This article describes a simple but effective method of bleaching single vital discolored teeth. The patient applies a viscous 10% carbamide peroxide gel in a plastic mouthguard designed to confine the gel only to the discolored tooth. This method has been effective for lightening vital teeth with calcified pulpal spaces.
