately, there are also cases in which no means can help. What you need is a specialist who will work with you to map out an alternative path to white teeth, filter out one of the many dental aesthetic solutions, and define it for you.

But yes, in almost every case, there is a path that leads from yellow teeth to white ones. We'll help you get on the right path and give you a little orientation in the jungle of teeth whitening.

Why are my teeth yellow when I brush them every day?

Sometimes teeth stay yellow even though you brush regularly. This can be due to a variety of reasons, the first being tobacco consumption, but also the consumption of caffeinated drinks or certain foods that cause discoloration.

Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have it in our own hands. When genetic or age-related factors cause yellow teeth, simply brushing your teeth is no longer effective in counteracting the discoloration. Even with professional bleaching, the desired results cannot be achieved in such cases because the discoloration is too deep in the tooth. In these cases, it is advisable to consult a dentist or dental aesthetician to find a suitable solution. If the dentist finds that professional teeth whitening does not produce results, he or she will most likely recommend veneer treatment. The teeth are provided with extremely thin ceramic shells. Not only is the desired tooth color created, but shape defects can also be corrected if necessary.

Best toothpaste for yellow teeth

There are special toothpastes on the market that aim to reduce discoloration and counteract yellow teeth. These toothpastes often contain ingredients, such as abrasives or bleaches, that help remove surface stains. However, keep in mind that they may not be equally effective on all types of stains, and some can even damage sensitive tooth enamel by using too harsh ingredients.

With the Hollywood Smile line, MINT has a toothpaste, a whitening mouthwash, and a polishing paste even against deep-seated discolorations in its portfolio. All MINT Hollywood Smile products gently whiten teeth and are extremely effective. This is achieved through innovative formulations that take tooth whitening to a new level and, in addition to the aesthetic aspect of tooth whitening, pay particular attention to dental health by protecting tooth enamel.

Yellow teeth: causes

Yellow teeth can be attributed to various factors. The main causes include superficial discoloration caused by the consumption of certain drinks and foods, such as coffee, tea, or red wine, as well as smoking. Natural aging processes can weaken tooth enamel and expose the dentin underneath, which is more yellowish. Illnesses, taking antibiotics in childhood, during tooth growth, and inadequate oral hygiene also promote yellow discoloration.

It should be emphasized that the specific causes of yellow teeth vary from person to person. Effective treatment requires a differentiated approach, depending on the cause of the discoloration. Professional dental cleanings and whitening procedures are options to remove superficial stains, while deeper stains may require other treatments. If you are unsure, we recommend consulting a dentist to determine the best tailored solution for your individual needs.

Causes at a glance

  • The natural aging process
  • Consumption of caffeinated drinks
  • Tobacco use
  • Eating certain foods, such as red wine and dark berries
  • Dental trauma
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Taking medication
  • Genetic predisposition

Yellow teeth due to vitamin deficiency

A deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals in the body can lead to yellowing of the teeth. In particular, a lack of vitamins such as vitamin C or iron can affect the health of your teeth. A balanced diet and, if necessary, taking nutritional supplements can help to avoid deficiency symptoms. If you suspect you have a vitamin deficiency, ask your family doctor to get a blood test to confirm this.

Brush your yellow teeth white again

Although brushing plays an important role in dental care, excessive or incorrect brushing can damage tooth enamel and increase yellowing. Therefore, it is advisable to use gentle brushing techniques and toothpastes that are not too abrasive to clean the teeth without damaging the enamel.

To do this, use a toothbrush with medium-hard bristles and gently stroke down or up from the gum line. The cleanliness of your teeth does not depend on the pressure exerted. A toothpaste that works with an extremely low RDA value (less abrasive), which means it protects tooth enamel while still thoroughly cleaning your teeth and removing discoloration, is the MINT Hollywood Smile toothpaste.

Turmeric for yellow teeth

There are some claims that turmeric can whiten yellow teeth, but there is a lack of comprehensive scientific evidence confirming this effect. Turmeric has some natural properties that may act as a bleaching agent, but it has not been well researched, and its effectiveness as a teeth whitener has not been scientifically proven. We recommend using proven methods and recommendations from dentists when whitening your teeth.

Yellow teeth in children: home remedies

Yellow teeth in children can have various causes. Some reasons are:


Nutrition plays a crucial role, especially in childhood. This is where the foundation for later eating behavior is laid. It is therefore important to be careful not to give children soft drinks such as cola and the like. This not only damages the teeth and tooth color but also has a negative impact on children's health in general.

Oral hygiene

Poor dental hygiene can lead to plaque buildup and discoloration. Just like diet, tooth-brushing behavior is established in childhood. We parents set an example, and it is essential. It is important to ensure that your teeth are cleaned regularly and thoroughly. Dear parents, take your time. Your children will thank you. Making brushing your teeth a beauty ritual really helps our children develop proper awareness of dental care.


Genetic predisposition plays a role in the color of teeth. In some children, a genetic predisposition may result in a yellower tooth enamel color that is independent of oral hygiene. This natural pigmentation can result in slightly yellowing teeth without being a sign of dental problems. However, regular care and dental hygiene are important to maintain overall dental health.


Certain medications can stain teeth, especially if taken during childhood. These can be, for example, antibiotics such as tetracyclines or doxycyclines.

trauma or illness

Injuries, infections, or illnesses during tooth development can cause discoloration. In these cases, the treating dentist will advise you and show you possible treatment options.

Parents may be looking for home remedies to help with their children's yellow teeth. The best measures are a healthy diet, regular dental care, and visiting the dentist to prevent discoloration. It is important to speak to a dentist before using home remedies to ensure they are safe and effective. Invest more in your children's dental care. An efficient toothpaste can move mountains.

Conclusion on the topic: How to get rid of yellow teeth

There are various methods to treat yellow teeth, such as special toothpastes or professional whitening procedures. However, it is important to know the causes of the discoloration and address them if necessary. Before using whitening products, it is advisable to seek professional advice in order to find the most appropriate treatment and minimize possible risks. Ultimately, the choice of treatment method should be individually tailored and made in consultation with a dentist.

Good to know—what is PAP actually?

PAP technology is brand new from Japan and Australia, where it has already revolutionized bleaching and taken teeth whitening to a whole new level.

PAP breaks down the color molecules on the tooth and neutralizes them without releasing oxygen, whitening teeth without causing sensitivity. In contrast to conventional bleaching procedures, PAP achieves significantly stronger whitening effects and does not affect tooth enamel or gums in any way. This should be particularly pleasing to those of you who are bothered by painfully sensitive teeth or irritated gums.
