Internal Bleaching

Internal Bleaching

After a root canal procedure, you may notice that your tooth becomes darker over time. Why does this happen? During the root canal procedure, pulp tissue is removed from the canals inside the roots. Dentin, which comprises most of the tooth is no longer living and tends to darken over time. Internal bleaching is a treatment that can be done to bleach the root canal. Ultimately, this process will help your discolored tooth return to a normal color. Internal bleaching is a safe and more conservative option when compared to veneers or crowns.
