I have a baby that has a silver tooth that is coming in.

Has anyone else ever seen this? I have a 16 month old that has what looks like a silver tooth coming in. It isn't a cap or a filling. We are trying to get a hold of the dentist so he can take a look at it. Its in a molar spot in the back of her mouth.

  • No I haven't.... that sounds odd. Let us know what the dentist says. Good luck!

  • it could be infected - did you give bottles laying down because they say that the sugar in the milk can rot the back teeth (because you said it was a molar.) no judgement i gave ds bottles laying down till i heard about it. or it could just be funny colored.

  • Sounds like it is infected or rotted. I would keep calling until I could see a pediatric dentist.

  • When one of my son's molars came in, the top looked rotted, and weird shaped. I used my finger and scraped over the top of it and it turns out, it was a piece of jaw bone had come out with the tooth on top. LOL His tooth was fine under it.

  • Sometimes a baby tooth can be formed that has no proper nerve endings and circulation and it is dead. It may have to be removed.

  • I wish I could get a picture of the tooth. It is definitely a pearlized silver color. Waiting on the dentist.

  • Hmmm...never heard of it, but I just googled it and saw that a GRAY can be caused from injuries or infection according to a dentist's blog that I found. Maybe that's what it is? Hope you get some answers soon!
