The method used for bleaching teeth in the office depend on whether your teeth have undergone root canal therapy. Teeth that have received this treatment are termed nonvital because they have had the nerves removed. If you’ve never had root canal therapy: The dentist will isolate the teeth being treated,which protects the gums from discomfort and irritation. The outside of the teeth will be coated with a chemical solution and may be exposed to heat or light for about 20-30 mints. If you have received root canal therapy: The root canal will be reopened, a bleaching solution placed inside, and the canal resealed with the temporary feeling. Heat or light can be used at the dental office to accelerate the whitening process. The bleaching agent will be removed when you and your dentist determine that you’ve achieved the desired tooth shade.
