Deep cleaning, polishing along with whitening (bleaching) procedures and / or artificial enamel cause of discoloration – smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, aging, staining food (wine, blueberry, etc) genetics. The regularly through good oral hygiene practices. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment.
Get scaling polishing done by the periodontist than brush twice daily especially at night.
If there is a deep cavity below which is swollen gums .. kindly get an x-ray done for the same so as to look at situation better .. rest you may apply a gum. Paint and massage your gums with ..
Swollen gums discharging pus could either be a tooth infection that is discharging as a sinus, gum boil due to something stuck in gums (eg small fishbone) or localised gum infection due to calculus. Either way, an x-ray of the area will help. As for medication, I will not suggest taking random antibiotics without seeing a dentist first since the problem, if not recognised, will recur. Meanwhile a warm salt water gargle might help ease the pain a little.
