Be Aware Iron Solutions Can Turn Teeth Surfaces Black

Which meds can discolour teeth?

Tetracycline antibiotics are common culprits...especially during tooth development. Teeth may permanently turn yellow, grey, or brown with tetracycline or doxycycline...or blue, green, or grey with minocycline.

Alert your pharmacist if kids or pregnant women are prescribed tetracyclines.
