Hello. The yellow deposit is stains and calculus. Dental calculus is calcified dental plaque, composed primarily of calcium phosphate mineral salts deposited between and within remnants of formerly viable microorganisms. A viable dental plaque covers mineralized calculus deposits. Scaling and polishing is a painless professional teeth cleaning treatment. During Scaling, the hard substance accumulated in the teeth, also called as tartar is removed. Accumulation of tartar/plaque leads to further problems like periodontitis, bleeding gums, loosening of teeth, bad oral hygiene, bad mouth odor and unhealthy gums and teeth. Kindly undergo scaling and polishing to get rid of stains and calculus

The discoloration can be either due to poor oral hygiene or in some cases due to dietary habits too. Oral prophylaxis or scaling helps in getting rid of the deposits on the teeth where as you can also go for bleaching if there is excessive discoloration without any deposits being there on the teeth.

Kindly attach clear photographs of effected tooth. You can go for scaling, polishing and bleaching of tooth. Toothpaste won't make them white alone. Still have questions about it then you can consult me online or offline for better guidance and treatment options.
