Teeth with yellow color are usually due to "PLAQUE" collection on the surface of the tooth. at times you can remove this plaque by using proper "Brushing Technique" But at times when your brushing technique is not proper, this plaque get accumulated on the tooth and gets hardened at times and get converted into hard mass, called "Calculus".
So for removal of such yellowish discolorations and collection of plaque or calculus, you can consult your dentist and can ask for "Scaling" treatment, they will clean your teeth with Ultrasonic Scalers.

Regarding Gap [spacing] between teeth, its a common problem and can be corrected easily with "Orthodontic therapy".
they will put braces [brackets/ wire] and will align your teeth to be in good shape.

Yellowish discoloration of teeth could be due to plaque and calculus, beeverages and foods. First get a scaling of your teeth done by a dentist. If the yellowish discoloration persists then you can get bleaching of your teeth done or get ceramic veneers done.The gap between teeth can be corrected by orthodontic therapy.
