On most pianos, the black keys are made of ebony wood. All wood needs to be kept moisturized. I recommend that you try a good quality oil for wood on one of the keys. If the white is still there, try Zap Wood Restorer, available on the web.

I would call a piano dealer and ask if they could recommend something. After that, just go with your gut and your wallet.
