  • because of the iron supplements, it is probably not actually stains. It's thinned enamel. Take him to a dentist.

  • Yeah it's probably the iron. See a pediatric dentist

  • You can try brushing his teeth (no more than once a week) with a paste made from baking soda and peroxide, but he really should have them scraped off by his dentist. If he next appointment is more than one month away, make one now.
