Hi there, since our last dentist visit my sons front adult teeth have really come through and they have come through with significant discolouration. I don’t know if this is plaque or something else. Can’t get a check up with our dentist as they are prioritising urgent treatments built up due to Covid so was wondering if anyone could advise what the cause could be? Bit worried for him. Thanks

It looks like external staining. Did your child have a significant fever about 2 to 3 yrs ago. Does your child take any special medications, rinses, drinking dark beverages, herbal supplements, etc? Any information can be very helpful. My first thought was he is rinsing with Chlorhexidine for a prolonged period but your child is too young for that.

Simple staining. usually from foods. The dentist will easily polish that off some time, no urgency.
