Teeth are not always pearly white. Tooth enamel can become discoloured if you have an inherited disorder. Tooth enamel may be weaker, too. However, for most people, teeth staining can be minimised.
- Excessive wine, berries and coffee can stain teeth.
- Smoking and use of tobacco can stain teeth brown or yellow.
- Overuse of fluoride as a child can cause chalky white spots on teeth.
If discoloured teeth are affecting your smile, talk to your dentist about brightening techniques.
