Brown spot on toddler's tooth UPDATE post #11

I'm so upset about this! I just discovered a brown spot on my toddler's tooth. It looks pretty bad to me. It's indented, so I don't think it's something that will scrape away. I had an appointment on Wednesday with a pediatric dentist.

Please tell me this will be okay! Have I ruined his teeth? Will I have to night/nap wean? I feel sick to my stomach about all of this.

DS is 18 months old.
