|Abstract:||Discolouration of teeth is a commonly seen dental problem which may affect not only facial aesthetics but also patient's self-image and psychological profile. There is an increasing awareness of such discolouration which may be localised or generalised. Restoration and improvement of this clinical problem has also improved with newer clinical techniques and better dental materials. The aetiology of discolouration is considered first, as this forms the basis of treatment modality to be selected. Management principles should clearly be considered with emphasis on patient input and acceptance. This has been enhanced with computer-aided projection of treatment results. The range of treatment modalities has been widened so that each specific problem can be treated with a method which improves final prognosis. The treatment methods are outlined with clinical cases presented as examples.|
