Aesthetic Considerations At Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry

What Is Internal Bleaching?

An infection of the dental pulp can give the tooth a darkened, discolored appearance on the outside. Regular whitening procedures cannot treat this kind of discoloration, which is why Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry offers internal bleaching, a method of whitening a tooth from the inside out. After a root canal is performed to remove the infected pulp, a safe Whitening paste is placed inside the tooth to break down stains from previous decay and give the tooth a whiter color.

How Is Internal Bleaching Different Than Other Teeth Whitening Treatments?

As the name suggests, internal bleaching is for the inside of the tooth. Normal whitening options, such as toothpastes, rinses, and whitening gels only affect the outside of the tooth. Internal bleaching offered at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry can improve your oral health and restore that bright, happy smile!

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
