Single Tooth Internal Bleaching
A tooth that has had endodontic treatment may become discolored due to blood or other fluids that have seeped in and stained the internal structure of the tooth. To whiten the tooth from the inside out, the most common method of bleaching is called The Walking Bleach method. In this procedure, a small hole is made in the tooth and a safe bleaching paste is placed in the pulp chamber. Depending on the degree of the stain, the paste may need to be replaced until desired results are achieved and the hole permanently sealed.
