Doctor :   Permanent teeth are usually more white than milk teeth.
Doctor :   There are mouthwashes available these days but that are to be discussed with dentist itself.

Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   If there is bleeding then only tooth turns black otherwise do not.
Doctor :   Further an examination is required for it .
User :   but can anything be done for this discoloring of tooth. B'coz it looks bad as it is the front top tooth
Doctor :   Whitening mouthwashes are available these days, you can ask the dental surgeon for it.
