Discolored Teeth

Diagnosing and Treating Discolored Teeth in Dogs & Cats

Discolored teeth are an indication of a problem that may require treatment. Some potential causes are blunt trauma that results in bleeding within the tooth, internal resorption, exposure to certain medications at a young age, or excessive tooth wear. Discolored teeth may be non-vital and can be painful or even abscessed. Diagnostic imaging is used to determine the best treatment options for discolored teeth.
