Over time, your tooth surface enamel cracks and erodes, exposing dentin, the less dense interior of the tooth, which absorbs food colour. Stains also latch onto the plaque and tartar buildup on and between teeth. Some food and drink, including coffee, tea, colas, smoke, acidic juices, certain medications, and highly pigmented foods, can all stain your teeth.

Many common stains can be cleaned and removed between professional dental cleanings and treatments with these common home remedies.
