Brief Answer:
Depends on the type of colour

Detailed Answer:
Hiii...First of all thank you for approaching us with your query. I read through your query.

I must say that whitening of the teeth(to correct yellow colour) can be done by different methods. But first we must know that how it became yellow. Is it stains which are attached from outside the tooth(extrinsic stains- coffee stains, iron medicine stains, or by plaque) or is it by stains from inside the tooth(intrinsic stains like developmental problems). The extrinsic stains can be removed by professional cleaning of the teeth(scaling). If intrinsic stains means it has to be done by bleaching of the teeth. So in order to reach a proper diagnosis and treatment method i need to have a clear clinical photograph of your teeth. Please upload the picture so that I can tell you more clearly about what has to be done.

Hope you understood what I meant.
Thankyou and have a healthy day.
