Dark Tooth

A Dark/discoloured tooth is often caused by trauma which could be the result of an accident, fall or a hit to the tooth. Sometimes it can turn pink due to resorption of the nerve of the teeth. This discolouration does not occur in a day, it takes a period of time as the nerve slowly dies within. In such cases, a  good root canal treatment followed by tooth coloured (composite) restoration is the best treatment recommended.
