How to remove yellow-brown stains from teeth....

Cleaning with Hygienist
A clean with a Hygienist is the best place to start and will make your teeth feel different if you have never been to one before.
With more regular visits you will see that your gun health improves.
Without a better photo I can not suggest more than that, other than to see a dentist to get a full treatment plan once your gum tissues are all healthy.

Removal of Yellow Brown Spots on my front teeth
I am so sorry about the discoloration of your teeth, but it a common problem. Since the surface appears to be brown and mottled, this could be a sign that your teeth were exposed to too much fluoride when they were just developing. This is called fluorosis an is common among children. I would have my teeth cleaned professionally and also have some of the stains and pits removed by microabrasion. It will smooth the teeth, creating a nicer feel and look and then I would have some whitening done.

your friends don't know what their talking about.... Get a good cleaning first. You can also ask your dentist for a product called Prevident, requires a prescription but very effective at reducing enamel decalcification

How can I clean the yellow brown spots from my teeth?
Cleaning your teeth will make your gums and bone supporting your teeth healthier, as right now you have gingivitis, and if not treated you will find that your gum infection will progressively get worse...and then you will find out about loose teeth that you have caused based on your neglect. Get them cleaned on a regular basis and floss daily and brush your teeth at least three times a day for at least 2-3 minutes each time.
Regarding the yellow browns spots, they may be a permanent discoloration that possibly could be improved by professional teeth bleaching (i.e. having your dentist do the bleaching, NOT getting over the counter bleaching products), or they might be treated with direct composite fillings or even porcelain veneers.
