Milford Dentists uses both "in surgery" & "at home" tooth Whitening to lighten upper & lower teeth. The most effective tooth lightening process is combining both of the above. Please contact us & ask our Dental Hygienist Karen Hobbs for treatment details.
Sometimes a dead or root filled tooth will darken on its own leaving a "black" tooth.
Is it possible to lighten a ‘dead’ discoloured tooth?
Yes. This process involves placing a lightening agent into the body of the “dead” root filled tooth for 7 days. This process is often very successful making further cosmetic work unnecessary.
The photo below shows a slightly yellow chipped central incisor. The image will below displays that this tooth started life a lot darker after discolouring when it became non vital. Our plan here was to place a Porcelain Veneer the tooth after internal tooth lightening but the patient was so happy with the improved appearance she opted to not proceed with the veneer.
