A few people I know have yellow looking teeth; they are vegetarians. Is there a connection? They are not smokers.
I am not aware of any studies linking yellow teeth to vegetarians. If they are tea drinkers, this can stain the teeth or if their oral hygiene isn`t good, this can create yellow teeth as well.
