Teeth Whitening: Case 1
This young lady came in seeking a solution for the very dark tooth in the front of her mouth. As is often the case she asked if veneers were the best way to solve her problem. Time was a consideration because she was going to be in her sister’s wedding in a few weeks. While a crown or veneers were an option cost was a factor and she also desired to have all of her teeth whitened. The dark tooth needed root canal treatment in any case so the most expedient and cost effective way to achieve her goal was to do the root canal and then bleach that tooth from the inside out while also whitening the rest of her teeth with at-home whitening. Timing was not a problem, the cost was minimized and we did not have to try to match a single veneer or crown to her natural dentition which is often difficult to achieve. What we did was, other than the root canal, totally non-invasive. She later showed me photos from the wedding and told me how many people marveled at her bright new smile.
