Hello, yellow teeth could be because of deposits on your teeth or food lodged in your teeth. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. Scaling is a painless and a non-invasive procedure. Brush twice daily, maintain proper brushing technique, floss regularly and rinse after every meal. Visit dentist every 6 months.
Sir, yellow spots on your teeth are probably calculus. That is food particles and debris that have accumulated on your teeth for a long time and become hard. They cannot be removed by brushing. You must visit a dentist and get a scaling done (cleaning). After that you should maintain good oral hygiene and brush twice day, wash your mouth after every meal and prevent food particles from getting collected between your teeth. Then you can go for a check up every six months to make sure that they have not formed again.

The Yellow spots are probably due to fluorosis or Plaque accumulation. Visit a Dentist for cleaning and if they are due to fluorosis, they can be bleached.
Dear Lybrate user, the yellow spots could be hardened plaque deposits or inherent discoloration of your teeth. These won't come out with brushing alone. Visit your local dentist for a clinical check up and get a professional cleaning/scaling done. The dentist will guide your further.
