Abstract

Enamel microabrasion and carbamide peroxide-dentist supervised home applied dental bleaching are conservative methods of improving the appearance of teeth. Children and teens can benefit from these procedures. This article describes the step-by-step clinical technique of enamel microabrasion and a protocol for custom-tray-applied, home tooth-bleaching. Representative case histories are documented with photographs.
