    hi,

    I have loads of grooves in my teeth and on my back tooth there is like a black dot and a black line on the tooth, is this just a stain or a cavity? I appreciate any help, thank you

    Here is an image of the area

    Looks like stain to me. Just get it checked next time, but I rarely even try and remove the stain because it doesn't make it "better" when there's no decay underway.
