Hello , Thanks for your query first. Your black teeth / spot may be due to : TARTER: there is a deposition of biofilm on teeth and gum line. when it calcified it called tarter. And the reason of this tarter is lack of oral hygiene / cleaning. That's why it's is recommended to go for a dentist to know your oral hygiene status. Dentist will perform scaling / bleaching depends on your dental condition. Then follow some basic ways of whitening teeth are as follows... 1. Brush After Drinking or Eating. 2. Use Hydrogen Peroxide: use half water and half hydrogen peroxide, swish around in your mouth for about one minute, and then rinse.  3. Use lemon and orange peel. 4. Use of organic & Healthy Foods. 5. Coconut Oil Pulling: this is tried and tested. Many of my patients are praising the results of oil pulling.

Black spots could be because of the following reasons:- 1- The teeth are getting stained because of consuming coffee , wine, cola etc, smoking also causes stains. But these are all extrinsic stains and they can be removed by Scaling and polishing. 2- Black spots are a sign of tooth decay which develop from snacking on sugary starchy foods in excess .
Next Steps
Visit a dentist and get it checked. If any decay is present then get it filled.

Hello . To begin with if the black spots are on the teeth that can be removed with proper scaling and polishing by a dentist. Sometimes post scaling you will see small open gaps in between the teeth which was occupied earlier by the tartar and plaque and is usually mistaken as black spots. Normally long term tartar turns brown almost black but can be professionally cleaned. Hopefully I have answered your question.

Well...from the description sounds like an aged plaque. And plaque turning black could be because of coloured food substances consumed which gave the colour black to plaque. Though for diagnosis and treatment purpose I would recommend to consult dental surgeon as clinical examination is important. Regards Dr. Shrivardhan
Next Steps
Consult dental surgeon
