I have a whitish /yellowish thing on my tooth which I recently discovered. Is it because of cavity? If it is what can I do to make it better? I already brush my teeth twice everyday.

It can be deposits which won't clean by normal brushing. Get a scaling and cleaning done from dentist then you can maintain by proper oral hygiene.

Hello, somewhere you are lacking in the brushing technique. Yellowish/whitish thing could be plaque. Visit a dentist get your scaling and polishing done. He/she will teach you the proper maintainance. Brush twice a day. Night brushing is important. Floss regularly, rinse after every meal.
