No. Listerine does inhibit the formation of plaque to some degree. However, other things contribute to yellowing or stained teeth that the listerine does not prevent. I suggest more meticulous oral hygiene procedures at home, good eating habits, and consultation with a dentist. A dentist can be more specific for you on what it takes to make your teeth look their best.
No. No, listerine is an antibacterial oral rinse. It will not prevent yellowing or staining of the teeth. To whiten teeth, see your dentist for custom bleaching trays and prescription whitening gel.
LITERINE. No it does not prevent yellow or stain teeth but it prevents gum disease due its antiseptic action and is recommended by densists along with chlorhaxadine which can stain your teeth.
Crest Whitestrips. Crest whitestrips, but there are many limitations and precautions. Your teeth have to be professional cleaned, and you have to make sure that you have no cavities, erosions or gum problems. Note that fillings and crown will not whiten and if you have any, the lightening will not be uniform. Professional take home trays work much better and you should always consult a dentist first.
White strips. Try crest whitestrips.
The best strips are. You cab buy them online or dental offices.
Professional. Professional crest whitening strips available through dentists are a little stronger than over the counter strips. However, if your teeth are very yellow, I recommend that you discuss take home or in office bleaching with your dentist. Strips will not work as well for very yellow teeth.

Why do I have yellow, stained teeth despite brushing and flossing every day? I brush twice a day and floss every night, but I still have yellow teeth from the bottom up. What causes this? .
Genetics. Genetics and age are 2 reasons for the color of your teeth.
As. As dr. Patalowski said, teeth get darker naturally with age. Genetics also plays a major role. Our teeth are naturally darker than what we see in the media. Your teeth might just be "normal". Ask your dentist if your teeth are really as dark as you perceive then to be.
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.
Genetic. If your teeth have always been yellow then it's just how they formed. If they are getting more yellow and you have good oral hygiene it could be due to the long term effects of staining food or drink (like coffee or tea) permeating the enamel and dentin of your teeth. Also age will cause yellowing because the enamel layer will get thinner and the dentin underneath is yellow.
What should I do about yellow, stained teeth due to braces? I'll be getting braces soon, and the teeth around the brackets are not nearly as white as i'd like. If I get my teeth whitened afterwards, won't the whiter parts that were under the brackets also
I. I think you meant to say that you were getting the braces off soon? If so, have a good cleaning and polishing of your teeth. You would be surprised how much superficial stain comes off. Then, if you are still not happy you can have them whitened. In the end the color should be uniform.
Dr.. Dr. Davantzis is right. All we can do now is speculate. Have the braces removed, the teeth cleaned, and then whiten if needed. Best of luck, .
May be. Depend how much damages happened to your enamel, and also how much enamel will be removed during the de-bracketing (removing of your brackets). Have your dentist evaluate your case after ward, may be teeth whitening resolve the issue or some kind of cosmetic veneer restoration.
Bleach first. Once the brackets are bonded on bleach won't penetrate under them. Also, consider getting a sonicare toothbrush to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy while you have your braces.
