Dark Tooth – Restoring Your Perfect Smile
A dark tooth is a tooth that turns almost black because of a blood flow problem and the resulting dead tissue causes discoloration inside the tooth. Patients can get very upset when they see a dark tooth that is most noticeable when they smile. In most instances, a dark tooth was caused by some kind of injury. Sadly, these injuries usually affect the front teeth and are very noticeable to others. In almost all instances, a root canal is required to save the tooth itself.
******It is very important to distinguish between a Dark/Gray/Black Tooth and a Yellow/Orange tooth.******
- The simplest method to whiten a dark tooth is cosmetic dental whitening. This procedure uses a series of special bleaching agents that are applied both in the dentist office and at home.
- Apply cosmetic dental bonding resin over the front of the tooth to restore normal tooth color.
- Cosmetic dental veneers are thin, porcelain sheets that mimic the natural color of surrounding teeth and lay right over the surface of the tooth.
- Porcelain crowns are an exceptionally hard substance and allows the patient to eat a normal diet. It prevents everyone from ever knowing that the person had a root canal.
