Are slightly yellow teeth normal?

I am a 20 year old male and my teeth are slightly yellow. I brush them 3 times a day and floss. Why is this?

Yes it is but it is the easiest color to bleach. Don't waste your time on "whitening toothpaste" initially. Get a dentist to do your bleaching then use your whitening TP to help keep your teeth white
Tooth color is genetic, but you can use a whitening toothpaste, like colgate optic white or crest whitening strips
Yes. Look at other people's teeth, they are all more than slightly yellow. If yours are slightly, then you have white teeth.
The yellow that you notice is the dentin or second layer of the teeth that shows through the enamel (first layer). If you would like to brighten the teeth, then whitening products can be used. However, whitening products can also cause sensitivity.
