    Hi dewbug,

    While we cannot provide medical advice or diagnosis here, black spots on your teeth could signal tooth decay (see this article for more symptoms). I suggest making an appointment to see your dentist for an exam. If it is decay, you will want to get treatment as soon as possible to stop the decay from growing or worsening.

    Best wishes,
