I have a grey front tooth, due to a dentist missing a problem, which is also overlapping my other front tooth. I’m wondering what procedure would be recommended to straighten and whiten it. I’ve heard of extraction and a fake one screwed in and was wondering about an estimated price as I’m on benefits and it’s affecting my smile and meeting new people as I don’t like it at all. Please, is there any way I could sort this problem out in a cheap and effective way?

Hi Dr Moore,
I had a root canal done 3 three years ago and then my tooth became orange/grey.
I would like to know if internal bleaching is a good option as my tooth has not discoloured that much and I am not interested in a crown so far. In regards to veneers I was told that I have to have it done on my 2 front teeth and I do not like this option as one of these teeth is totally healthy.
I am looking to find a dentist that could do it. Could you also tell me how much it would cost?
I hope to hear from you.
I’ve Been Checked Over Recently And Since Then I Noticed One Of My Gums Was A Blueish, Grey Colour. What Has Caused This?Friday, January 3rd, 2014
I’ve just been to the dentist to get my teeth checked and cleaned. No apparent issues. I noticed since then one of gums is a really blueish, grey colour.
It was a little off colour after I got a veneer years ago but seemed to improve now it’s really noticeable and I feel really embarrassed over it. I don’t smoke and if it was gum disease, surely my dentist would have told me. What should I do? Do you know what could be causing this? Thanks.
Hello Dr Moore, I’d like to tell the problem I have recently really been struggling with. I am Thirty-Nine and had fastbraces for six months last year with elastics from top to bottom. During treatment I had to stop wearing the elastics on one tooth which was not wired down to the others as I was in agony with the tooth being pulled up and out. I told the dentist at the time and he said it would settle back down. Now six months after treatment which was otherwise successful this tooth is noticeably grey – I really don’t know what I should do? – I have totally healthy teeth otherwise, Thank you, I really hope you can help me sort this problem out.
I had two lava bridges placed on my front teeth earlier this year because I was missing a tooth on either side (they never grew in). The bridge on the left side looks perfect but the one on the right has started to look slightly grey. I am very careful about taking care of my teeth everyday. What would cause this and can it be corrected? The other thing I have noticed since the bridge on the right was placed is that it doesn’t feel like it is on the tooth right. I can feel a small part of my tooth between the bridge and my gum line. Could this be the cause?
My teeth are yellow, and one is grey. I do not know why or what is happening. I am 41 and cannot afford any dental treatment. I have not had a check up in around 22yearsand some have started to become loose and fall out. Please help me!
When I was 14 I had my braces removed which caused my front tooth to die and go grey. After having bleaching done, then follwing a root canal, I had a veneer- I’m now 24 and the veneer looks grey again.
My question is, What is the best option, to replace it with a crown, lumineer or another veneer. I’m also having my teeth whitened.
The front tooth looks ok in some light but when I take a look in a shadowy area, and quite away from the mirror- thats when I notice it more. Please help!!
i have been quoted £389 for a veneer on my upper right incisor. I had root canal on the tooth and now it has started to turn grey. Do you think that is a good price for the work and is a porcelain veneer my best option?
My 17 year old son got his braces off in May and one tooth has turned gray. He wore the braces for 2 years and orthodontist said the tooth may have been traumatized by the braces. We’ve had the tooth tested and it’s not dead, but it’s top 2nd from center and my son has finally admitted that he’s self conscious about it and would like to have it fixed. Our regular dentist has indicated that there is no good way to make the tooth look right. What do you suggest?
Is there a chance my root canal could fail in the long run, would veneers stress my teeth and does dentist experience really matter?Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010
Hello Dr Caplan I had root canal on one of my front tooth in Jan this year, and unfortunatlly it had gone grey. I went to a cosmatic dentist who suggested 2nd root canal, internal bleaching and porcelain crown for this tooth. At the same time I was interested in getting 3 vaneers put on my other 3 front teeth to achieve max cosmatic result. So my questions are.. 1) Is there a likelyhood for me to lose my grey tooth down the road after all these treatment s?! 2) does having the vaneers done on my other teeth “stress” the teeth?! Could it result in root canal afterward?! 3) I had been to couple cosmatic dentist. One is very well known and has lots of experience.. however he also charges 3 times what other dentist charges… Do you think that experience and techniques play a big part of the successof my teeth or is it more like chances ?! (losing my grey tooth or not down the road) thank you,
