The dramatic increase in public demand for esthetic dentistry and tooth bleaching has encouraged development and resulted in new products and eltasdeltaues. Vital tooth bleaching, including in-office bleaching and at-home bleaching, has been adopted as an effective and safe method for whitening natural dentition. Although most dentists prefer at-home bleaching, nearly one third use in-office bleaching. Continuous improvements in bleaching products and delivery systems have made in-office bleaching more practical and predictable. This article discusses the practical applications of vital tooth bleaching, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
