Treatment and esthetic management of traumatized maxillary central incisors with endodontic therapy and the inside/outside bleaching technique: A clinical report


      Traumatic dental injuries most commonly occur to the maxillary central incisors, occasionally resulting in tooth discoloration and prompting affected patients to seek dental treatment. Other negative sequelae of trauma to teeth include root resorption that can complicate definitive treatment planning to manage discoloration. This article describes the conservative esthetic management of discolored traumatized teeth through the inside/outside bleaching technique after endodontic therapy for external inflammatory root resorption.
