    My teeth turned grey overnight, what caused this to occur? Is there a medical reason caused by pres.drugs? Or another cause?
    Zev Kaufman, DDS responded:
    Dear hiskid22:

    Without an examination, it is impossible for me to give you a proper answer. The first thing that usually comes to mind is stain from tea or coffee. This can be removed very readily by your dentist/hygienist. Other reasons such as tetracycline staining take years to form and do not happen over night.

    The best suggestion that I can give you is to go and see your dentist. Make sure that your hygiene is excellent and have your dentist make sure that all is OK with your teeth.

    Please let me know what your dentist diagnoses.

    Best of luck,
    Dr. Zev Kaufman
