    Hi all, I am currently 19 years old and haven't had any serious work done on my teeth (no fillings etc). Recently I have been worried about the dark marks on my back tooth could anyone help me find out if it is a stain or something a bit worse? I have uploaded a picture if you want to take a look, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks so much.

    No one can tell you without an x-ray and proper clinical exam, but from the picture it appears to be mostly stain with maybe a very small cavity starting there - something that would take many years to develop into a more serious problem.
