Hello Doctor,

   I am 18 years old. I brush my teeth twice daily. Even then my teeth are yellow.

   What can I do to make my teeth appear white?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Even after brushing twice daily, if your teeth remain yellow then there are chances of calculus deposits on your teeth.
  • Brushing alone does not remove calculi.
  • A painless dental procedure called scaling has to be done immediately.
  • Scaling is a must for you at this stage because calculi left untreated will cause gum problems

Consult a dentist online to know more about scaling --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dentist
