I felt that yesterday I had just patched two front teeth because they were perforated and they were already black, but a week before I had treated the root canal of one front tooth because I had a toothache. after root canal treatment, my two front teeth were patched on Tuesday yesterday. but one day after being patched, my teeth turned a very deep yellow color. why is that? because what turns yellow is the tooth that gets root canal treatment. what should i do?

Hi ega,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Tooth decay will become black because of its reduced density and also due to the presence of bacteria and food scraps that accumulate and cause tissue damage. This condition needs to be treated further, one of them is by patching. If the hole in the tooth is deep enough to reach the root of the tooth (pulp) and cause inflammation or infection, then the doctor needs to do root canal treatment first. After root canal treatment, the doctor will usually do a temporary patch on cavities, then continue with permanent patches if it feels without inflammation and the infection has improved.


If proper care is taken, dental fillings can generally last for 6 to 8 years. However, the resistance of these dental fillings can vary greatly depending on many factors, including efforts to maintain oral hygiene, the type of food and drink consumed, smoking habits, and so on. This condition is likely to make your teeth patches turn yellow. Not only that, some types of materials used to patch cavities are also slightly yellowish so they are not exactly the same color as healthy teeth.


To find out the cause of yellowing your fillings, and identify what kind of treatment is more appropriate to do, you should check directly to the nearest dentist, yes. With direct evaluation, the doctor can certainly give you the best treatment tailored to the condition of your teeth. To get a good patch, doctors can also direct you to do the installation of crowns (artificial crowns).


Hope this helps ...
