noooo tooth turning gray :(

My ds 3.5 hit his mouth and knocked his two bottom teeth loose..dentist said they could turn gray and i see the one is starting too. Anyone have this happen and fix it? Im crushed we are crazy about dental hygiene and i know we could not prevent this due to trauma to the teeth but i dont want my child to have a gray tooth...help!

That happened when I was little. It turned back normal after a few days, but my mom prayed a lot about it

Sorry! At least it is just a baby tooth. Did the dentist say if his permanent tooth will be grey also?

That happened to me when I was little and it stayed grey until it fell out, which was a few years later. My adult tooth is fine and there's no long term damage.

I got kicked in the mouth when I was about 5 and one of my top front teeth turned gray. It stayed gray until it fell out a couple years later.

DD's did this after she fell and hit it. It turned grey a few days later but has since gotten a lot lighter in color. You can't tell now unless you really look for it.

This happened to me when I was about 8. My permanent front tooth was nearly knocked out by a softball. My tooth did turn gray and remained so about a month or more! We were worried it would always be gray. But it is fine now. Not quite as white as the others, but something only I would notice. Oh, and the enamel is kinda gone from it, so if I eat something with really string food coloring (particularly blue!) it stains y tooth for a few hours.
