Q.

teeth changing colour

i have quite yellow teeth naturally. but at times they appear to be more yellow then others. i maintain the same diet and do not smoke or drink coffee, only tea. and i brush twice a day with regular non whitening toothpaste. when i' ve used whitening toothpaste in the past iv noticed this same kind of changes.

what could be the cause of this? is it just random or do i imagine it?

sometimes plaque can accumulate more than other times- this could be giving the yeloowish appearance.
diet as well as smoking also plays a role in yellowing teeth
