Discolored Teeth

Discolored or darkened teeth can prevent you from smiling with the confidence you should as they don’t look natural or healthy.

This can happen due to several reasons: older age, smoking, staining foods or drinks, teeth that have previously been root canal treated, caries and old restorations.

Depending on the cause there are different solutions, such as bleaching and crowns/veneer, so that you can have your natural looking smile back.
