Poor dental hygiene. Inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain-producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discoloration. Disease. Several diseases that affect enamel (the hard surface of the teeth) and dentin (the underlying material under enamel) can lead to tooth discoloration. Floss. Floss at least once a day. Get regular dental cleanings. Your dentist can detect early gum disease symptoms if you see them on a regular basis. Quit smoking. Brush twice a day. Use fluoride toothpaste. Use a therapeutic mouthwash.
