Internal Bleaching Carmichael, CA
Whiten your teeth from the inside out.
Deep stains in root canal treated teeth can be treated with internal bleaching. In our office we can use internal bleaching to whiten the tooth from the inside out. We drill a small hole and insert a peroxide gel into the internal cavity of the tooth. The solution is left inside the tooth for about a week during which time it penetrates into the dentin (the structure underneath the enamel, lightening the tooth). Next the gel is drained from the tooth and the hole filled. This method of internal bleaching is highly effective, and the tooth will be significantly whiter. If you notice the appearance of internal stains, and think you may need internal bleaching please contact our office to determine whether it is the correct procedure for you.
