Lightin’ Up | Dente Complete Dentistry

Lightin’ Up

We see a lot of patients during the year. Many of them have had a root canal (Removal of infection inside the tooth) procedure, at some point.

Sometimes, these root canals will cause the tooth to darken.

If it’s a back tooth, no big deal. It’s very easy to disguise. But with a front tooth, the discoloration could cause embarrassment and make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Many people will even avoid smiling because they don’t want people seeing their discolored tooth.

Sometimes it’s recommended to place a crown or a veneer over the discolored tooth.

Even with these restorations, the discoloration could bleed through, and the grayness or darkness is still visible.

I prefer to bleach the tooth from the inside, to whiten up the tooth. I feel that it’s a more conservative approach, that doesn’t require as much tooth structure to be removed, and I believe it looks more natural.

A few weeks ago, we performed an internal bleaching procedure on one our patients. I would like to show you the patient’s results. She was very happy with the final results, and I was very happy as well.

If you or someone you care about, has a discolored tooth and would like to receive some cosmetic options, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911 to schedule a consultation today!

Emilio “Brighten Your Smile” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
