Lighten Your Discolored Teeth

Discoloration of the tooth can occur before or after root canal treatment, and it may cause patients to be unhappy with their smile’s appearance. Thankfully, our team can lend a helping hand! Internal bleaching involves the temporary placement of a safe oxidizing agent within the tooth in order to gradually lessen the discoloration. Depending on the severity of the dark color (and because the agent’s effectiveness decreases over time), this process might need to be repeated two or three times.
