    Staining teeth after treatment?

    Smilingbookreader posted:
    I have a tooth that has a stain from taking the HepC medicines (I had the treatment for a year and a month and I haven't gotten the 6 month check yet). It's a small stain that's at the bottom of one of my teeth that's next to my big front tooth next to my K9 tooth. I've bleached it once a day for two nights with some sucess but it's still noticiable. I'm going to the dentist soon and I'm not really looking forward to explaining why if it's asked. Any help on what to do with the tooth. Or should I just go in for the teeth cleaning and it'll go away after that?

    you mean your dentist is not aware you have hep c - not good
    also theres nothing anywhere stating or suggesting this would have anything to do with taking hep c meds

    I told my dentist. He was very compassionate. I just don't want to give this to someone else.
