I have yellow teeth, what to do?
Here is home remedy for brighter teeth--- mix several teaspoons of baking soda with enough fresh lemon juice (or water) to make a paste. Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Put a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply. Leave the paste on for 1 minute, then rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using just water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes. For faster result you can go for teeth bleaching from dentist.

Hello lybrate user mostly pain in teeth is due to cavities. For cavities you have to get it filled first. Sometimes you can confuse with the pain and sensitivity. So you have to check it properly so for that you can visit your dentist.

Bleeding from gums indicates infection. Bad smell comes due to tartar accumulation on teeth, get a cleaning done.

Soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices should be consumed in a limited quantity because they are acidic in nature. Acidic food or drinks often soften the tooth material which leads to the dissolution of minerals into the tooth enamel, resulting in cavities (holes).

The best treatment for you to get a whiter teeth and become disease free is to go for laminates. It is the best treatment for dental fluorosis. But if you have a budget, you can go for crown on your teeth. It will make your teeth stronger and aesthetically beautiful.

Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

Reasons of bad breath in mouth? I am suffering from this, please help me with it.
There are basically two primary reasons for a bad breath. First is if you r suffering from gastritis then there can be bad breath due to that. Secondly if you have any deposits over your teeth or if your gums bleed while brushing and also an unhygienic tongue can too be the one amongst all this. So get a tooth check up done by a dentist n then sort out this if the reason is second one. What the dentist has to do is scaling and followed by polishing n then giving you the oral hygiene instructions hope this will help

If the mouth ulcer is causing a lot of pain, gently rub a small ice cube over the spot or rinse your mouth with ice-cold water. You could also chew on a clove bud (lavang) and direct the juice generated to the area where the ulcer is located. Clove buds are a great ingredient to cure sore throat too. To prevent the ulcerated area from getting infected, make it a point to rinse your mouth with a little salt water. Remember, this won’t make the ulcer disappear, but it can help reduce the pain. Honey is a natural humectant. It helps reduce scarring and hastens the process of new tissue growth. This, along with its anti-microbial effect ensures faster healing of the mouth ulcer. Chew a few leaves of tulsi along with some water about three to four times every day. This will help in getting rid of ulcers faster and also have a preventive action against their recurrence. Applying a little coconut oil directly onto the mouth ulcer or chewing some coconut (fresh or dry) helps reduce pain and inflammation and hence, ulcers heal faster. Mix some sugar to crushed khus-khus seeds and consume this mixture for instant relief from ulcers. You could apply a little ghee directly to the ulcerated area, or drink a glass of buttermilk two or three times every day. Mouth ulcers left untreated generally go away in a week or so; with these home remedies, you can expect faster relief. However, if you notice an ulcer in the mouth that is persistently present although it does not cause you any pain, do not neglect it or try to treat it with home remedies beyond a few days. Make it a point to see a doctor soon because often, a painless mouth ulcer is one of the earliest signs of oral cancer.
