The following patient complained that his front tooth had turned dark. This sometimes happens when the pulp of a tooth is injured and dies. Typically, the tooth requires root canal therapy.

The “after” picture taken immediately after treatment shows the tooth a little lighter than the others. Normally it will “tone down a notch” and blend nicely.
