Hello Lybrate user, first you should go for scaling n polishing, done by doctor. Brush your teeth twice daily. Use mouthwash in the night. If still yellow then you can go for bleaching, composites n veneering also. You can contact me through Lybrate
Excessive whitening exercises r not good c if simple scaling polishing can do the trick
yes it is safe . u can choose any in office teeth whitening. home teeth whitening is not effective.
First get cleaning and polishing of the teeth. If still you feel that they are yellow, you can do teeth whitening / bleaching. It is safe. Now a days even home kits are available. But please do any whitening procedure under dentist supervision. A drawback of this procedure may however be an increase in sensitivity of the teeth.
