“Treatment of the Single Dark Tooth, Internally and Externally”
Restorative indications for anterior endodontically-treated teeth have changed, prompting a new interest in bleaching. Single dark teeth have some new bleaching options and materials, and the treatment options vary whether vital or non-vital. Esthetic evaluations, bonding insights, and special tray fabrication designs will be explained.
Attendees will learn:
1. The external bleaching treatment options for single dark teeth that have not received endodontic therapy, vital and non-vital.
2. The internal treatment options for non-vital teeth that have received endodontic therapy recently or in the past.
3. The bonding techniques for restoration of endodontic access openings for root color, and tray fabrication techniques for bleaching.
