At-Home Bleaching: A 25-Year Retrospective

Description:
The concept of at-home bleaching self-administered by the patient and supervised by the dentist became widely known in the profession about 25 years. At the time, little was known about bleaching except that application of a peroxide-based gel to the teeth could substantially lighten them in 4-6 weeks. Since then, a large volume of laboratory and clinical research have greatly expanded and enhanced our understanding of the process. This presentation provides a brief summary of what we have learned over the last 25 years, including how bleaching works and how long it lasts, safety issues, side effects such as tooth sensitivity, effects on teeth and materials, extended uses for bleaching, and over-the-counter options.
