It is rare that a person is born with teeth that grow in dingy and discolored. Permanent teeth are the perfect color when they first erupt in a child’s mouth. Proper dental care will keep them looking great. Yet, over the years teeth become stained and get darker. There are many elements contributing to the staining of your teeth.
Coffee and tea drinkers should not be surprised at the staining of their teeth. All you need to do is look at how your coffee or tea cup becomes stained over time, even with regular washing. It is a well-known fact that the tar and nicotine from cigarettes cause staining. Dark fruits and berries also add to the shades of gray, as do some spices. Consuming red wines and dark juices will darken your teeth as well.
