Internal or surface: At age 37, the superficial sources of stain are tooth decay, medications, supplements (like beta-carotene), plaque (highly likely), food and beverage. Deep discolorations come from meds, trauma, and age. In youth, teeth can erupt with superficial stains caused by overexposure to fluoride. See your dentist for a diagnosis.
