Causes of Tooth Darkening

Last updated 4 years ago

As you get older, you may notice that the surface of your teeth becomes darker and more yellow. Knowing about the primary causes of tooth darkening will allow you to avoid those causes and preserve your smile.

Watch this video to find out more about what causes teeth to darken. Medication and tobacco products are two primary causes of tooth darkening. Certain foods and drinks, especially those that are dark in color or acidic, can also cause tooth discoloration.

Teeth whitening treatments can restore the brightness of your teeth so you can be proud to show off your smile. If you’d like to schedule a teeth whitening appointment in NYC, call Dr. Kenn Kakosian D.D.S., P.C. at (212) 661-9777.
