The hardest part of our teeth is the enamel that is capable of entrapping and sedimenting minute particles. Teeth attain its natural color as light reflects off this surface thereby contributing color and appearance. Thinner enamels are known to better color than rough ones and appear more stained if not cleaned properly.
Some of the common reasons behind teeth staining are the usage of tobacco, consumption of dark-colored beverages such as coffee, tea, wine, and improper practice of oral hygiene.
