The most common things that cause yellowing of the teeth are sodas, tea, coffee and smoking. If you do any of these you are going to have a higher chance of yellowing. You can chew gum and brush often to help.

Avoid smoking,drinking large amounts of coffee and tea. Be sure to drink plenty of water, especially after consuming dark colored foods. Brush and floss at least twice daily and visit your dentist regularly. There are many whitening gums that can be used during the day to prevent foods from sticking to your teeth, if a toothbrush is not readily available.

Using a soft brush and not using regular toothpaste. Baking soda is a good alternative. Swish your mouth after meals and floss if needed. Also a diet rich in fresh raw fruits and vegetables will also help.
