So about 5 years ago I was carjacked. The guy beat me up really badly. Anyway, my front tooth was cracked in half. The dentist did a root canal and sealed it I think. Well, he told me it'd turn one day.
I dont have dental insurance. Im not sure what to do. How much it would cost, etc. Advise?

Im not sure but dd fell and hit her front tooth and is is now discoloured and the dentist said that if it bothered me so much, they now have white fillings that he could do. Its only her baby tooth so we aren't too worried but that may be something to ask about. Or veneers.

Lol i just posted after you. Same thing happened to DS. His dentist said since its not causing any pain, to just leave it alone. Otherwise she'd have to pull it out. I didn't even know they discolored that way from a hard hit

I've had a root canal, and the dentist told me the only thing to do if I didn't like the color change was to get a cap put on it. I don't have insurance either, so for the time being, I'm just dealing with it.
