But till that afraid his more teeth won`t discolor.
The discoloration and "sharp" features on your child's teeth indicate cavities. It is good that you have an appointment with a dentist soon. Take your child in earlier if he develops pain or swelling in the area of the involved teeth. Your dentist will advise you about treatment options and methods to prevent future decay.
