Teeth may gradually become yellow due to aging, hereditary factors, poor dental hygiene, or excessive consumption of tea, coffee, tobacco and cigarettes.

In addition, high doses of antibiotics, climatic conditions, infection and improper metabolism can contribute to discoloring of teeth.

Often people seek professional treatment to remove the yellow tinge from their teeth, but such treatments take time and can be expensive.

If you wish to get rid of yellow teeth, you can try some natural remedies. There are many kitchen ingredients that you can use to restore your pearly white smile.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for yellow teeth.

1. Baking Soda

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.

  • Mix a quarter teaspoon of baking soda with a little toothpaste. Brush your teeth with this gritty mixture and rinse with warm water. Use it once or twice a week.
  • Alternatively, you can combine baking soda with lemon juice, white vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide.
  • You can make a whitening mouthwash by mixing one tablespoon of baking soda and one and a half teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide with one cup of cold water. Rinse with the mouthwash two or three times a day.
  • You can also scrub your teeth gently for at least two minutes with diluted baking soda. Do this twice in the first week, and then every 15 days. It is essential to note that excess use of baking soda can strip your teeth of its natural enamel.

2. Orange Peel

Cleaning your teeth with fresh orange peel on a regular basis will reduce the yellow tinge accumulated on your teeth.

  1. Rub orange peel over your teeth every night before going to sleep. The vitamin C and calcium in the orange peel will combat the microorganisms throughout the night.
  2. Do this for a few weeks and you will notice effective results.

If fresh orange peel is not available, you can use dried orange peel powder.

3. Strawberries

Strawberries contain a good amount of vitamin C, which helps make your teeth whiter.

  • Grind a few strawberries into a paste. Rub the paste on your teeth gently. If done twice daily for a few weeks, the yellow tinge on your teeth will vanish.
  • Another option is to mix the pulp of one strawberry with one-half teaspoon of baking soda and spread the mixture onto your teeth and let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse out your mouth and brush your teeth with toothpaste to get rid of any residue.

4. Hydrogen Peroxide

The mild bleaching effect of hydrogen peroxide can help make yellow teeth white again.

  • Rinse and gargle with a mouthwash that has hydrogen peroxide. Make sure not to swallow the hydrogen peroxide.
  • You can also make a paste of baking soda with hydrogen peroxide and gently brush your teeth with it. Later, brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste.

Use hydrogen peroxide with extra caution as it can cause irritation of the gums and make your teeth sensitive.

5. Lemon

The bleaching property present in lemons can also help get rid of yellow discoloration. In fact, gargling with lemon juice and scrubbing your teeth with lemon peel is one of the best ways to make your teeth white again.

  1. Mix together a few drops of lemon juice and some salt.
  2. Apply the mixture on the stained teeth and rub the paste vigorously over your teeth and gums. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.
  3. Do this twice daily for about two weeks to get rid of tartar and the yellow tinge.

6. Salt

Salt is one of the fundamental dental cleansing agents that has been used for ages. It helps replenish lost mineral content in the teeth and helps revive their white color.

  • You can use common salt regularly each morning as a tooth powder instead of toothpaste. Another option is to mix common salt with charcoal and brush your teeth with it regularly.
  • You can also mix common salt with baking soda and gently rub it on your teeth.

Be extra careful using salt as it can cause damage to your gums and tooth enamel if used roughly.

  5. hey i haven’t tried any of these yet but thank god i have found them. i haven’t been able to find any so thank you berry munch XD

  6. Thanks.. i have done rigorous research myself what causes yellow teeth and gums problems, which dentists what they don’t tell about. Main causes will be taking food outside or restaurants which is unhygienic also poor preparation food in the hotels, restaurants. Vomiting is big Sign and any one can notice that your gums severely taken off from the teeth, bleeding gums, and you should notice that your gums have melted whenever the sign of vomiting. I think if you have acidity you need to get rid of that gas, acidity and first need to maintain food habits and strictly diet what need to eat and what not. Yellowish of teeth also dangerous which leads to mouth ulcers, zingivities, periodontical problems. Dentists are fools who never gives the right remedy and the real cause they won’t tell. We had Doctors some 20years back who is specialists for multiple diseases like Family physicians, General Doctor and same doctors use to treat for multiple diseases. But now the trend has changed even the doctors except their specialization they are not aware and they looks patients as a business for them

    1. I hope you still have teeth in 10 years. Not every practicing dental professional treats patients the same. Unfortunately you’ve found some bad ones. You bring up very valid points with GI problems/diet etc. This why the most up to date dentists are practicing total health and wellness. Your body affects your oral cavity and your mouth can affect your body. Medicine is finally recognizing this and it is Wonderful since dental field had known this for decades. Best wishes

        1. Carla is right, Hailey. She’s only trying to make a point. She isn’t “hating”. You shouldn’t even be on here if you’re going to talk like a teen who wants perfect teeth just because she has a date. (Not that you are, but I’m serious) This website did it’s best, and Carla was only sending a warning to the few whose teeth aren’t going to cope well with these ingredients.

  7. hi,I havnt tried the remedies yet,but am glad I know where to get them. my teeths aren’t yellow but I love to smile so getting whiter teeths would be a bonus and make me more comfortable to flash my 32’s to the world,. thank you 🙂

    You have a sweet generous spirit and I know that you know you are blessed by blessing others. Thank you thank you thank you, not only have I gotten such relief from my ailment, my heart is full and my spirit hopeful.

  9. i am sixty years old women. i had very bad yellow teeth that i could not effort to simply make them white. I tried to use herbal. i heard from a friend that lemon zest is good, but i used my mind to make a mixture. Today i have made a paste include, lemon juice lemon zest, ginger, salt, beacon soda( just a bit),and winger and every morning i use this paste instead of my previous regular paste. Every one who see me these days says how much did you pay for whiting of your teeth.

  10. Be sure not to use hydrogen peroxide too often. It can kill certian good bacteria, possibly even making your tounge look blackish.

  11. These suggestions are only addressing the external stains from everyday food/drink/tobacco etc. exposure. As we get older (even into our twenties) our enamel (other most layer of our tooth above gums) becomes more translucent. Due to this the immediate layer underneath called Dentin shows through this translucent enamel. Dentin is a different color all people mostly from light yellow to occasional grey or brownish yellow undertones. Hence the dark yellow appearance. Professional whitening is closely monitored and works by going through enamel and lightening the dentin layer. 99%of these suggestions are not addressing this type of “staining”. Lightening your teeth the due to above will not work with these suggestions. If anyone uses lemons or any other acidic stuff use with caution. Acid on the teeth are number one reason for tooth decay. It breaks down the calcium phosphorous bond of our intact enamel. Causing decalcified/weekend tooth surface leaving it vulnerable to decay Also if there is any current decay that hasn’t been diagnosed it’s a direct line to softer layer underneath called dentin. The end result of acid traveling to nerve of tooth resulting in need for a root canal or extraction. My best advice as a practicing Dental Hygienist of 24 years is to get a dental exam and cleaning. Address your concerns about tooth color issues and get their advice. They will be able to guide you on cause of your darkening teeth. There are several other things that will need to be evaluated such as existing fillings etc. as they will not change when whitening if they match your current tooth shade. You may be surprised a professional cleaning may do the trick. Believe it or not most of us dental professionals do care and want you to have a healthy mouth for your lifetime. And yes I have recommended baking soda to most of my patients due to its basic PH properties. Not only does it help with external stain buildup but also helps neutralize the acidic content of our daily diet. Most everyone would benefit from this little tip. Just sprinkle some baking soda onto toothbrush then apply regular normal toothpaste. Ok ok I’ll get off my dental hygiene soapbox! I’m just really passionate about dental education and have seen toooo many patients unknowingly traumatize their oral cavity.

  12. I’m an occasional smoker and I go to my dentist every three months for cleaning. Cigarettes really make my teeth a little bit yellowish. I know it’s a bit pricier going to the clinic but I really get the results that I wanted. I’ll surely try most of the homemade remedies in the article. Thanks for a great post!

  13. Just one more remedy. In my country, Uganda, charcoal is the best home remedy for white teeth. Get a piece and use it to clean your teeth. U will be amazed by the results

  14. Great Genuine and Selfless Social plus Humanity work being done there by you. Yes all remedies work and are options for those who need an alternate remedy to get working for appropriate results.

    Please do clarify if Margosa is sisterly to Neem and the Hindi word for it is ‘ Kikkar ‘ ?

  16. hey, u got some cool remedies but i havn’t tried yet….m gona try it now… Hope dis works coz i smile alot n it’ll be beta to get whiter teeths!

  17. My grandmother sucked on lemons, ate green apples, brushed her teeth with baking soda and peppermint oil. She passed away near 90 years old with all her teeth and one filling. Even though she loved sweets like vanilla ice cream. Genetics plays a major role in tooth decay. However, my mother has had stronger teeth than myself. Habits make a real difference in prevention and decay. Flossing is good. And I like the water pick. Whatever my grandmother did after eating reduced the acid that damages tooth enamel. You can rely on natural remedies at least toward reducing decay. She did avoid carbonated soft drinks except on occasion she preferred Ginger Ale. And she drank lots of water and milk.

  18. The one thing I learned from my Great Grandmother who lived almost 100 years and my Grandmother near 90 is that they always shopped for clean fresh foods. Bulk and organic. Fresh produce at the height of the season was preferred. Granny Smith Apples were preferred. Strawberries and blueberries were a must have as well as lentils, kidney beans and cabbage. Almonds and other raw nuts. Bitter foods are good as well as sour for teeth. I still see grandma with a lemon or orange rhine. Not sure if she gargeled with Listerine. But it was always available. Longevity and cavity prevention. My friend said that a slice of cheese after eating reduces acid enamel. I suppose anything that reduces acid in your mouth after eating is a good thing.

  19. When it comes to do the orange remedy does the rubbering has to be done with the orange peel surface from the outside or does it have to be done with the inside of the skin surface?

  20. my teeth were never white as snow but ivory-ish….but of late they turned a little yellow–so I started swish swashing with coconut oil for 10 minutes at a time…..WONERFUL results.
