Darkened tooth

Provided the tooth has no decay, Internal Bleaching may be an option. This is where a strong bleaching agent is placed in the canal where the root canal was done and left there for a week, the process may be repeated and then a light filling is placed in the access hole in the back. Ocassionally this is done in conjunction with home whitening.
