The 3 ways teeth can break are:

a> Traumatic accident such as a sports injury. Emergency advice here.

b> Decay, which weakens the tooth.

c> Breakdown from previous dental restorations. If your fillings are repeatedly breaking, perhaps a different material will provide more strength. Porcelain or Gold onlays or crowns are very strong.

Toothache can result from any of these breakages, or leakage of the filling. Toothache can also originate in the gums. Loose teeth are a result of gum disease.

If the dark colour of your tooth is your concern, perhaps the nerve has died.
