Help! My Teeth are Yellow

Nothing squashes your confidence quite like stained teeth, and although it’s a common complaint, it’s one that you likely want to remedy ASAP. Thankfully, you’ve got lots of options when it comes to brightening your smile. Whether you’re interested in professional whitening treatments or even veneers, Dr. Afshin Vahadi and Dr. Vafa Mirshams work with you to help you achieve your dreams of a dazzling smile. 

What causes yellow teeth?

Determining why your teeth are yellow is the first step in transforming your smile from dull to dazzling. Knowing what contributed to the stains can help shape your best treatment plan. 

Common causes of staining include:

A single tooth can also become discolored if the nerves inside your tooth are damaged or die.

Explore your whitening options

Here at our Lone Star Dental Care office in Frisco, we offer in-office whitening treatments, take-home trays, and veneers.

In-office professional whitening treatments

Dr. Vahadi and Dr. Mirshams perform in-office treatments with the Zoom! Teeth Whitening system. Zoom! Teeth Whitening brightens your teeth by up to eight shades in just one visit by combining the power of light energy and a whitening gel.

Take-home whitening treatments

If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, you can choose our custom-designed teeth-whitening kits. Unlike generic, over-the-counter kits, professional-grade whitening kids include professional-strength bleaching gel and customized whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly. Because the trays are molded to fit your teeth, the gel comes into contact with every surface of each tooth, leading to consistent results. 

We provide specific instructions for you, and after 10-14 days, you can bask in your revitalized smile.


Although in-office treatments and take-home trays are both effective, in some cases neither might work for you. Drawing back to the list of potential staining culprits, not all stains respond to whitening gels. If your teeth are permanently stained, you may consider revamping your smile with porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth, and each aspect 一 including the size, shape, and color 一 is completely customizable. This means you can permanently eliminate yellow teeth with veneers.

You might consider veneers if yellow stains are just one item in a list of things you wish to change about your smile. Veneers can correct minor gaps, hide chips, and enhance the shape of your teeth.

Deciding on the right whitening treatment for you

The good news is that you don’t have to pick one of these options on your own. Our team is happy to walk you through all of your options and help you reach your aesthetic goals.
