VIVA DENTAL STUDIO INTERNAL TOOTH WHITENING FOLLOWING ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
What is Internal Tooth Whitening?
Internal tooth whitening is bleaching of the tooth colour from within the tooth. It uses the centre part of the tooth where the blood supply is to whiten the tooth colour. The tooth would have had a root canal which is first sealed with a filling material.
Why does a tooth go dark?
Usually a tooth which is non vital (no bloody supply) will quickly start to discolour. Sometimes external tooth whitening (traditional whitening) does not whiten the tooth colour enough. Internal tooth whitening works on the deeper tooth structure and dentine.
Will the tooth remain white after internal tooth whitening?
There is a chance the tooth may discolour again in the future. Usually whitening externally can maintain the tooth colour and internal tooth whitening may not be needed again.
Is internal tooth whitening painful?
Internal tooth whitening is not painful. The nerve in the tooth has already gone and a root canal filling has been placed in the tooth.
