Maintaining pearly white teeth can be very difficult without following strict lifestyle habits, and even then, there are other factors that can lead to white teeth becoming discolored over time. Discoloration or staining can be the result of a long list of common habits, aging, and existing conditions.
Some of the most common reasons why teeth change color, include:
Aging – Due to lifestyle habits or genetics, tooth discoloration can be a natural sign of aging that can start as early as your 20’s.
Smoking – Smoking is very bad for the health of your teeth and gums and is a common cause of tooth staining.
Bad Diet – Certain foods and drinks, particularly those that are high in sugar and acid, can slowly begin to damage your teeth and cause discoloration.
Caffeine – Acidic drinks that are high in caffeine, like tea and coffee, can change the color of your teeth over time.
Poor Oral Hygiene – Poor hygiene practices can lead to high levels of tartar and plaque that can damage the appearance of your teeth.
