What Can Be Done About Teeth That Turn Black?

Following accidents, injuries, infections, or dental disease, you may notice that one of your teeth starts taking on a darker shade. In some cases, you may notice it goes from white to grey, whereas in others, the colour may gradually change to almost black.

This can be cause for concern, so it’s important not to ignore the problem and to see a dentist as soon as possible to get the cause diagnosed. Here’s what you should expect if you notice dark discolouration or dark spots on your teeth.

Key takeaways:

–   Your dentist will suggest a course of action after finding out the cause. The extent of treatment depends on whether the inside of the tooth has been affected.

–   You may need root canal therapy. This will remove dead tissue and restore your tooth without needing to get it extracted.

–   If the damage is severe or the affected area too large to be saved, you may need to have a tooth extraction.

Remember that even after treatment, it may take some time for your tooth to go back to its natural colour.
