The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. 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.

Hi Doctor

I have a pale yellow teeth however I brush it never turns white.Sometime I even have bad breath
Colour of the teeth can be lightened by a process known as tooth bleaching which is normally preceeded by a scaling and oral prophylaxis (gum & tooth cleaning. Bad breath could be as a result of deposotions on the gums and sometimes also because of a coated toungue. Scaling should take care of the problem alongwith use of mouthwash and gum paint if required.

Make sure all of your teeth are properly aligned in your mouth and they are not causing any injury to the cheeks. Check on with your eating habits and lifestyle. Dentist will best guide you for this.

The best option would be extracting the tooth. Please consult the dentist who would check clinically (may advice you x-ray) and give you the best treatment plan.

How to remove stinking on my mouth?

BDS
Dentist

Bad breath can be reduced or prevented if you: practice good oral hygiene. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove food debris and plaque. Don't forget to brush the tongue, too. Replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or after an illness. Use floss or an interdental cleaner to remove food particles and plaque between teeth once a day. See your dentist regularly -- at least twice a year. He or she will conduct an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning and will be able to detect and treat periodontal disease, dry mouth, or other problems that may be the cause of bad mouth odor. Drink lots of water. This will keep your mouth moist. Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) stimulates the production of saliva, which helps wash away food particles and bacteria.

Thanks for your question. 1) bleeding gums for a prolonged time may be due to gum inflammation mainly gingivitis.(depending upon its grade and severity it may be of several types). 2) all we know that if our oral hygiene is poor it may cause infection in our gum and surrounding teeth. Bleeding gum is a infection of gingiva caused by various bacterial species depending upon its severity. 3) oral hygiene maintenance is the 1st line treatment followed by oral prophylaxis (scaling) and regular tooth brushing particularly at night. Use 0.12% chlorhexidine m/w regularly twice a day initially.
