I do not think any home remedy will work nut yes you can get at home bleach or in office bleach done by your dentist. But mind you the treatment is not a permanent it may last for year or two. Then you will have to get bleaching done again.

Yellowish teeth - I have had braces some years ago and my teeth had become yellow post that. I brush properly but don't want to go for scaling as I have heard it damages teeth. Do we have an alternative so that I may get white teeth which may be a Polish or something like that.

Naturally our teeth colour ranges from pearly white to pale yellow so everyone cannot hv white teeth. Get scalling n polishing done by dentist. If u r not happy with ur teeth shade later, u can get bleaching done by dentist which 'll lighten ur teeth by 2-3 shades. Alternatively u can use a teeth whitening toothpaste such as snowdent after scalling. Whitening gels used daily along with customized dental trays provided by dentist r also available in the market. Avoid heavily coloured foods, tea n coffee, cool drinks, smoking n tobacco products as they stain teeth. scalling doesn't damage teeth but cleans teeth surface n is advised to get it done once in a year for all. u hv been misguided.

Hi, you need to get that tooth saved with treatment. Pain in tooth indicates it is infected, please see your dentist as soon as possible. It requires treatment to get away with pain and to save tooth. You can rinse and take painkillers for time being.

If you have got cleaning and polishing done then brush twice a day and use mouthwash regularly, than please take triphala churn at night and aloe Vera gel in morning with warm water to tone up your digestive system and you will be fine.

Ideally you should visit to dentist for cleaning of teeth because mostly bed smell is due to deposits in your mouth. But for now you can use mouthwash after meals. Sometimes bad breath is side effect of some medications also.

My teeth are dirty and kind of yellow, please suggest me how can I clean my teeth?

My teeth are dirty and kind of yellow, please suggest me how can I clean my teeth?
Cause of discoloration ? Smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or capping. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use Snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply SNOWDENT paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min .Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. DENTAL TIPS: - Visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

I wish it does not trouble you in future, if it is healed and there is no infection, you need no action but be careful in case of any problem report to your doctor immediately. Get it checked periodically.

In case of single tooth yellowness, most probable cause is trauma caused loss of vitality of tooth. get this checked by a dentist. if it is non vital tooth,get it treated accordingly

Hi lybrate-user. You have a very genuine and interesting query. You have mentioned 2 problems 1. Space between the canine can be treated by various means. Orthodontics (braces) can be done which wud be the best and ideal way. Or even tooth coloured filling can be done. But considering your age my suggestion wud be to go for braces. 2, second issue was your pale yellow canines. Naturally the canines are the only tooth in the mouth having highest chroma (which means they are naturally yellowish compared to the teeth infront and behind them) so there's nothing to worry about it and none of the tooth pastes will change the colour. Yes it might be bit more yellowish if you compare with your frens. That's the mother natures play. And moreover if your skin complexion is fair, the chances of the canines being yellowish is increasd. If your pupils are brownish them the canines being yellow is higher. So nothing to worry about if. Leave it the way it is. Unless it's very yellow for which I might have to have a look at your pic

Hi sir, my teeth is so sensitive 
how to recover?
A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations (full mouth x-ray) to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (sensodyne tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.
