Salam and a nice day for you!
OR YELLOW TEETH?
It is now known that lots of people are demanding upon teeth whitening procedure. And in the advertisement on television alone, loads of teeth whitening products are shown every single day. In your point of view, white teeth are nice to see. Indeed they really are.
However, there are still some things you should know about your teeth color.
According to Professor Al-Bazirgan from Kulliyyah of Dentistry, International Islamic University Malaysia, it is not that the teeth color itself is white/yellow. It contrasts with the skin color. If one's skin is dark. So the teeth appear white. And vice versa for the white skin. This is unavoidable. If you have fair skin and yellow teeth, be grateful with it.
Now you judge: Whose teeth appear more prominent in term of shade?
Another cause to teeth shade difference is the translucency of enamel. Enamel is the outermost layer of a tooth. It is usually translucent. Underlying the enamel is the dentin. Dentin is yellow in color. Therefore, you can imagine how your teeth become yellow right?

Moreover, aging also plays an important role in giving the teeth their color. Over a long period of time staining agents generally seep in to your teeth giving it a yellowish tinge. Also, the enamel wears down and the natural yellow color of the underlying dentin becomes visible.
And most importantly, your oral care hygiene can also contribute to this matter. Brush your teeth twice a day if you want to get clean and good looking dentition. (And refer to this link for the proper toothbrushing technique)
Watch out for your habits as they may impart the color as well. Smoking as a good example, may cause nicotine deposition on tooth surface and therefore causing discoloration of your teeth. STOP SMOKING NOW!
Tea, coffee, soda and colored food are not to be ignored. Be moderate in whatever food you take. It is not about the color, but it is about health.
AS IN ISLAM, MODERATION IS THE BEST COMPARED TO EXTRAVAGANCE.
Things that you can avoid, try to avoid them - if you want to have white teeth.
