The cause of yellow teeth
Although the colour of each person's enamel may vary, it can also be more yellow depending on eating habits. Tea, coffee, curry, beetroot, red wine, and tomato sauce are all food products that tend to stain teeth. Tobacco can also be responsible for these marks which can mar your smile.
