My teeth are yellow is there anything I can do to make them white? (Photo)

My teeth have been this way since childhood. I am 62 years old now and have tried all kinds of whiteners and nothing has worked. My dentist tells me this is the natural color of my teeth.

There are many whitening products on the market. The product that works best is KOR whitening. It is more expensive than most of the others but it is the most effective whitener available. If this doesn't work for you porcelain veneers are a definite solution. The color can be controlled and made as white as you would like your teeth to be.
