This is Dr Aires.How old is your child.If she is 5-6 years old it's possible that what your are seeing is her new adult tooth coming through.I'm concerned that it looks discolored. Could you possibly send me a photo of the tooth that seems discolored.In any case I would not attempt to take out the remaining piece until we can ascertain what is left behind.
I just noticed your child age ---8 It could definitely be her adult tooth you are seeing.In which case you should leave it alone and wait for it to erupt into the mouth.You should consider having the area x-rayed to confirm my evaluation and make sure there is no infection causing the discoloration.Please can you review my answer for me to get credit.Please feel free to ask any more questions you may have regarding your child's tooth.
I'll be available on sunday from 10.00 am California time should you have any questions.Please try to send me a photo.Thanks
