Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry. According to the FDA, whitening restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color. There are many methods available, such as brushing,
bleaching strips, bleaching pen, bleaching gel, and laser bleaching.
Teeth whitening has become the most requested procedure in cosmetic dentistry today.
Bleaching methods use carbamide peroxide which reacts with water or saliva to form hydrogen peroxide.
Carbamide peroxide has about a third of the strength of hydrogen
peroxide. This means that a 15% solution of carbamide peroxide is the
rough equivalent of a 5% solution of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide oxidizing agent penetrates the porosities in the rod-like crystal structure of enamel called the tubles and breaks down stain deposits in the dentin.

According to the American Dental Association,
different whitening methods include in-office bleaching, which is
applied by a professional dentist; at-home bleaching, which is used at

source for 15 minutes. Recent technical advances have minimized heat
emissions, allowing for a shorter patient preparation procedure. Most
power teeth whitening treatments can be done in approximately 30 minutes
to one hour, in a single visit to a dental physician.
Internal bleaching procedures are performed on devitalized teeth or a Dead Tooth that have undergone endodontic treatment
(Root Canal) but are discolored due to internal staining of
the tooth structure. Unlike
external bleaching, which brightens teeth from the outside in, internal
bleaching brightens teeth from the inside out.
Side effects of teeth bleaching include, but are not limited to:
- Chemical burns from gel bleaching sensitive teeth.
- Pain for "sensitive teeth" caused by open dentinal tubules.
- Risk of increased hot/cold sensitivity.
