They may look too dark or be comprised of ‘different’ colours. Especially disconcerting is when a front tooth is a different colour.
An individual tooth of a different colour means that it has suffered some trauma (such as having the nerve removed). When all teeth look darker or are discoloured, this may be due to the ageing process or to antibiotic therapy taken in childhood.
As a skilled cosmetic aesthetic dentist in London City EC4, Dr George Druttman applies numerous techniques to eliminated discoloured teeth. Localised or generalised bleaching can lighten the shade of natural tooth enamel. For individual teeth the solution is to apply a porcelain veneer.
