Top 5 Home Remedies for Yellow Teeth

Top 5 Home Remedies for Yellow Teeth

1.Baking soda - Baking soda is one of the best ingredients that you can use to get rid of yellow teeth. It will help remove plaque and make your pearly whites shine.

Recipe: Mix a quarter teaspoon of baking soda with a little toothpaste. Brush your teeth with this gritty mixture and rinse with warm water. Use it once or twice a week. Alternatively, you can combine baking soda with lemon juice, white vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide.

You can make a whitening mouthwash by mixing one tablespoon of baking soda and one and a half teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide with one cup of cold water. Rinse with the mouthwash two or three times a day.

You can also scrub your teeth gently for at least two minutes with diluted baking soda. Do this twice in the first week, and then every 15 days. It is essential to note that excess use of baking soda can strip your teeth of its natural enamel.


2. Orange Peel: Cleaning your teeth with the fresh orange peel on a regular basis will reduce the yellow tinge accumulated on your teeth. Rub orange peel over your teeth every night before going to sleep. The vitamin c and calcium in the orange peel will combat the microorganisms throughout the night. Do this for a few weeks and you will notice effective results.

If the fresh orange peel is not available, you can use dried orange peel powder.

3. Strawberries: Strawberries contain a good amount of vitamin c, which helps make your teeth whiter. Grind a few strawberries into a paste. Rub the paste on your teeth gently. If done twice daily for a few weeks, the yellow tinge on your teeth will vanish. 

Another option is to mix the pulp of one strawberry with one-half teaspoon of baking soda and spread the mixture onto your teeth and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse out your mouth and brush your teeth with toothpaste to get rid of any residue.


4. Hydrogen Peroxide: The mild bleaching effect of hydrogen peroxide can help make yellow teeth white again. Rinse and gargle with a mouthwash that has hydrogen peroxide. Make sure not to swallow the hydrogen peroxide. You can also make a paste of baking soda with hydrogen peroxide and gently brush your teeth with it. Later, brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste. Use hydrogen peroxide with extra caution as it can cause irritation of the gums and make your teeth sensitive.

5. Lemon: The bleaching property present in lemons can also help get rid of yellow discoloration. In fact, gargling with lemon juice and scrubbing your teeth with lemon peel is one of the best ways to make your teeth white again. Mix together a few drops of lemon juice and some salt. Apply the mixture on the stained teeth and rub the paste vigorously over your teeth and gums. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse your mouth thoroughly with water. Do this twice daily for about two weeks to get rid of tartar and the yellow tinge.

To get stains removed from teeth take lemon juice in a spoon, dip brush or you can apply with fingertip also, apply over the stained teeth, keep for a minute and the rinse with water. It removes stain and as it contains citric acid/vit c which keeps teeth strong. This procedure should be done twice a week not more. Bad breath is due to digestive problems. Maintain proper bowel habits. Eat more fruits that are sour like tamrind, orange, mango, lemon etc. If still problem persists after 15 days consult for treatment.

A major cause of tooth sensitivity is root exposure. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. 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. Advance procedures can be done with laser

The yellow thing that you see is plaque accumulation, which also leads to bleeding gums and bad breath. You need to visit a dentist and get scaling (cleaning) done. In the mean time you can use a chlorhexidine mouthwash in a aqueous base twice a day.

Tooth looks yellow due to deposits, stains and fluorosis. First do cleaning of teeth (scaling) to remove deposit and stains in teeth. And do bleaching if needed, if fluorosis it need a treatment called dental veneer it can be done by using composit or ceramic.

Cause has to be checked first. It can b bad occlusion or faulty brushing. Massage gums towards the teeth. That means upper arch gums downwards n lower arch gums upwards. With a gum paint or even wdout it can also b done. Rest guidance can b given on meeting.

Please visit your dentist for scaling and root planning as no other remedies or medicine will work until your teeth get clean through machine. And visit as soon as possible because pyorrhea can cause teeth loosening and you can loose your teeth.

Dear, It would be wise to get the tunnel like gap restored to the shape tooth otherwise the space serves as an area of food lodgement and recurrent infection.

I had a filling done in the second pre-molar of the left upper jaw 4 years ago. Just after a year I started to have a sudden severe pain in the tooth. I visited dentist and found theres a cavity in the same tooth. Dentist told me to go for crowning rather than filling again. I ignored that time. Now the filling is gone. And I suffer from gigintivitis nd bad breath due to that tooth. I want to end this up. Should I go for crowning or should I uproot it. What if it caused problem even after crowning. By the way my age is 23. And I smoke regularly.

Hello lybrate-user, sorry to hear that uve been suffering for few years already well the filling which was done is now come off. Your dentist was right in saying there's a decay underneath. This happens in few cases. But what's disturbing is the pain which you had. Just by your words it suggests that could the nerve of the tooth got affected. Visit your dentist asap. He might suggest you for a xray and maybe a root treatment of the tooth if he thinks it's needed and if the decay is deep enough. And further putting a crown only if the destruction has progressed severe. I hope I clarified your question good luck and god bless

Hi, there are various reasons for bleeding gums like poor oral hygiene, vitamin deficiency, physical injury to gums, hormonal changes, medications etc. You have to visit dentist for professional cleaning and check-up to know the exact cause and solution of your problem. Regards
