In brief: Teeth are dirty

Time to call a dentist for an examination and a professional cleaning.

In brief: Drug staining

Sometimes, people have staining on their teeth from being given certain medications before their enamel has fully formed on their permanent teeth.
Tetracycline antibiotics are famous for causing grey/brown teeth. However, orange/brown teeth can also be seen in a rare genetic disease called porphyria (guther's disease). I would see a doctor to have this checked out.

In brief: Tooth Discoloration

Teeth have not been cleaned properly, and the accumulated dental plaque can produce orange/ brown or yellow color. A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health, general health and prevent tooth discoloration.
