Medications That Can Stain Teeth!

The antibiotic tetracycline causes gray teeth in children whose teeth are still developing. Antibacterial mouthwashes that contain chlorhexidine or cetylpyridinium chloride can also stain teeth. Some antihistamines, antipsychotic drugs, and blood pressure medications cause tooth stains, like iron and excess fluoride. If bleaching doesn't help, ask your dentist about dental bonding, in which tooth-colored material is applied to teeth.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult a specialist & get answers to your questions!
