Heloo sir. If one of your teeth has turned black. The possible reason is tooth necrosis. Ie destruction of the normal blood flow to the tooth which results in blackish appearance of tooth with time. Mostly caused by trauma. But in some cases infection to the ttoth can also result in same. So treatmen t for this is. Root canal treatment followed by non vital bleaching procedure or rct + cap wish you best.
Teeth will turn black or brown due to previous impact of injury Which makes the pulp of the root non vital (dead) The treatment in such cases would be root canal and crown.
There may be some injury or some occlusion problem, the tooth needs root canal treatment asap.
