Hi friend, i think you should consult a dentist about this problem since you have mention no matter how many times you brush your teeth, theres still white stuff on them. I would like to ask when was the last time you visited a dentist? do you visit a dentist at least once per six months? if you did not i guess its probably time for you to consult a dentist for checkup. hope that helps~

my son has the same problem also, he always do brush his teeth and there are orange color on his teeth and when he eat, it will darken the stain to his teeth. His teacher in science advises him to put a baking soda on his tooth brush and not a toothpaste so that it will disappear the stain on the teeth, and yes it help a lot to get rid the stain on his teeth.

Ok check your toothbrush are the bristles soft? if they are you need a mediunm to high toothbrush secondly what kind of tooth paste do you use? get a toothpaste with tarter control! And Thirdly I hope you are brushing in circles and also Make sure you use mouth inse even the cheapies!!

maybe it is plaque or tartar? there are lots of toothpastes and other products out now for teeth whitening or cleaning. do it yourself... i prefer to use natural toothpaste, like Tom's of Maine.

yes me too have that problem..we have to check it out with our brush..and also we have to brush our mouth in a right manner..while brushing the sides we have to brush it in a round shape..while brushing the frint teeth we have to brush from up to down..and down to up..this is the correct way to brush..have a nice time
