What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

There can be many causes of discolored or stained teeth, including:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: If patients do not brush or floss properly over time, bacterial buildup and stains left from foods and drinks stay on the teeth.
  • Foods and Drinks: Some foods and beverages contain chromogens, compounds that easily stain the tooth enamel. Berries, tomato sauces, tea, coffee, wine, and other foods and drinks stain the enamel over time. 
  • Tobacco Products: Smoking, vaping, or using other tobacco products can easily yellow or darken teeth. This is because of the nicotine contained in tobacco products. 
  • Genetics: Genetics can play a factor in enamel formation and appearance. If you have thinner tooth enamel, your teeth may be more prone to staining. 

If you experience discolored, darkened, or yellowed tooth enamel, you can discuss your whitening options with Dr. Diacoloukas. He will help you find the right whitening treatment for your needs, whether you have deep tooth stains, tooth sensitivity, or damage in combination with your discolored teeth.

Professional teeth whitening often offers more effective treatment than store-bought options. Store-bought whitening toothpaste, gels, and strips often do not deliver the results patients want. Teeth whitening overseen by a professional dentist can address extrinsic stains or stains that affect the tooth enamel, the outer tooth layer. 

We recommend dental veneers or tooth bonding treatment for patients with intrinsic stains. Intrinsic stains are within the tooth and do not react to whitening treatment. Hits to the teeth, deep tooth stains, or staining accumulated over many years require treatments like veneers or bonding. Dental veneers are thin shells that cover one or all teeth in the smile line. Patients with consistently discolored teeth benefit from veneers if they seek a lasting cosmetic treatment to cover imperfections in their smiles. Tooth bonding treatment is best for patients with single discolored teeth. Bonding also benefits patients if they have sustained a dental injury and experience tooth discoloration. Dental bonding treatment covers damaged and discolored teeth to restore the natural shape and shade of the tooth.
