Smile Awards » Single Veneer

In this case one porcelain veneer was used on the upper left central incisor to mask the dark discolouration.

Darkening of teeth like this is normally due to trauma to the tooth, sometimes when very young. The nerve of the tooth becomes "bruised" and this darkens the tooth. Tooth whitening can sometimes help and is always the first solution to try but if that fails, a veneer or even crown may be needed.
