After the root canal, your teeth usually become much darker than the rest of your natural teeth. The root canal teeth can be whitened by a special technique known as internal or non-vital whitening without using of veneers or crowns. Discoloration is removed by applying a bleaching agent to the teeth enamel. The most popular and safest agent used nowadays is sodium perborate. When mixed with hydrogen peroxide, sodium perborate makes the teeth significantly whiter. In case of severe discoloration, it is safe to mix sodium perborate with a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide. Sometimes, several follow-up treatments are necessary to reach the white color you need.
Teeth whitening is not a one-time procedure. In order to get the desired result you may need more than one visit to a dentist. The effects of whitening procedure usually last about three years. However, this may vary depending from patient to patient. The effect is less visible if you are smoking and prefer products that can remain stain on the teeth.
After whitening, the teeth and gums usually feel cleaner. For at least 3 weeks after the dental procedure, you need to stay away from drinks that stain your teeth. You can help your teeth to stay white by trying to use a straw to drink your coffee, try to brush right after drinking glass wine, and other sugary food and drinks that stain your teeth. Smoking and chewing tobacco should be avoided as well. We recommend to brush your teeth regularly with a fluoride toothpaste and visit your dentists for checkups.
