With the move toward minimally invasive cosmetic dental treatments and the ever-expanding variety of tooth whitening products on the market today, external bleaching options are now able to afford the clinician with a predictable, safe, and effective means to lighten and brighten a patient’s natural dentition. Many of these products, such as low concentration carbamide peroxide, have additional revenue generating potential as an oral hygiene adjunct which can greatly assist many patients who are not necessarily interested in aesthetic enhancement. In part 1 of this 2-part series, Dr. Miles Cone will outline the most up-to-date bleaching materials, procedures, protocols, and dispel the myths that exist for the contemporary dental practice.
