My 5-year old fell off his bike a couple of weeks ago. His gums bled excessively and a couple of his teeth was loose. I noticed his teeth is now discolored. What can I do to help with the discoloration?
Will Trauma to Teeth and Gums Cause Discoloration if Excessive Bleeding Has Occurred?

Dark teeth after trauma
Traumatized teeth often turn dark. They may turn light again or even become infected. Being 5 years old, it is likely the the teeth will be lost soon normally. I would not recommend treatment to lighted the teeth at this age, but options include bonding, single tooth bleaching, and crowns.
