Internal Bleaching

It's possible that a tooth can undergo staining from within the tooth itself. Typically this is due to a structural defect within the tooth, a dying tooth, or because blood and other bodily fluids penetrated the tooth during prior root canal treatment. Regardless of the cause, it's possible to restore such a tooth to match the color of its adjacent teeth by bleaching the tooth from the inside-out – a process known as internal tooth bleaching. 

Internal bleaching is much different than whitening the outside of the tooth. Despite the general ease and affordability of the procedure, many aren’t even aware of the possibility to bleach teeth in such a manner, causing them to go years with stained teeth in their “smile-zone.” Studies show the procedure is safe and has good long-term results.

Endodontists specialize in oral trauma and are often able to save injured teeth.
