Assesses the color change of dentin and determines whether the color change was uniform or occurred from the outside to the inside using at-home bleaching with carbamide peroxide solution. Increase in lightness for the inner and outer dentinal areas; Uniformity in the rate of change; Type of stain as a factor in determining bleaching success.

    There has been recent concern about the inadvertent exposure of dentin with patent tubules as well as gingiva to bleaching systems containing 10-15% carbamide perox- ide or 2-10% hydrogen peroxide for more than a few minutes. The aims of the present study were: (1) to determine the cytotoxicity...

    This in situ study evaluated the influence of two home-use tooth bleaching regimes (1 hour/day and 7 hours/day) using 10% carbamide peroxide (Nite White Excel 2Z) on the surface microhardness of dentin over a 21-day period. Nine blocks of dentin derived from the teeth of subjects, each with at...
