A dark tooth indicates some type of trauma. There are possibly two choices. you will possibly need root canal therapy with placement of a crown or simply a crown placement. You can only be sure by visiting a dentist for the proper treatment.

Why would a tooth turn dark in color?

It is possible to have a tooth turn dark because there was no permanent tooth underneath. Mine was a baby tooth and all I was ever told by any dentist was, "You have a baby tooth, with no tooth under it, so I'd recommend leaving it alone unless it gives you problems." It remained and was a healthy tooth until my mid forties. At that time several teeth weakened but I was told that was due to chemotherapy and heavy medications, so the discolored or dark tooth may have lasted longer without the other complications.

How long can a tooth stay in your mouth after the nerve has been removed?

If the nerve has been removed in your tooth, you need to have a root canal done in order to keep your tooth in your mouth. A tooth that has had a root canal treatment and ideally a crown as well, has about 85% chances of staying in your mouth for the rest of your life.
