If your teeth have lost their shine and appear pale and yellow, it may become an embarrassment for you anytime. Your teeth may become yellow due to multiple causes like ageing, hereditary, over consumption of tea and cigarettes and poor dental care. To regain the lost shine of their teeth many people approach dentists for treatments. These treatments may guarantee you results but at the same time burn a hole in your pocket. However, to your rescue there are some home remedies which can give you the desired results without making you shell out even a single penny.
