  • My 18 year old daughter's bottom front tooth - the top - has turned a greyish color in the last 5 weeks. No pain or sensitivity. She has a permanent retainer. She's in college and I can't get her to a dentist for a month. How much should I be concerned? Is this tooth decay? ...Visitor from NYC     (answer)

  • Last week my 3 year old son's front tooth started to darken and become discolored. We took him to his pediatric dentist and she said he probably fell and injured it and we weren't aware of it. She took x-rays and said the tooth looked OK and we would monitor it. She didn't say if there was any treatment to help with the discoloration. It has since gotten darker and I really would hate to think that he will have to leave it like that untill it falls out...is there anything to do to help with the discoloration of the tooth? ...Visitor from NC     (answer)

  • I have had an apicectomy a year ago on a front tooth. It seems to be slowly going grey. Will it eventually go really grey? Could it break off? I can't have a crown done because I am left with trigeminal neuralgia and don't want to interfere with it. I appreciate any advice. ...Visitor from Graz, Australia     (answer)

  • My son is 7 and his first bottom 2 permanent teeth have come in badly miscolored with differant colored specs on each tooth. His teeth became discolored due to Tetracycline. His top permanent tooth is now coming in and it too is totaly miscolored with specs also. I know that when he gets older he can get veneers but I am worried about him being teased in school and what this may do to his self confidence. Is there anything that can be done about this? ...Visitor from IN     (answer)

  • When I was 9, my top, left tooth in the front was partially knocked out. It was barely hanging on. A nearby dentist placed the tooth back in it's place, and it seemed to have worked. When I was 13 I started experiencing pains shooting through the tooth. I went to my dentist and he told me that I needed a root canal. As far as I know, all went well with that. My question is now my tooth is noticably yellow. What can I do to get this tooth the same as the rest of my teeth. I smoke, so I my teeth aren't extremely white, but they are definately whiter than my tooth that was partially knocked out. Any sugguestions will be greatly appreciated. ...Visitor from NC     (answer)
