Dark tooth

I have front tooth that is darker than the one beside of it - but that one is a cap. It's been like this awhile- but it looks bad seems as though it looks worse! Can the dentist bleach or is it bonding? What is the price of these? Thanks!

Re: Dark tooth

hello..you must check with a doctor.dark color may be due to the death of the pulp within the tooth ..

Re: Dark tooth

After a facial accident when younger one of my upper front teeth turned dark grey so I went to a specialist and he did a root canal on the tooth (the nerve had died) and afterwards inserted a bleaching agent into the tooth and then sealed it. The tooth looked great if not a shade whiter than the tooth next to it plus I didn't need to get it crowned or do anything destructive it - even bonding requires that the tooth be prepped in some way. Check wit your dentist to find out what options are available and/or right for you.
