At Claremont Dental Practice, we carry out Enlighten tooth whitening which is the most effective whitening system in the world and proved to have a 98% success rate.
How it works
Step 1: Home session
For difficult or Tetracycline stained teeth, 3-4 weeks of home bleaching is recommended instead of 14 days before office bleaching is carried out.

What is internal bleaching?
Procedure of Internal bleaching
It is carried out normally in 3 sessions and in some cases, it might take longer. A rubber dam will be placed and the access cavity is opened, the root canal material will be reduced 2-3mm apical to the gum line and sealed with a sealer cement to protect the root filling material. Bleaching gel will be placed in the canal.
After packing the paste into the cavity, the access cavity is sealed tightly. After achieving a satisfactory result, the access cavity will be closed with plastic filling. The patient will be seen every week and the bleaching gel will be changed. Once the desired colour is achieved, the access cavity can be closed permanently.
Advantages of Internal bleaching
- Safe and effective.
- Quick and conservative.
- Cost effective compared to crowns and veneers.
- Quick result.
Disadvantages of Internal bleaching
- Patient should be compliant.
- Failure to seal the access cavity due to failure of patient attending the dental office can cause bacterial contamination.
- Cervical root resorption if bleach diffuses through cervical cementum and periodontal ligament.
