The yellow color is abnormal tooth color. There are two types of discoloration of teeth like internal and external. Teeth are an important part of our personality. The external discoloration is due to the accumulation of stains while internal discoloration is due to the absorption of stains or pigments into the surface of teeth. Our teeth are a shadow of our traits and habits. Only a person having bright teeth looks descent while smiling. Don’t be embarrassed if you have discolored teeth because it’s a natural process. Because teeth become less white with aging. Different people adopt different methods to reduce the yellowness of the teeth.

There are many ways that help you out to solve this problem. Some of the major and simple tips are explained below:

We should prefer to eat fruits and vegetables with high water content. We all know that raw fruits and vegetables are high in water content. Water in the food particles cleanse the teeth naturally, and also remove bacteria. Watery fruits also increase the productions of saliva. And saliva prevents the teeth from discoloration.

Use Diet with Small Adition Of Calcium
Use a diet with a small addition of calcium. Calcium makes your teeth healthy and strong.
Use Turmeric Powder
We can also use a turmeric powder mask on our teeth’s upper surface to remove stains. Because turmeric has stain removing reagents as a major component of it.
