There are several reasons why teeth may darken. These include:

• Food/drinks, coffee, tea, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth.

• Tobacco use, smoking or chewing tobacco can stain teeth.

• Poor dental hygiene, inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discolouration.
