Q.

Yellow teeth

My teeth have turned noticably yellow in the past few months. I' ve had no accidents, but did have a baby 18months ago and a bariatric surgery 6 months ago which changed my diet - for the better.

Someone suggested it might be a calcium deficiency from the baby - but I' ve always taken a daily multi-vit.

My dentist (whom I only started using recently) said they' re fine and I can bleach them if I' m that concerned.

But I know, only until a few months ago they were always very white - I' m 32yrs old. What could be the cause? I' d rather treat the problem first than bleaching.

bleaching is the best treatment for yeloowing teeth.
Yellowing is a natural proces of ageing- if your dentist found no other cause, my advice is to do the bleaching
