Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Using toothpowder is not good for teeth as toothpowder contains a higher amount of abrasives and will abrade your teeth. When teeth get more and more abraded it gets more yellower day by day due to loss of enamel and exposure of dentin, which is more yellowish than enamel.

Colgate toothpaste is enough for normal brushing two times a day, along with scaling every six months if possible.

Slight yellowish teeth are normal.

Do not use mouthwashes and toothpowder and strong toothpaste like Sensodyne or Sensodent.
