Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the effect of age on tooth colour and to record the range of tooth colour in patients in Baghdad, Iraq.

The proportion of patients with grey colour and red-grey increased with age. Since each tooth might possess different shades in its surface, the quadrant method of shade selection is recommended
