Dental Restorations

Dental procedures like crowns or fillings and even root canal treatments can sometimes cause a tooth to appear grayish. Our findings show that the materials used in these restorations can react with the tooth, leading to discoloration.

Dead Teeth

A tooth can turn gray if its nerve is damaged or dead. This can happen due to decay or injury. But don't fret! There are ways to treat and even prevent this, like using SNOW's over-the-counter whitening products to whiten a dead tooth.

Dental Trauma
