Who wouldn't love to have those shining and sparkling set of teeth, right? It adds on to make a person appear smart and attractive. But most of us face the problem of having yellow teeth that refrains us from smiling in public.
Teeth may become yellow gradually due to heredity, ageing, excessive consumption of tea, coffee, tobacco, etc., or even due to a poor dental hygiene.

In 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, add 1 teaspoon of water. Brush your teeth with this solution before you normally brush it with a toothpaste.
