Why is my child’s new teeth yellow?

Around the age of 6-8 years old, children begin the emergence of their front adult teeth into their mouths. It’s not unusual for parents at this stage to ask me “Why is my child’s new teeth yellow”? There are several reasons for this. Most parents think the reason is because the child is not brushing properly. While this may be the case, any build up/stain on the teeth can be removed and the clean tooth underneath can still appear yellow. The biggest reason the front adult teeth appear yellow is because the adjacent baby teeth are whiter. Seems rather silly right? Many parents are surprised to learn that the yellow color of the adult teeth is totally natural and the norm for all people. Once
