What causes the Discoloration?
Natural teeth can discolor over time for many reasons. Most adult teeth tend to be a little darker or yellowed due to aging. Surface stains (extrinsic stains) can be caused by tea, coffee, tobacco use, berries, dark sodas, or red wine for example. These stains can be easy to remove with teeth whitening services.
Stains can occur inside the teeth (intrinsic stains) from aging, trauma or injury to the tooth, excessive mineralization, certain illness and taking certain antibiotics during early childhood. These stains may take more time or be more challenging to whiten.
Genetics also plays a role in tooth color just like your natural hair color or your eye color, but in most people, this is a minor contributing factor.
