Hi. Good that you use brush daily. Please use it twice. If there is lack of calcium. Your enamel layer over tooth will be weak. AND second layer of tooth is yellowish. In that case you need calcium. But if dirt is extrinsic it can be removed by doctor. Do not worry. Take care.

Good morning lybrate-user. Reason for dirty teeth can be many usually based on Extrinsic or Intrisic stains. If reason is Extrinsic (Improper brushing, Coffee or tea stains, chewing gutkha and all) it can be treated with professional Cleaning (Scaling). If reason is intrinsic than it depends upon the severity of the problem and it can be treated with bleaching (Chemical whitening of the teeth) or masking the tooth/teeth with Veeners.
Get scaling done from a dentist. Start brushing after each meal.
Good evening! Brush your teeth with Oral-B UltraSoft Tooth Brush in circular motion without applying much pressure. Use Cleanodent mouth wash and brush twice a day. USE SNOWDENT TOOTH PASTE and take a small amount and apply it on the teeth and sleep. Get up in the morning and wash it. Brush with the same toothpaste. Thank you!
