As we age, our teeth lose their natural white colour and gradually become pale yellowish in colour.  Different foods like tea, coffee, red wine, etc. also cause stains on the surface of teeth making them discoloured and yellow. Smoking also cause stains on teeth.

The accumulation of tartar or ‘calculus’ in the teeth and gums can also cause teeth discoloration. Intake of certain medications and antibiotics can be a cause of staining under the teeth surface.
