My teeth are all perfectly straight now but i really need tips for removing yellow stains from my teeth. I always avoid smiling when someone is near me, so they wouldnt see the yellow stains and think i dont brush my teeth.

Hey Zoeyy…unfortunately the ‘yellow’ appearance of teeth is something that happens with age. Usually middle aged and older complain about this appearance. When you are a child/teenager/20’s you have a good coating of enamel on your teeth. this is the outer tooth surface and is very strong. As you get older, this surface thins and the dentine (the structure underneath the enamel) begins to show through. the dentine is naturally yellow in appearance.
Be warned, whitening toothpaste is very abrasive and doesn’t really work for more than a few seconds. Infact, whitening toothpastes work by making the surface of the tooth structure more porous and the whitening effect comes from the way the light shines on the tooth. This effect lasts no more than a minute or two…it is more psychologic that people think their teeth are becoming whiter. If you really want to make your teeth whiter, consider bleaching your teeth. I would get this done professionally. If you go to a dentist, they will make special fitting bleaching trays designed to fit your mouth specifically. this means less swallowing of the bleach used and the trays will cover very little of your gums. the bleach you buy online does not come with these special trays and it does not do your gums any good to be in contact with bleach for a long period of time! Beauty salons do teeth whitening too…but i don’t think they are legally protected if anything goes wrong…but I’m not a beautician, this is just what I’ve been told. Not all dentists agree with teeth bleaching but as long as you are aware it can cause tooth sensitivity and needs to be maintained.

if the yellow stains you speak of are tobacco stains then these can be removed by a scale and polish or air abrasion from your dentist.

Please try not to use this bicarbonate of soda to brush with. Long term use is very detrimental to the tooths enamel (outer layer) and should be avoided. It is good at oxidising stains on the enamel but works in the same way as whitening toothpastes and abrades the tooth surface making it more porous. Always use a fluoride toothpaste.

I recommend Crest WhiteStrips – try eBay for these. I do recommend you use Sensodyne toothpaste for a week before and during your whitening process. The box recommends leaving the strips on morning and night but because my teeth are sensitive I just used them at night. It took a bit longer but I found them really effective.

The whitening toothpastes are a waste of money in my opinion.

Yellow teeth is very common problem which can be because of several reasons such as due to drinking lots of tea, coffee, smoking. You should avoid all these things and brush your teeth properly. you can also try teeth whiteners to make your teeth white.
