  • Clenching/grinding of the teeth, known as Bruxism cause micro- cracking of the teeth. These cracks readily absorb stains and cause stain internalization.
  • Genetic disorders like Amelogenesis Imperfecta or Dentinogenesis Imperfecta which causes abnormal formation of enamel and dentin and hence abnormal shade of the teeth.
  • Flourosis of the teeth which occurs due to hypo mineralization and an excessive intake of fluoride during enamel formation. Initially white spots are seen, which at an advanced stage causes brown staining.
  • Dental trauma that might have caused internal resorption or necrosis of the pulpal tissue, resulting in discoloration of the tooth.
