Is there any way to make my teeth whiter without using whitening strips? I brush my teeth twice a day every day. Yet my teeth are still stained yellow, they've been like this since I was a little kid. I don't drink coffee ever, and I drink soda and tea on occasion. Any tips?

Try taking vitamin supplements. My teeth were pretty bad for a few years because I had an eating disorder and I had all kinds of deficiencies, but they've really brightened up again now that I'm eating properly again. Maybe it's a deficiency that's causing your problem, too?

i have a similar problem, but try to brush 3-4 times a day, that really helps (also longer than 3 minutes each obviously)

My teeth aren't stained but I use a tooth whitening toothpaste. It's kept them white since I started using it. I'm not sure if it helps remove stains, I think it only helps in keeping your teeth white. No harm in trying it though. I've read a few things about making your own toothpaste with baking soda. Again, not sure if it will work, but no harm in trying.

i hear the baking soda trick is bad for your teeth in long terms

Yes it is as it's an abrasive. I'd suggest using it once or twice to reduce the staining and then use a tooth whitening toothpaste to maintain it.

I'll have to try some stuff. No one says anything to me, and it isn't super noticable, but I'd like to make them whiter. Thanks.
