How to Whiten Your Yellow Teeth in Less Than 2 Minutes!
Americans spend over $1.4 billion dollars in over-the-counter teeth whitening products every year. “The No. 1 cause of yellow teeth is lifestyle,” said Dr. Justin Philipp of J. Philipp Dentistry in Chandler, Arizona. “Smoking, drinking coffees and teas, chewing tobacco are the worst.”
Dark-colored foods and beverages – colas, red wine, dark sauces and various fruits – grapes, blueberries and pomegranates, also have potential to stain teeth. These items are high in chromogens, pigment-producing substances with a penchant for sticking to tooth enamel (1).
Genetics, age and health can be other causes of yellowing. Poor health can play a large factor in teeth color. Disease can cause yellowing and other abnormalities in teeth, as well.
When brushing twice a day and flossing doesn’t help improve your yellow teeth, it’s time to consider other options.

Baking soda is one of the best ingredients that you can use to get rid of yellow teeth. It will help remove plaque and make your pearly whites shine. The bleaching property present in lemons can also help get rid of yellow discoloration.
Baking Soda and Lemon Juice Paste
- baking soda
- lemon juice or water
- Mix enough fresh lemon juice (or water) with several teaspoons of baking soda to make a paste.
- Wipe your teeth and any extra saliva off of them with a paper towel. Place a good amount of paste onto your toothbrush and apply.
- Leave the paste on for 1 minute. Rinse, so as to avoid the acid effecting enamel. If you are using water you can leave it on for up to 3 minutes.
- Use this paste once or twice a week.
In addition to using this whitening paste, make sure to maintain adequate oral hygiene.
Note: Avoiding smoking, coffee and soda helps prevent yellow teeth, or you can get into the habit of drinking those darker beverages through a straw.
