Internal Teeth Bleaching

Internal teeth bleaching techniques (also called “walking bleaching”) are used, many times, after a dental patient undergoes a root canal. The root canal procedure causes blood to flow into the pulp of certain teeth, leaving them discolored. Internal teeth bleaching involves:

Drilling a small entry hole into the pulp chamber of the tooth;

Cleaning the pulp chamber;

Filling the canal of the root with a substance that seals it;

Filling the pulp chamber with a hydrogen peroxide solution;

Sealing the hole up;

Replacing the solution as needed until the internal bleaching of the dentin layer is complete;

Of course, there are several non-office teeth bleaching products and techniques you can try too. These are generally not as effective as having the services performed professionally, however they can and do make appreciable improvements in appearance. Some of the more popular at-home teeth whitening products include:

Teeth bleaching pens;

Whitening strips & gels;

Bleaching chewing gums and toothpastes;

Home light bleaching kits;

And some people also utilize natural teeth whitening techniques like eating green apples, brushing with lemon juice, brushing with peroxide or baking soda and others. Care should always be used when attempting to bleach teeth at home. For instance, too much lemon juice, peroxide or baking powder can cause damage to the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth and throat. Choose your teeth bleaching method carefully and always consult your dental professional before making your choice.
