Hi..

It looks like stains..

You need to get scaling and polishing done by a Dentist and it will help in removing yellowness..

Also learn a proper brushing technique from the Dentist and brush teeth twice daily that is in morning and at night..

Please let me know for more queries..

Home remedies advised below.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
You can take half a lemon and put salt on it and rub gently on teeth.
Do it twice a week.

Baking soda can be used as gargles by dissolving in water.

But getting scaling done is a must.
