Medications or resto: Both can cause a metallic taste in the mouth. Silver fillings tend to leach out a metallic taste when they encounter acid (juice, bacteria).

Sometimes medicine: Check side effect of any medications you are taking, you might find it listed there. Also two dissimilar metalic fillings next to one another, in contact with each other, can cause this.
