Incisors can sometimes become discolored due to trauma. In most cases, the trauma involves complicated fractures of dentin and enamel that necessitates immediate restorative treatment. In some cases, the trauma is minor and does not involve any structural damage to the tooth. In these cases, the pulp tissue reacts to the trauma, causing discoloration. In the following two cases involving anterior teeth, there were no changes visible at the apex of the incisor. We assumed that the pulp tissue remained vital to some degree and was able to react in several ways to the trauma. In both cases, we saw a change in color of a central incisor, combined with an irregularity in the position of the anterior teeth. The patients involved both explicitly wished to alter the color of the darker incisor in order to restore the harmony of their smiles.
