What is this little crater I found on my tooth? How get rid of it/ fix it?
Recently my teeth have been showing some staining. I do not smoke or drink. I have been using baking soda, but it only has worked a little.

I brush, floss, and mouthwash both night and day. How else can I actually get rid of these brown spot?

And now my main question, on one of my teeth, I found a little circular spot on the surface which is lower than the rest. It is as if a thing layer of the surface of my teeth came off in this little circular area. I never felt anything chip off.

What is the crater? How can I fix it?

Thanks!

THIS SMALL CRATER MAY WELL BE A NATURALLY PRESENT DENTAL PIT. THIS AREA NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED TOSEE IF THIS PIT CONTAINS DECAY.
THE TOOTHBRUSH, NO MATTER WHICH TOOTHLASTE YOU USE, IS ABLE TO PROPERLY CLEAN THESE AREAS.
THIS SMALL CRATER CAN BE FILLED WITH FLOWABLE COMPOSITE (a type of tooth-colored filling) AND BE MADE TO LOOK PERFECT. THIS COMPOSITE IS GENTLY PAINED ON THE TOOTH AND MADE HARD BY A SPECIAL BLUE LIGHT.

I agree with the other responders. I had the same thing happen on my back molar on the side. It was a cavity that developed because I wasn't getting the toothbrush back where it needed to be!
See your dentist for sure!

Baking soda is to abrasive to be used on a regular basis. You probably are wearing off the enamel on your teeth which now could be a start of a cavity. If you have worn off the enamel those areas are much more susceptible to stains, cavities, sensitivity, etc. Please see your dentist and stop using baking soda.

no matter how much you floss,brush and rinse cavities can and will occur, especially if your enamel is weak. haveyour dentist check it out.

Chances are the 'crater' is actually a cavity which can form even if you brush your teeth daily. See your dentist they can answer all of you questions.

You need to see a dentist. It sounds like you have a cavity. There is no way to get rid of that by yourself. Even the cleanest mouth can get a cavity.

It could be a cavity or a chip in the enamel. In either case, you need to see a dentist before decay really sets in and causes you a problem. Seeing a dental hygienist every six months for a professional cleaning will help with stains and help spot things before they become big problems.
