Internal Teeth Bleaching

Internal teeth bleaching is an endodontic procedure that is used to lighten the color of a tooth that has become discolored due to trauma, decay, or root canal treatment. The procedure involves accessing the pulp chamber of the tooth, cleaning out any remaining debris or infection, and then placing a bleaching agent inside the tooth to lighten the color. The bleaching agent is typically left in place for a period of several days, after which the tooth is sealed with a permanent filling or crown to prevent further discoloration.

Internal teeth bleaching is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, but it is not appropriate for all patients. In some cases, the discoloration may be too severe or the tooth may be too structurally compromised to undergo bleaching. Additionally, patients with allergies or sensitivities to bleaching agents may not be good candidates for the procedure. Patients considering internal teeth bleaching should consult with their dentist or endodontist to determine if the procedure is right for them, and to discuss the potential risks and benefits.
