black spot on tooth

User Level:

Posted by: bnachd  (10 years ago)
Let's say you have a spot of dark discoloration on the outside of your tooth near the gum line. Is it possible that it will never need treatment? Or is it just a matter of time before it needs a filling or something?

Some black spots are stains, others are cavities. Only a dental visit will tell. I would not take the chance.
