Internal Bleaching Napa
Internal bleaching is a technique that is used to whiten the appearance of teeth. Unlike over-the-counter solutions that are used to whiten teeth, internal bleaching is conducted under the direction of a dentist. Because the treatment requires invasive action, it is important that a professional conduct the tooth bleaching in a controlled environment.
The process for an internal bleaching involves the insertion of a chemical oxidizing agent into the tooth. Once the series of treatments are complete, the hole is filled, ensuring that foreign matter will not be able to invade the tooth and cause other problems.
Not everyone is a candidate for internal bleaching. Napa Dentist Dr. Hoey will evaluate the degree of staining and discoloration that is present. Dr. Hoey of Napa Valley Dental Care determines that the use of external bleaching treatments or over-the-counter products will achieve the results, he will not recommend an internal bleaching series.
