Do Blondes Have Yellower Teeth Than Brunettes?

Someone told me that their dentist told them that their teeth are naturally discolored because she is a natural blonde. Is it true that blondes have natural yellowing of their teeth?

Q:

Someone told me that their dentist told them that their teeth are naturally discolored because she is a natural blonde. Is it true that blondes have a natural yellowing of their teeth?

A: Their teeth do look yellower in contrast with their paler skin and lighter color hair. I discuss this notion in a previous article about how to make your teeth look whiter without actually whitening them (hint: it’s all about contrasting your teeth with a darker color to make them appear whiter!)

Wine and cigarettes age and yellow the teeth, which supports that party image that “blondes have more fun” — but this is a myth.

Some studies (funded by Clairol of course!) indicate that a woman is more confident after she lightens her hair.

I’d venture to say, unofficially from my studies, that blondes and brunettes alike can achieve that same level of confidence by whitening their teeth, not their hair, because the lighter your hair, the yellower your teeth will look in contrast!

So before you reach for the peroxide, get the teeth whitening gel out and whiten your teeth.

When you meet someone new, they will almost always notice a big, healthy smile before they notice your hair. Teeth whitening is also safer and longer lasting (no roots to touch up).

Blondes may have to whiten a bit longer due to the contrast issue I mention above, but in the meantime, maybe they are having more fun!

    I purchased the whitening tray from dentist. This cost over $200.00. I wore the trays and bleach for four weeks, with very little change. When I go back to speak with someone they tell me that natural blonds teeth may not bleach. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. They did not tell me this when I purchased they system. Is their statement true?
