I have black spots in teeth. Can swimming be one of the cause ?

Dear Doc, Of late i have noticed black spots in my front teeths. I have been swimming for the last 2 months and occasionally swallow water. Are these black spots due to these. Three weeks back i had also done my dental check-up where-in i did scaling, polishing and filling for my teeth. Can this too cause it. Please advise I am not sure what could be causing this? Rakesh

Dentist 's  Response
The black spots could be oozed blood from your gingiva on to the tooth surface. Tooth brushing would be sufficient to remove it . If it is not gone you can consult your dentist and get scaling done on the particular teeth alone.

Hello rakesh ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Swimming and chlorine water should not cause any sort of black spots on teeth as till now there is no such thing reported.Yes but if you have done polishing and scaling it can result in such spots and the reason will be the rough area created by polishing and scaling can cause accumulation of tartar.Better please consult your dentist and have a follow up check up and if required treatment.
