Reasons for Teeth Turning Brown
Posted on 7/20/2019 by Dr. Leo Townsend, DDS
There are many reasons why your teeth may grow stained. For instance, the tannic acid in foods like wine and coffee will stain your teeth, as will biological factors and trauma. If your teeth are turning brown though, you should know this is happening for a different reason.

The acid that's found within this plaque will break down your tooth enamel. When this happens, you'll start developing brown stains on your teeth.

There are also whitening toothpaste and mouthwash, as well as strips and tray systems that you can buy from your local store. If this makes you feel uncomfortable though, you can always come into our office for a visit during which we'll scrape, blast, or rub away any tartar or plaque that's building up on your teeth causing these brown spots to develop....
