Typically, this is because of a structural defect within the tooth, an infected tooth, or because blood or other bodily fluids seeped into the tooth, perhaps due to impact during a sporting incident or other trauma.
Internal teeth bleaching is a method of whitening a tooth from the inside out. First, a root canal treatment is performed to remove any infected dental pulp.
Then, safe sodium perborate paste is placed deep inside the tooth. This material dissolves stain particles, making the teeth look whiter. After a root canal treatment, your tooth is sealed to prevent further damage.
Internal Teeth Bleaching Procedure
There are a lot of different types of whitening agents, and the dentist decides according to their preference. Some are light or heat-activated, while some whiten the teeth after some time. Sometimes the result is immediate while others the whitening agent may need replacement on a follow-up visit.
If an existing root canal is not in good enough shape, internal teeth bleaching should be avoided, unless a new root canal treatment can be carried out. The same goes for cases that have a minimal amount of healthy tooth structure or very large fillings.
Treatment usually results in teeth whiter in the middle and incisal part of the tooth. The lower third, that is located nearer to the gum line, is harder to whiten because of the increased width of dentin.
While internal teeth bleaching procedure can leave an affected tooth, several shades whiter, the results don’t last for a lifetime.
It’s possible to discolour the treated tooth, and other teeth, by eating and drinking foods that cause stains, such as coffee and tea.
By avoiding food and lifestyle choices that contribute to staining, you can help extend the results of treatment and continue enjoying your beautiful, white smile.
You can prevent instances of tooth decay and damage in healthy teeth by practising good oral health, such as regular brushing and flossing.
