What stains teeth?

Over time, several different factors and lifestyle habits may result in your teeth becoming stained, discolored, and dulled. The following factors may contribute to tooth discoloration and staining:

  • Smoking and other types of tobacco use
  • Certain drinks, including wine, coffee, soda, and tea
  • Very acidic foods, as well as highly pigmented foods like berries
  • Fluorosis
  • The natural aging process
  • Certain medications and illnesses

Depending on the causes and severity, tooth discoloration may range from simple dulling and yellowing to severe staining and spotting. This can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed about your appearance and may even make you feel reluctant to smile. At Great Grins, we are committed to helping you achieve a beautiful smile you can feel proud to show off and share!
