HOW IS TETRACYCLINE STAINS TREATED?
There are a variety of ways to treat tetracycline stained teeth depending on the severity of the staining. The most conservative is bleaching the tooth. If the tooth has undergone root canal treatment, it may be more effective to use an internal bleaching technique where the dentist puts a bleach inside the tooth to bleach it from the inside out. Another treatment option is putting veneers (a thin layer of tooth-colored porcelain) over the teeth. The most drastic treatment would be to cut around the whole tooth and put an aesthetic crown over the tooth.
DID YOU KNOW?
Even though it is not a serious issue, Tetracycline Stains are a source of embarrassment and gradually develop into infections.
Tetracycline is an antibiotic used to treat a number of bacterial infections which is commonly used to treat acne. But due to the presence of tetracycline certain infections in pregnant mothers can cause tooth discoloration in the infant by affecting enamel development and also known to discolour teeth when given to children whose teeth are still developing (before age 8) thus staining the teeth to a green, grey or brown in color, these deep, dark stains either cover the entire tooth or appear as a pattern of horizontal stripes as tetracycline is easily absorbed by the bones. But there is hope for those who suffer from tetracycline stains as Veneers are used to cover stained teeth in the front of the mouth. During the procedure, the dental veneers are cemented to your teeth, providing a permanent solution to the staining dilemma. If a back tooth appears particularly dark, a dental crown can be used to cap its surface and cover the tooth entirely. Other than this prevention is the best medicine if you visit the dentist every six months, so that he can provide a proper solution to the dental ailment. Although tetracycline is still prevalent, special measures are taken to prevent tetracycline stains. Due to the complications tetracycline produces, doctors no longer prescribe it to young children or expectant mothers. If you are pregnant, be sure to tell your doctor and dentist so they can treat you accordingly.
