-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- From the foods you eat to habits such as smoking, many factors contribute to tooth discoloration.

The Cleveland Clinic suggests these preventive tips:

  • Cut back on coffee.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Floss and brush your teeth regularly.
  • See a dental hygienist twice each year.
  • Visit your dentist if discoloration doesn't ease after changing habits, or if you have other symptoms, such as bleeding gums.
