Adult teeth?

Hannah is getting an upper front tooth coming in and i'm getting paranoid. the cololr is significantly darker than her baby teeth (which are perfectly white, so maybe the contrast makes it appear worse.)

Her two bottom teeth are slightly darker but this adult one seems more yellow than it should be. How worried should I be? any one else noticing this??

i talked to her dentist..he said that baby teeth are thinner enamel which makes them whiter. adult teeth are darker bc of thicker enamel.

good to know! i can stop worrying:)

I suspect this is how it will go with Molly's adult teeth as well.
