Common Causes of Stained Teeth

Many different things can lead to stained teeth. Some of the most common include:


It is one of the leading causes of stained teeth. Cigarettes contain nicotine and tar, which can cause your teeth to become dark yellow or brown over time.

Certain Foods and Drinks

Frequent consumption of dark-coloured foods and drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, cola, and curry can stain your teeth.

Poor Oral Hygiene

If you don't brush and floss regularly, plaque and tartar can build on your teeth. These are susceptible to staining from the foods and drinks you consume.


Stained teeth can be a side effect of medications like antihistamines, antibiotics, and antipsychotic drugs.


As you age, your tooth enamel becomes thinner. This makes the yellow color of your dentin (the inner layer) more visible.


Tooth discolouration can occur if the pulp (tooth nerve) is damaged. This may happen if you have an injury to your mouth or your tooth has undergone root canal treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Stained Teeth

There are two types of teeth stains. Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth and can be caused by smoking and consuming dark-coloured drinks and foods.

Intrinsic stains are on the deeper layers of teeth and are usually due to genetic conditions, medications, injuries, or ageing. Both can be addressed with professional dental treatments.

With a whiter smile, you will feel more confident in your appearance, and it can significantly improve your self-esteem. This is especially helpful if your career requires social interactions or if you are hoping to make a good first impression.

Teeth that are stained can add years to your appearance, but with brighter teeth, you can look younger.

Here is the list of some common offenders:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Soda
  • Berries
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Curry
  • Soy sauce

If you cannot avoid these, try to limit your intake or be sure to brush your teeth after consuming them.

It will depend on the type of teeth stain and its severity. Some can be managed with home remedies, good oral hygiene, and at-home whitening products. Others may require professional dental management.

If you want to be certain, it is best to consult a qualified dentist first. They can assess your stained teeth and recommend the ideal course of action.

It depends on the severity of your stained teeth and how well they respond to treatment. One or two whitening sessions may be enough if you have mild discolouration.

However, you may need multiple sessions or a combination of treatments to achieve the desired results if your teeth are severely stained.
