Why has one of my teeth gone grey?!

Question: Why has one of my teeth gone grey!?
Ages ago i got a filling that has gone black and now the tooth's gone grey!. I went to the dentist ages ago and he said its alright!. Im going back to the dentist to get another filling and he might replace the other filling i don't know though!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

The tooth could be grey because of the black filling!. Please refer to the section on "Amalgam Fillings" on the link below!. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, which could be a health hazard!. The current thought on amalgam fillings is that they should be replaced with composite restorations!.

Since you aren't having pain, I don't think your tooth is dying or dead, which is another reason for a tooth turning grey!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

maybe the tooth turned grey because of the filling - the colour of the filling shines through!. this happened to me!.
otherwise a tooth turning grey can also mean that the nerves in the tooth are dead, but in that case you'd feel great pain and the dentist wouldn't tell you it's nth!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

i think that means the tooth is dead!. this happened to a friend of mine on one of his front teeth, i believe because he hit it pretty hard on something, and he had to have the tooth removed!. sorry, im not trying to scare you!. this is just what i think!. good luck!Www@Answer-Health@Com
