Teeth color varies from individual to individual. From creamish to white. Get a routine dental check up to rule out any deposits on teeth which could make teeth appear yellowish. Otherwise I personally suggest focus on hygeine. Brush everyday twice with a soft brush. You can ask the correct brushing technique from your dentist. And not to go for bleaching for cosmetic reasons. Don't worry too much about teeth color being slightly yellow if you don't have any other problems.
