Have you ever notice someone who has a very obvious discoloured front tooth? If yes, did it distract you to look at it and somehow disturb your focus in getting in the real topic of communication with that person? I predict majority of the answer…
I’m sure a lot of us have seen old fillings that don’t look so nice anymore, right?
Well for this patient of mine, he’s annoyed at the sight of his old filling. Plus, his tooth had somewhat become darker in shade, looking slightly blackish.
This is what we call a discoloured, non-vital (dead) tooth.

Another option is to mask the discolouration with a composite veneer. Although internal bleaching will give a more natural look and is less invasive, after discussing with the patient, he decided to proceed with a composite veneer.
Within an hour, the old filling was removed and replaced with a composite veneer.
It’s definitely not perfect considering the limitations, but it sure does look a lot better!
He loved how his smile had improved, and left the clinic feeling much better about his smile.
Small changes do make a difference!
