After months, and months of treatment, finally getting those braces off is a massive relief knowing that your teeth are finally in alignment, and the feeling of freedom with having nothing in your mouth anymore. But some people may notice a change in the color of their teeth after braces treatment.
Why Some People’s Teeth Yellow After Braces
Yellowed teeth after braces removal is a fairly common problem in teen and adolescent patients. Whether they be ceramic or traditional; braces are NOT the source of the staining on your teeth. Poor hygiene during the duration of your braces treatment is. Not brushing every day, and snacking on food that can easily dislodge under your braces, are a couple of the most common perpetrators. Whatever the specific culprit, when the braces come off, your teeth may need some whitening.
