I brush my teeth a minimum of twice, if not, once a day but my teeth have a yellow look to them. Is there anything I can use at home to help get them white. I have heard that charcoal tooth paste makes teeth white. Is this true or can you recommend something?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I got your chief complaint and your concern is esthetics. Yes, there is kind of toothpaste containing carbon or charcoal which can remove stains. But there are variable opinions regarding their use. I suggest you if you are more concerned about esthetics use alternative toothpaste like Glodent (containing Bromelain, Papain, Flouride, Xylitol) daily for one month. This toothpaste can remove stains and whiten teeth. But so for tooth esthetics is considered, there are treatment modalities available like bleaching, scaling, and polishing. Send your photograph of teeth inside and outside so that I can find a proper cause of discoloration and it can be addressed properly.
