Hello doctor,

I have teeth of yellowish color. How can I whiten it?

#

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It may be due to calculus deposit on the tooth surface. Please visit your dentist for scaling and if you get any further deposits even after scaling, you must go for polishing your tooth to get a white surface.


The Probable causes:

Stains and calculus.

Probable diagnosis:

Oral gingivitis.

Treatment plan:

Oral prophylactic treatment (scaling).

Preventive measures:

1. Use mouthwash.
2. Brush twice a day.
3. Gargle mouth after every meal.
