Historically, dentistry has been concerned with the quest for a “beautiful smile“. Vital tooth bleaching, a treatment capable of altering the value and chroma of teeth, is gaining popularity. Bleaching therapy offers a conservative, non-invasive treatment, which can, for some patients, negate the need for crowns or porcelain veneers. It is defined as the application of oxidizing agents to the external surfaces of teeth to alter their shade, resulting in a more esthetically pleasing appearance. Materials, methods, and clinical examples to augment any dentist's present methods of vital bleaching are presented in this course.
