Abstract

There are three basic classes of materials and techniques used for the bleaching of vital teeth. These include the in-office bleaching technique with 35 percent hydrogen peroxide, the Nightguard vital bleaching technique with 10 percent carbamide peroxide, and the over-the-counter bleaching kits with three-to-six percent hydrogen peroxide. The most popular of these techniques is Nightguard vital bleaching, also referred to as dentist-prescribed, home-applied bleaching. This article looks at the current status of the Nightguard vital bleaching technique, with a special emphasis on the clinical aspects of the treatment, along with the most commonly asked questions concerning the procedure. It would still appear than this form of dentist-prescribed, home-applied bleaching, when preceded by a proper examination and correct diagnosis, applied with a properly fitted prosthesis, and monitored as needed by a dentist, is as safe as other accepted dental procedures or commonly ingested foodstuffs.
