Tooth discoloration

  • Generally, the discoloration of the teeth comes from the consumption of coffee, tea or colas.
  • Some antibiotics can blacken the growing teeth of children.
  • Aging – the dentin that is found under the enamel of a tooth gradually blackens with the age.
  • Use of tobacco products.
  • Accidents – If a tooth has suffered a trauma, sometimes the nerve “is dying” gradually, and the tooth blackens.
  • In general, a tooth also blackens after a root canal treatment.
