My babies top tooth has come through yellow it's not the whole just the middle. His bottom teeth are lovely and white. Anyone know why?

Not sure if it's true but my friend was told that teeth can be discoloured while growing in the womb for various reasons, like the mother being ill at a certain gestation....

Yes, as ispy says, this is what my dentist has told me. And a friend was told the same by a specialist.

It's a bit upsetting when you have tried your best through pregnancy, and then a little virus can do this!

Thought I would share a post.
I suffered with a few UTI's when I was pregnant. They will coat his tooth for purely cosmetic reasons

My sister was made to take Fluoride tablets when she was pregnant. My niece has had mottled teeth ever since, even her adult teeth are like this. Cleaning and polishing make not the slightest bit of difference and she cannot afford veneers.
