What is Internal Tooth Bleaching?

Internal Tooth Bleaching is a dental procedure designed to lighten the color of a tooth from within. It is typically performed on teeth that have become discolored due to factors such as trauma, root canal treatment, or certain medications. Unlike traditional teeth whitening methods that focus on external stains, internal bleaching targets discoloration from the inside of the tooth.

Benefits of Internal Tooth Bleaching

There are various benefits of internal tooth bleaching, including:

  • Improved Aesthetics: Internal bleaching can significantly enhance the appearance of discolored teeth, restoring their natural white shade.
  • Minimally Invasive: This procedure is relatively non-invasive compared to other cosmetic dental treatments, preserving the structure of the tooth.
  • Customizable Results: Dr. Petrosky can adjust the bleaching agent’s concentration to achieve the desired level of whitening, providing personalized results for each patient.

Candidacy for Internal Tooth Bleaching

Internal tooth bleaching may be ideal for those with:

  • Internal tooth discoloration due to trauma, root canal treatment, or certain medications.
  • Healthy teeth and gums who are looking to improve the appearance of specific discolored teeth.

Internal Tooth Bleaching Process


Your Tuckerton dentist will examine your teeth to determine the cause and extent of discoloration and assess your candidacy for internal bleaching.


The tooth or teeth to be treated will be isolated using a rubber dam to protect the surrounding gums and tissues.

Placement of Bleaching Agent

A bleaching agent, typically hydrogen peroxide, is placed inside the tooth and left for a specific period.


In some cases, a special light or heat may be used to activate the bleaching agent and enhance its effectiveness.


Dr. Petrosky will monitor the bleaching process and may repeat the procedure until the desired level of whitening is achieved.

Aftercare Tips

To maintain the results following the internal tooth bleaching procedure, you must follow these essential steps:

  • Avoid Staining Foods and Beverages: Minimize consumption of dark-colored foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine to prevent staining.
  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to prevent new stains from forming and maintain the results of the bleaching treatment.
  • Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular dental check-ups to monitor the health of your teeth and discuss any concerns with your dentist.
