What Is Internal Bleaching?
Internal bleaching is a tooth whitening process used specifically for teeth that have become discolored from the inside, often due to injury, disease, or previous root canal treatments. Unlike traditional whitening procedures that whiten teeth from the outside, internal bleaching works from within the tooth. This involves placing a safe, effective bleaching agent inside the tooth to remove discoloration and restore the tooth’s natural appearance.
Who Needs Internal Bleaching?
Internal bleaching is usually recommended for patients who have undergone a root canal procedure and have noticed a subsequent darkening of the treated tooth. It can also be used for teeth that have been discolored due to injury or trauma, causing internal bleeding that stains the tooth from the inside. If you have a tooth that has become discolored internally and it’s affecting your smile, internal bleaching could be an ideal solution.
The Internal Bleaching Procedure
The internal bleaching procedure is relatively straightforward and is carried out in a few steps:
- Access preparation: The endodontist will create a small opening in the back of the discolored tooth.
- Bleaching agent application: A safe, effective bleaching agent is then placed inside the tooth, and the opening is temporarily sealed.
- Bleaching period: The bleach is left in the tooth for a period ranging from 30 minutes to a few days. During this time, it effectively lightens the tooth’s color.
- Final assessment: You’ll return to the office, and if the desired level of whitening has been achieved, the bleach is removed, and the opening is permanently sealed.
The Benefits Of Internal Bleaching
Internal bleaching offers several benefits. It can significantly improve the appearance of a discolored tooth, helping to restore your confident smile. This procedure is minimally invasive and is usually completed in a couple of visits, making it a quick solution for internal tooth discoloration. Additionally, with good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, the results of internal bleaching can last for several years, giving you a brighter, whiter smile for the long term.
