Not all teeth are naturally white. If you are satisfied with your teeth go for a happier smile, more dazzling lingerie or anything else that is usually kept inside. BUT if you want whiter, brighter teeth, then here are a few ideas that may help you.
Let’s see teeth for what they are
While it is commonly thought that yellowish teeth are a sign of poor oral hygiene or health it is a fact that not all teeth are white. The outer layer of the tooth we see is enamel. Enamel is naturally white but under it is a yellowish dentin layer. Depending on the thickness of the outer enamel layer, you can see through it and make out the underlying yellowish layer. So when teeth are clean such that there is no stain on the surface, for most people, you can still see the yellow that is inside the tooth. A yellow outlook may actually be normal for you.
