Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Some variation in the color of the teeth is something normal.
It does not at all indicate a problem with the enamel of the teeth.
So I would not worry whatsoever if he is otherwise healthy.
Let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you for your prompt reply. Is it possible to explain why the teeth appear different colour in some light or shade.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
It is due to the color of the light that reflects on the teeth.
It is a normal occurrence and does not indicate any disease process.
