I have one dark front tooth that I want fixed. What are my options?

Return to FAQs

Restoring a single, dark central incisor to match an adjacent natural central incisor is one of the most difficult challenges for a cosmetic dentist. Bleaching can lighten a dark tooth but usually the results are sub par. A porcelain veneer can mask a dark tooth but special techniques are needed to avoid the color showing through because of the transparent nature of a porcelain veneer. Some newer all porcelain crowns can completely block out the dark color and look very natural. Often we need to restore both central incisors to get a perfect color match. Each case is unique.
