Teeth staining is very common and is caused by our daily intake of food and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine to name but a few, however, some people do have slightly grey or yellow teeth which does not mean they are not healthy.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment (also known as endodontics) is required when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (also known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. In the past, a root filled tooth would often darken after treatment. However, with modern techniques this does not usually happen.
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.
Crown Treatments and Bridges
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a cap.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Almost like how a false nail fits over a fingernail. Sometimes a natural colour 'composite' material is used instead of porcelain to suit your natural teeth.
