Try bleaching: Yellow us actually the healthy color if dentin-- the tooth structure under the enamel. If your clean un stained teeth are yellow, you may be a candidate for cosmetic veneers. You should try some teeth bleaching systems first. Ask you dentist about what he offers.

See your dentist: Yellow teeth usually whiten quite well with the bleaching agents currently available. I would check with your dentist first to make sure your teeth are healthy enough for this process. I really would try this route first prior to considering veneers or crowns.

Yellow or teeth?:-): If the stain is on the tooth surface then the stain may be removed with a professional cleaning. If the stain or yellow is inside the tooth ie dentin, then you will require bleaching. You will need to get a routine preventive visit with your dentist to know which is best for you.
