How do I get yellow teeth white again?
It is important in advance that everyone has a different tooth color. So you can't compare yourself to friends, because everyone has different circumstances. To get yellow teeth white again, you need a bleaching kit that works quickly and is not harmful. It must not rub off or damage your tooth enamel. There are many toothpastes that promise exactly that, but are harmful when used daily and contain just as many unnatural ingredients. We recommend the most natural of all variants - Activated carbon powder.
The criteria for healthy teeth include a white, beige to pale yellow tooth color (without any discolouration and with resistant enamel), a pale pink-colored gums and clean interdental spaces. The color of the teeth can differ slightly from person to person because it is determined by the dentin. The dentin makes up the majority of the tooth and encloses the sensitive nerves. Dentin can be beige to yellowish, this color is then negligibly influenced by the tooth enamel, which protects the dentin. The enamel is transparent, but it can break the color of the dentin, making the teeth appear lighter. Yellow, dark teeth are not only unattractive, but are often automatically associated with bad breath and poor general personal hygiene.
How does tooth discoloration occur?
If one can rule out the hereditary predisposition, then the consumption of stimulants such as coffee, tobacco and tea gradually makes the teeth look yellower and less cared for. While this is not unhealthy or dangerous, it is often found unattractive and annoying. Even with red wine, colored deposits appear in the tooth enamel over a longer period of time, which then shimmer through brownish-yellow. When it comes to foods, especially berries and curry, you should make sure that your teeth are cleaned relatively quickly after consumption (about 30 minutes afterwards). Advancing age is also a reason for yellower teeth, as the tooth enamel becomes thinner and the yellowish dentin shows more and more through. Poor hygiene in the mouth area and generally poor dental care can also be a reason for unsightly discoloration. If plaque and food scraps are not thoroughly removed every day, plaque and tartar will develop over time. The active ingredient chlorhexidine should be avoided when rinsing the mouth, as it can cause unsightly, yellow discolouration of teeth and fillings.
Avoid yellow teeth?
In order not to get yellow teeth in the first place, you should pay attention to regular, thorough oral hygiene. A professional teeth cleaning should be carried out by the dentist once or twice a year. The teeth should be brushed twice a day and the use of dental floss is also included before every brushing process. Whether as floss on the roll or as practical floss sticks is up to you. When it comes to choosing a toothpaste, you are now spoiled for choice, but in general it is important not to attack the tooth enamel with aggressive ingredients. Activated charcoal toothpowder is the latest hit in dental care heaven and is also praised by many natural cosmetics lovers. The black tooth powder on the basis of natural bamboo charcoal cleans the tooth gently, but still thoroughly, and creates good breath at the same time!

is one of the most popular soft drinks in the world. What few people know: Cola stains the teeth yellow and also increases the risk of tooth decay.

Yellow teeth - what now?
If you have already noticed a yellowing of the teeth, then the first step should be a visit to the dentist with subsequent professional teeth cleaning (PZR). It is important to rule out periodontal disease and tooth decay before starting to whiten your teeth. Also, if you grind your teeth at night, you should start wearing a plastic splint to protect the enamel and prevent further abrasion. Healthy, strong tooth enamel is the be-all and end-all of a healthy tooth. Unfortunately, this can also be attacked by particularly acidic food and drink. A good toothpaste should strengthen the enamel and remove the discoloration that is already there. Unfortunately, many whitening toothpastes have abrasive, aggressive ingredients that can permanently damage the tooth. Therefore, please do not use them every day. Activated charcoal tooth powder is gentle on the tooth and naturally removes yellowish deposits.
Clean immediately after eating?
Brushing your teeth after every main meal is generally a good idea. But twice a day is completely sufficient with the right technique. However, one should wait a little before reaching for a toothbrush after eating. Many foods contain acids that soften tooth enamel a little. After about 30 minutes, however, it will regenerate and you can then safely brush your teeth.
Activated charcoal powder vs. toothpaste
In recent years the subject of toothpaste has been stirred up and there have even been heated discussions about the often purely chemical components of conventional toothpastes, as they are available in all drug stores and supermarkets. White, grainy, foaming toothpastes that make great promises were suddenly frowned upon, especially since some of their ingredients were even classified as harmful to health! Consequence: The demand for more natural alternatives increased. In addition to organic toothpastes, tooth chalk and tooth powder can now also be found on the shelves. Probably the most exciting tooth powders are those with activated charcoal, which create a dramatic "black out effect" in the mouth when you brush. When you have overcome the first shock in the bathroom mirror, an activated carbon powder is very pleasant and leaves a fresh, clean feeling.
But how do you actually use these new tooth powders?
Tooth powders are generally offered in cans or jars. For hygienic reasons, you shouldn't stick the toothbrush head into all of the powder, but sprinkle a small amount onto the moistened toothbrush using a teaspoon. Then you can brush your teeth as usual. The natural ingredients of the tooth powder gently remove plaque and the activated carbon also has an antibacterial effect on the oral flora. Whether classic or with a fresh mint addition, the charcoal powder is a good choice for anyone who prefers a more natural way of oral hygiene.
Bleaching & whitening
Men and women have been trying to whiten their teeth for centuries. Many rely on methods that in the best case were ineffective, in the worst case even damaged the teeth. Dentists, drugstores and pharmacies nowadays offer a wide range of products with far fewer side effects to fear. Under the label "Bleaching" (from the English to bleach) they conquer the cosmetic market. However, a bit of caution is still required here: with many over-the-counter products, the dosage information is unfortunately often very imprecise and incorrect use can occur which then does not have the desired effect. Universal splint systems with bleach often do not fit properly and cause irritation and inflammation in the soft tissues of the mouth. A medical check-up is essential before starting bleaching. First of all, it must be clarified whether the teeth are healthy enough for such a procedure. If the necks of the teeth are exposed, fillings are defective, if there is tooth decay or periodontal disease, the whitening agents could penetrate the inside of the tooth and cause inflammation. And this can be painful!
Healthy and beautiful teeth for a lifetime
In order to enjoy healthy, attractive teeth into old age, you need daily care, annual dental check-ups and avoid food and luxury foods that could permanently damage your teeth. The foods we eat every day not only affect our general health, but also the appearance and resilience of our teeth. There are a few foods that can neutralize the pH of the mouth and thus support the strength of the teeth. In addition, fluoride can also be absorbed naturally, which can reduce the formation of plaque. Raw carrots, for example, are the ideal snack for healthy teeth. Because of the fibers, they act like a natural toothbrush and scrub plaque off the surface of the tooth, massage the gums and stimulate blood circulation. Vitamins and minerals provide the teeth with everything they need from the inside. In addition, carrots start the flow of saliva that protects the teeth. Fluoride is found in fish and some mineral waters, so it's best to take a look at the label the next time you shop! The mineral hardens the tooth enamel and makes it less vulnerable to acids. It can also be found in green and black tea, but only moderate consumption is recommended here, otherwise discoloration can occur again.
