About This Service

The brown spots you see on your teeth are generally a result of smoking, consuming dark food or drink, or poor oral hygiene.

Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror and wish you could change the colour of your teeth? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one.

Tooth discolouration is most commonly the result of stain accumulation on the inside or outside of the teeth. Over time this may cause teeth to appear yellow or dull/dark. This is a common complaint we see amongst our patients at Studio Smiles.

The good news is that discoloured teeth can, with the right treatment, return to their natural glowing white colour. After restoring the colour of the teeth, it’s important to uncover the cause of the discoloration and address it to prevent the yellowing from recurring.

For many patients, we see that restoring their smile to a healthy white glow brings out their inner confidence. If you’re looking for the best teeth whitening treatment, Studio Smiles is the team for you. Transform your smile. Book an appointment today.

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

There are numerous different things that can cause that yellow tinge on our teeth.

They include:

  • Dark coloured foods and condiments (soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, etc.)
  • Drinking tea, coffee and red wine
  • Sugary foods & drinks
  • Smoking
  • Genetic conditions
  • Internal tooth damage

While we know it can be hard to completely eliminate those food groups, consuming less can make a huge difference. Drinking these staining liquids (such as coffee) through a straw may also help avoid stains.

Can tooth discolouration be reversed?

The good news for you is that tooth discolouration can be corrected and prevented in the future with regular professional cleanings and whitening treatments. If you’re looking to turn those discoloured teeth into pearly whites, Studio Smiles have invested in the latest techniques and technologies to help you become your best self.

What are the brown spots on my teeth?

The brown spots you see on your teeth are generally a result of smoking, consuming dark food or drink, or poor oral hygiene. They may be accompanied by tooth sensitivity, tooth decay, tooth pain, or even just bad breath. Some people have brown spots because they’ve got old fillings, their teeth are stained, or they’ve got chips in their teeth. If you’ve got brown spots on your teeth, it’s important you get them checked out. Leaving any underlying issues unattended can cause further health problems down the line. Book your appointment today, and smile with confidence.

Can you get rid of the brown spots on your teeth?

Brown spots on teeth can be removed. In order to understand what treatment is best for you, we’ll need to get to the root cause of the brown spot. If your brown spot is the result of your diet, we could simply have your teeth cleaned and your stains removed with some polishing paste. If it’s a genetic cause, it could indicate that the tooth is a little weaker (demineralised) in which case we may mask the spot with a filling. If the spot is associated with a previous filling, it may mean the filling is breaking down and requiring replacement. It’ll be best to book an appointment to make sure we know exactly what’s caused it.

Is having yellow teeth a bad thing?

Having yellow teeth is not necessarily a bad thing. If the yellow is due to dietary stains, it is not inherently ‘unhealthy’ for the teeth. With that said, we understand that some patients want to change the colour of their teeth to boost their confidence and feel good, with a brighter and whiter smile – and at Studio Smiles we’re here to help. Ultimately, it all comes down to you and your goals.

What are my treatment options?

If you’re looking for a brighter smile, our teeth whitening options can remove years of stains and give you that fresh look you’ve been wanting.
