  • After the trauma to the tooth the pulp of the tooth becomes nonvital and that is why it is discolored. You can go for the root canal treatment of this tooth and then for the crown. If you do not want to go for the crown then you can go for the whitening of the tooth but ideally after root canal treatment crown is indicated as the tooth becomes brittle For more info on root canal treatment you can visit the follwoing linkhttp://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-root-canal-therapy-17.aspx
