What Causes Brown Spots on Teeth?

These teeth stains can range in color from yellowish brown all the way to a deep black-brown color and can appear in a variety of ways. Some people notice blotchy and irregular spots and patches, while other people’s brown markings look like discolored lines.

There are Several Causes of Brown Spots on Teeth:

  1. Food and Drinks: Dark colored foods contain a chemical called chromogens that is known for staining tooth enamel. Food containing artificial dyes and colors also have the power to leave stains on teeth.
  2. Tartar: When plaque becomes hardened on teeth due to poor dental hygiene, it turns into a permanent coating, called tartar, that can only be removed by a dentist.
  3. Tobacco Products: Particles from these products build up over repeated use and stain teeth. These stains and spots become harder to remove over time as a result of smoking, chewing, or dipping.
  4. Tooth Decay: Many people who don’t properly take care of their teeth develop decay around filling or cavities that leave dark spots.
  5. Poor Dental Hygiene:  If you fail to regularly brush and floss your teeth it leads to the buildup of plaque and tartar, which discolors teeth.
  6. Dental Fluorosis: Caused by consuming to much fluoride in your youth. 

While many conditions can lead to the appearance of brown spots on teeth, dental fluorosis really causes concern because it indicates that you have been overexposed to fluoride.

Let’s take a closer look at the alarming truth about dental fluorosis and how it can affect your teeth.

What is Fluorosis?

For decades dentists have informed us that our children need fluoride to shield their teeth from cavities. The fact is…


And when consumed in high concentrations, fluoride causes dental fluorosis.

Fluorosis is a dental term that describes the developmental disturbance in regards to the enamel. It is not a disease, but rather a cosmetic condition. Overexposure to fluoride causes fluorosis, especially during the years when the teeth are developing, typically up to age 8

The effects of fluoride on tooth enamel include lower mineral content and an increase in porosity. Typically, the dentist measures the damage by examining the surfaces of the teeth when clean, dry and under good lighting.

If the dentist suspects dental fluorosis, they can further examine your teeth and gums. X-rays are beneficial to make sure the teeth do not have any other defects, like cavities.

Determining Fluorosis Severity

The visual effects of Fluorosis dictates the severity. Let’s take a look at the varying degrees of damage:

Unfortunately, the visual effects of dental fluorosis (brown spots on teeth) and any type of stained teeth, can greatly affect one’s self-esteem… but luckily there is a way to instantly transform your smile!
