I have a single dark tooth. How do I fix this?

While a dark tooth is case dependent, we often see these on teeth that have root canals due to previous trauma. The dying nerve in the tooth gradually causes darkening of that single tooth. The great news is this is often easily treatable!

If you already have a root canal on your tooth, we can remove the previous filling and put bleach inside of the tooth. You will leave that day with a temporary filling, keeping the bleach inside for one week. During this time the bleach will work its magic! Sometimes this may need to be repeated once more for desired results. Once we get your tooth to the right shade we remove the bleach and place a new permanent filling in the tooth.

The past few months have been challenging for everyone; we are looking forward to a return to a new type of normalcy. We have officially been given the green light to re-open, and plan to resume seeing patients on June 11th. While I have cherished the extra time with my husband and 9 month old, I have missed my patients and doing what I love each day.

Over the past three months, I have spent long hours researching how to best prepare our office for a safe reopening. My number one priority is ensuring the health and safety of our patients and staff. I’d like to share some of our strategies for keeping our office clean and safe for all.
