We’ve all fallen, but what would you decide to do if your damage your tooth during the fall? Typically, if you notice a chip or if your tooth falls out, you should visit your dentist. But, what should you do if your tooth turns black? Naturally, you should still go to your dentist. They will be able to provide you with a few options.

For instance, your dentist could recommend covering the tooth. Typically, this will mean either a dental crown or a veneer. Both of these treatments are matched to the shape and color of your tooth, and designed to restore your smile to a natural look. Your dentist may lean more towards a crown if you need to support your teeth.

Your teeth have three layers—enamel, dentin, and pulp. Your outer layer, the enamel, is translucent. Sadly, this means that if you have stains inside your tooth, they will be visible through your enamel. In fact, it will look like your enamel itself is stained. This means that removing stained pulp restore your pearly whites.
