Internal Tooth Bleaching: Black Teeth Treatment London

A dark, discoloured, black tooth is a sign your tooth may have died or is partially dead, most likely due to previous trauma or deep decay. Dark tooth treatment will initially involve root canal treatment if the tooth has not already been treated. This procedure is when the root canal chamber containing the nerve is emptied and disinfected, and a rubber filling is packed tightly inside the canal. There are two methods of restoring the tooth colour of the black tooth: either internal tooth bleaching or placing a veneer on the tooth.

Black teeth treatment patients seeking internal tooth bleaching and other treatments often recall knocking their tooth in an accident some time ago, which can then cause the nerve to die over time. The cause of the discolouration is thought to be decomposing blood products from the pulp inside the tooth. The black tooth discolouration caused by the decomposing blood products is permanent. It will not go back to the original colour of its own accord, causing it to stand out from the rest of your teeth and in turn, possibly making you feel self-conscious about smiling.

Black Teeth Treatment – More About Internal Tooth Bleaching at Smile Cliniq

Smile Cliniq, one of the best London dentists, offers internal bleaching to help solve the problem of black teeth. Internal bleaching is like normal teeth whitening but whitens the tooth from the inside. It can only be done after root canal treatment and will improve the discolouration after one session. The result, however, cannot be guaranteed to match the rest of your teeth, but will significantly improve its appearance.

Black Teeth Treatment Options & Costs

Internal whitening starts from £250 per tooth (excluding restoration). Please note in some cases; a previous root canal filling may be leaking, hence the dark colour of the tooth. In some instances, this root canal treatment may have to be redone before the internal tooth whitening.

An alternative to internal tooth bleaching is to place a crown or veneer on the damaged tooth. This option for the black tooth treatment procedure involves removing the tooth’s surface and creating a brand-new whiter tooth cover that is custom-made to match the rest of your teeth and their shape. This option will provide an excellent result but is more expensive due to the use of high-quality materials and the time taken by the dentist and lab technician. Veneers start from £150 (composite) or £550 (porcelain).

In some cases, it is beneficial to undergo internal tooth bleaching followed by a veneer. To find out more about black teeth treatment, feel free to book your FREE consultation by calling or email us at [email protected].

Black Tooth Treatment Patient Story

“I injured my front tooth in primary school when I was about 10 years old. I run into one of my much taller, much bigger classmates! I was taken to the dentist almost immediately after it happened as my lip was massively swollen, however, there was too much swelling to see the full extent of the damage, but the dentist suspected I had killed the nerve and would need a root canal. A few weeks later I had the root canal done. My front tooth began discolouring a few days after the accident and continued to get darker until it became a very noticeable dark grey colour. I didn’t have any Black tooth treatment at the time, but it didn’t really bother me as I was so young. It was only in later years when I was about 15 years old that it really started to bother me, especially when I got my braces off which made the darkened tooth even more noticeable, as up to this it was partially covered by the brace itself

I had internal tooth bleaching done when I was about 13 years old and on holiday in New York, as my mum’s friend is a dentist there. The results of this black tooth treatment were good but as I was only able to make it to 2 out of the 3 recommended sessions, the tooth began to discolour again within a few years. When I was around 17 years old I had more Black tooth treatment, this time a whitening kit that I used at home for 2 weeks. The results of this were good but not perfect and again this only lasted a few years.

In recent years, the discolouration of my front tooth has really bothered me and is something I particularly noticed in photographs. It was the first thing my eye was drawn to anytime I saw a photograph of myself. Thanks to years of Orthodontics, I finally have nice straight teeth that I’m delighted with and take very good care of, however, all of this I felt was overshadowed by my grey front tooth. It made me very self-conscious and paranoid about my smile, despite the fact that the rest of my teeth were healthy.

The results from the internal tooth bleaching treatment carried out by Dr Chetan and his colleagues have been amazing. There has been a massive improvement in the colour of my front tooth and I no longer notice it in pictures. I’m delighted with the results and would recommend this procedure to anyone with the same problem as me, who like me do not want to go down the road of a crown or veneer.”

Many thanks to Dr.Chetan and his colleagues!!

Black Teeth Treatment FAQs

How can you avoid having dark tooth treatment?

Black tooth treatment is popular option since the symptoms aren’t very pleasing to look at. As symptoms worsen, it can result in further issues below the gum line and other problems. Good dental hygiene regimes are a preventable measure for dental problems during your life time. The same is said for after dark tooth treatment. The following tips can help lower the chances of it happening again:

  • Use mouthwash daily – black teeth caused by stains and the build-up of tartar, plaque and other temporary marks can be alleviated by using mouthwash and special whitening chewing gums.
  • Boost oral hygiene by brushing teeth properly and flossing regularly. Children will benefit from education regarding this
  • Take care of your gums. Many focus on problems with teeth, but unhealthy gums can cause many dental issues too.

Are black teeth a sign of oral cancer?

Black teeth are not usually a sign of oral cancer. However, if they are accompanied by other dark patched and spots on the cheek, then it is advised to see a specialist dentist as soon as possible to investigate these symptoms further.

Are black teeth a sign of Addison’s disease?

Addison’s disease is an endocrine disorder that causes a darkening of the gums due to hyperpigmentation. However, a black tooth with normal gums is not a common sign of Addison’s disease. Other symptoms of the condition include vitiligo, nausea, vomiting, weight loss abdominal pain and certain behavioural disorders. If you have any of these symptoms, you should consult a doctor.
