If a single tooth has become discolored, we have a couple of options. In some cases, we can try tooth whitening on the discolored tooth. This is an unreliable and unpredictable treatment option.
A more reliable approach is using porcelain veneers to cover the discolored tooth. This can give consistent, attractive results.
Sometimes, in the case of tooth decay, trauma, or large metal amalgam filling, we might recommend root canal treatment and a porcelain crown instead of a veneer. Which treatment is best for you depends on the exact condition of your teeth.
