Tooth Discoloration Diagnosis

Font : A-A+

How can we diagnose Tooth Discoloration ?

Diagnosis is made based on the color of the stain. If the stain still remains after meticulous cleaning of the teeth by the dentist, it is understood that the stain is present within the substance of the tooth.

A careful history taking can be useful in differentiating between an internal stain and an external stain.

would teeth discoloration be caused by pollen allergies? My daughter has always had beautiful teeth but now dark spots have appeared on a couple of her teeth. They are not cavities and appear to be on the surface.
