In brief: TEETH DISCOLORATION

Certain antibiotic like tetracycline can cause teeth discoloration when used among children.

I agree with the original answer. Something else that comes to mind, as I have a 2-year-old son, is that trauma to a "baby tooth" can cause it to discolor/darken...this would only occur in the tooth/teeth that were hit

In brief: Lots of reasons

Remember that baby teeth start forming before birth.
Alteration in enamel may be genetic, caused by virus, cavities, tetracycline, overdosing w fluoride, and so many other reasons. At 2 your child is a year overdue for 1st ck-up and cleaning. Dentist can answer question after examining your child. Please call dentist for appointment now.
