Individual, internal tooth bleaching can be a very effective method of lightening the appearance of unsightly dark shadowing on teeth that have been traumatized or root-filled in the past. The discolouration is usually caused by an internal bleed in the tooth, due to a hard knock to the tooth in the past.
The dark shade of the tooth can be significantly lightened by a few in-chair bleaching treatments. This involves a small access hole drilled into the back of the tooth, the removal of any stained deposits, and the tooth being packed with a special bleaching agent and sealed with a temporary filling. After a few visits a few days apart, the desired shade will be reached and the access hole permanently closed with a small filling.
All the teeth may also be bleached from the outside using the regular method involving a home application of bleach into individually moulded trays. Please call our helpful staff at Silas St Dental for more information, if so required.
