Hello, yellowish texture could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. You can also go for bleaching or whitening procedures. Ask your dentist about it.

Hello , Thanks for your query first. Your bad breath / yellow teeth may be due to : TARTER: there is a deposition of biofilm on teeth and gum line. when it calcified it called tarter. And the reason of this tarter is lack of oral hygiene / cleaning. That's why it's recommended to go for a dentist to know your oral hygiene status. Dentist will perform scaling / bleaching depends on your dental condition. Then follow some basic ways of whitening teeth as follows... 1. Brush After Drinking or Eating. 2. Use Hydrogen Peroxide: use half water and half hydrogen peroxide, swish around in your mouth for about one minute, and then rinse.  3. Use lemon and orange peel. 4. Use of organic & Healthy Foods. 5. Coconut Oil Pulling: this is tried and tested. Many of my patients are praising the results of oil pulling. Have a great and healthy life ahead 😊 Regards, Dr.  Shalini Tolani (Treated 1200+ Smiles and Journey continues... 😀 )

hello mostly you are having tartar as deposits, so get your teeth cleaned once by dentist. and later you have to improve your brushing technique and maintain it. and do flossing and brushing twice daily. for making it white you can do bleaching,. but learning correct brushing technique is unavoidable.

Hi . i understand your problem. These days it is very common. Yellowish teeth r because of many reason. 1. Too much intake of coffee r tea. 2. Snacking outside food. Artificial colour added to the food to make it look juicy not only stains ur tooth but also harmful for ur overall health. 3. Dentin which is 2nd layer present in the teeth is naturally yellowish when compared to 1st layer enamel.
Next Steps
consult ur dentist. get ur oral prophylaxis done (cleaning). he/ she might advice bleaching if required. But if u tend to switch on the same habit the stains will revert.
Health Tips
avoid having too much of coffee or tea. drink lots of water. brush twice daily. u can use glodent toothpaste to maintain the whiteness
