That is why regular professional cleanings are necessary and flossing every 24 hours is required to prevent bacterial growth(and odor). Brush the surface of the tongue too! ...Read more

.

Typically : Typically staining of teeth is limited to the outer enamel which lends itself to"whitening" procedures which are variations of bleaching. Superficial stains may also be removed with a dental prophylaxis (cleaning by your hygienist). Beneath the outer layer of enamel of a tooth is a supporting material that is called dentin. Dentin is yellow in color. As we age, or with aggressive brushing, the outer enamel is worn which leads to exposure of this dentin. This will impart a yellow color to the teeth. This condition is not amenable to whitening procedures, instead some form of coverage, such as veneers are required to correct this yellowing. Be advised that the best veneers can also be stained if your are a heavy smoker, tea / coffee drinker or eat pigmented foods. You dentist should be able to recommend the best solution for your situation. ...Read more

What I should use to remove yellowing of teeth even i brush daily but still my one teeth is yellow i wana make it white like other?

That depends: That depends on why the tooth is discolored. If it is just surface stain your dentist may be able to polish it off, or for deeper surface stains, bleach the tooth. If it is because the enamel did not form properly in the first place, or has decalcified you may need a veneer or a porcelain crown to change the color. If it is the result of trauma, you may require root canal treatment as well. ...Read more

Can i remove my deep yellow stained tobacco teeth from just brushing and flossing every day from here on out? Or will the deep yellow ones stay yellow. How long if i can?

The : The chances of you removing that intense stain yourself are slim, but i'm certain that you have a better chance by letting a hygienist carefully polish them out. The bigger issue is what your smoking is doing to your health. I'm sure you weren't looking for a lecture on this but after the stain is removed try to see a "stop smoking" doc to clear your teeth and lungs at the same time. Best of luck! ...Read more
