Tooth color: Aside from extrinsic and intrinsic stains, the other factor can contribute to yellow teeth is genetics. Make sure to visit your dentist for a thorough cleaning and professional in-office teeth whitening for great results.

See hygienist: You might have some calcified plaque on your teeth that can be causing the yellow. You should have your teeth professionally cleaned and also ask your hygienist and dentist about the color of your teeth and what you can do to correct that.
