You can go for full mouth scaling & cleaning procedure, which will remove the stains from your teeth, if your teeth color is yellow then you will have to undergo teeth bleaching procedure which whitens the teeth, in market also there are certain toothpaste available for teeth whitening by himalaya & colgate you can try them also.

The face that your teeth are yellowing indicates an stringing staining caused mainly due to our Indian foods. Visit a dentist and get a professional cleaning done followed by bleaching if your dentist feels that's the right treatment for you

What you remove during brushing is the plaque which is a soft and sticky layer on the teeth..... once this plaque hardens, it becomes calculus which is seen as a yellowish layer on the teeth and this cannot be removed by brushing but requires professional intervention in the form of the procedure called scaling..... additionally, bleaching can be done to whiten your teeth further.....

Hi...
Tooth discoloration is quite common problem. First of all you need to know whether the stains are intrinsic or extrinsic. Treatment options differ depending on types of stains like if they are extrinsic simple scaling and polishing will be sufficient where as intrinsic stains need some complex treatment.
Thank you.
