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.
