Whiten Your Teeth From the Inside Out

Sometimes a dark area in a tooth may be coming from the inside of your tooth. This happens when blood or other dark liquids leak into the inside of a tooth after a root canal.

We can use internal bleaching to whiten your tooth from the inside out. We drill a small hole and inject peroxide gel into the inner cavity of the tooth.

We leave the solution inside the tooth for a week while it seeps into the dentin (structure inside the enamel), lightening the color of the tooth. Next, we drain the gel from the tooth and fill the hole.

This method of internal bleaching works very well, and your tooth will be significantly whiter. If you notice internal stains, please contact our office to find out if internal bleaching is the best option for you.
