Stained teeth: You need to see your dentist. Many things can cause teeth to be discolored. It may be what you are eating or drinking. You may be able to correct the color by bleaching, bonding, or you may even be able to get improvement from a cleaning and polishing.

Several options: First i would obtain a professional dental cleaning. This would allow the dentist to determine the extent of actual staining under the tooth surface. If the is still staining after the cleaning the dentist can provide specific options. These options may include bonding, porcelain veneers, whitening, or microabrasion. Your dentist can assist you in making decisions for your care.
