Teeth Staining - Crest Pro Health

Is there any new information on Crest Pro Health and teeth staining?  After using this product, especially the night rinse, my white teeth began to develop brown stains.  I have never in my lifetime ever had stained teeth until now.  At first, I though that the browning was a coincidence.  After reading the postings on this site, I now believe that a cause-and-effect relationship between my using the Pro Health rinse and the staining exists.


This discussion is related to Crest Pro-Health Rinse stains teeth.

I recently looked on Crest's website... after experiencing brown stains on and between my lower front teeth.  I had heard about the staining but did NOT think it would actually happen! I assumed the "staining" that Crest refers to in their (note the quotations) "warning" meant that the blue dye would make them appear blue or something until you washed it out.  I had no idea my teeth would look BROWN!!  But they still have the same warning and make claims that the staining might actually mean the mouth wash is working- which I dont believe.  They need to pull it off the market or else warn people that this so called staining makes your teeth look like you've smoked 12 packs of cigarettes a day for 80 years.

I experienced the same disturbing browning of my teeth.   I hoped it wasn't noticeable to others, but I learned later (after I had the stains removed by my dentist) that my little niece thought I had started doing drugs or chewing tobacco.  

My dentist was mystified when I told him that the mouthwash was the only thing new in my routine.  I was still doubtful until I saw all of these postings on the web.
