Welcome to XXXXXXX

Your teeth can be naturally yellowish, or yellowness can be due to poor oral hygiene or due to your food habits.

The most common cause of yellowish teeth and other tooth problems is poor oral hygiene.

If oral hygiene is not poor, then cause can be color imparting food and beverages consumed by us.

You should brush your teeth after meal and before going to bed.

You can brush your teeth after consuming color imparting substance like tea/coffee and sodas.

You can use tooth whitening toothpastes.

You can chew sugarless whitening gums.

If there is no improvement, please contact a Dentist for in office tooth bleaching. You can discuss about Dental Veneers also with him.
