4, Aging – general aging of the teeth can cause a slight yellow appearnce
5, Fillings – dental fillings can cause a greay apperance to teeth espicially the metal fillings or amalgam fillings
6, Trauma to teeth – if teeth suffer an injury then over a long period the nerve whithin the tooth also known as the pulp can deteriorate and the teh byproducts of this will cause the discoluraiton of the teeth
