Too much of tea/coffee, sugary food, smoking, not brushing teeth twice a day can lead to tooth discolouration. You can opt for few home remedies to get white teeth: 1. Oil pulling 2. Add strawberries to your diet 3. Use Herbodanti from Dr. Vaidya's instead of a toothpaste 4. Rub your teeth with some fruit peels like banana and orange fruit. 5. Use a mixture of baking soda and lemon, apply on your teeth only once a week Hope this helps!

Teeth may gradually become yellow due to aging, hereditary factors, poor dental hygiene, or excessive consumption of tea, coffee, tobacco and cigarettes.In addition, high doses of antibiotics, climatic conditions, infection and improper metabolism can contribute to discoloring of teeth Home remedies for yellow teeth are - 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. 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. 2. Orange Peel - Cleaning your teeth with 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 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. Lemon - The bleaching property present in lemons can also help get rid of yellow discoloration. 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 5. Salt - Salt is one of the fundamental dental cleansing agents that has been used for ages. It helps replenish lost mineral content in the teeth and helps revive their white color. You can use common salt regularly each morning as a tooth powder instead of toothpaste. Another option is to mix common salt with charcoal and brush your teeth with it regularly.
