Drinks such as coffee, tea, and red wine are the main culprits behind tooth staining, while smoking cigarettes can also contribute to teeth turning brown. To assess the probability of individuals experiencing tooth discoloration, Imagix Dental’s research team has developed the Discolored Teeth Index. This comprehensive index ranks all 50 states and major U.S. cities based on their consumption of teeth-staining drinks and the prevalence of smoking stains caused by cigarettes. Unlike studies that primarily focus on dental care quality and the like, this index specifically identifies locations where stained and discolored teeth are more prevalent, regardless of an individual’s dental habits.
