People who had root canal treatment or any traumatic injury in their tooth will notice that the affected tooth turns dark in time. For
While dark tooth can obviously ruin a smile, as long as it is healthy and able to serve its purpose well, you may opt to let it stay that way. Otherwise, you need to have it addressed or get ready to face more expensive dental treatments in the future. Additionally, if the dark tooth is making you close your mouth when you ought to say cheese, it’s a clue that you want to put an end to a dark tooth phase. Your dentist can recommend cosmetic dentistry procedures to regain your nice, even-colored set of teeth.
One option is teeth whitening. It’s a non-invasive procedure and you only have to wait for two weeks to see the results. If the front tooth went through a root canal procedure, it will be opened to get rid of the old filling before it will be whitened inside and out. Aside from being reasonably priced, you also get to whiten your other teeth. Other options are cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneer or crown. Cosmetic bonding is cheap, easy and fast but if you want one that is more natural-looking and durable, better go for porcelain veneer or crown.
