Q: Discolored teeth are caused by what?
Trauma to a tooth can cause discoloration, but there are many possible causes. Teeth might discolor when exposed to certain medicines during development, or a serious illness during tooth development can discolor areas of teeth. Poor oral hygiene, especially during orthodontic work, can also lead to discoloration.
Q: What can you do about chipped or broken teeth?
The original shape of chipped or broken teeth can be restored with bonding or cementing tooth colored veneers to the affected teeth. This costs less than crowns and can be done without much preparation. A confident smile will be the result of the natural appearance of teeth.
