Tooth suddenly turned gray!! Only 21 yrs old, why?! HELP.
I am a 21 year old female who takes EXTREMELY good care of her teeth! I have yearly dentist appts. and I brush twice daily. Not much into sugary things, only once in a while.
Today I was smiling in the mirror, just kind of checking out my teeth, and I noticed a GRAY TOOTH, my "eye" tooth. It is a shade of gray that I cannot believe I didn't notice before... it seems to have happened overnight. My boyfriend claims he had noticed it for a while now but didn't want to mention it to me.
What causes this? What can I do? I was thinking about getting ZOOM whitening before I noticed the gray tooth, but now I'm thinking if I get the ZOOM then I am still going to have a noticeably darker shade of "white" tooth!
What are the medical reasons for a good tooth to turn gray, and why do teeth turn gray to begin with?
