By the time most people reach adulthood, simply drinking tea or coffee will cause some staining to teeth. In addition, genetics, tobacco use, stress level, diet, and medications can impact the appearance of teeth. What this means is that, if you have spots or discoloration on your teeth, you are not alone.
Dark or yellow spots on your teeth can occur because of the food and drinks that you consume every day. Coffee, red wine, fruit juices, and even soy sauce and tomato sauce can leave behind dark stains or make your teeth look yellow. On top of the staining foods, soda and some fruits and vegetables contain high levels of acidity that eat through your enamel. Cavities are another cause of dark spots on teeth.
Stained teeth can ruin an otherwise attractive smile, destroying confidence and making social interaction less enjoyable. Fortunately, modern patients with dental discoloration can turn to a number of cosmetic treatments for relief.
