    There are various causes for yellowish discoloration of tooth.Most common cause is drinks such as coffee, tea, colas, wines, and certain fruits and vegetables (for example, apples and potatoes) can stain your teeth. Smoking or chewing tobacco can also stain teeth. Poor dental hygiene cause by inadequate brushing and flossing to remove plaque and stain-producing substances like coffee and tobacco can cause tooth discoloration. Several diseases that affect enamel (the hard surface of the teeth) and dentin (the underlying material under enamel) can lead to tooth discoloration. Treatments for certain conditions can also affect tooth color. For example, head and neck radiation and chemotherapy can cause teeth discoloration. The antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline are known to discolor teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8). Mouth rinses and washes containing chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Antihistamines (like Benadryl), antipsychotic drugs, and drugs for high blood pressure also cause teeth discoloration.. also with advancing age, the outer layer of enamel on your teeth gets worn away, revealing the natural yellow color of dentin. Excessive fluoride either from environmental sources (naturally high fluoride levels in water) or from excessive use (fluoride applications, rinses, toothpaste, and fluoride supplements taken by mouth) can cause teeth discoloration.Trauma may damage enamel formation in young children whose teeth are still developing and can also cause discoloration to adult teeth.But, there are various products which can whiten your teeth consult your nearest dentist for further details
