Tooth Whitening has become easy, rewarding and profitable. New systems are being brought to market at a dizzying pace. Should I do a chairside or take-home bleaching? Do the over-the-counter whitening products work and how do I incorporate them into my clinical practice? What about a combination of chairside and take-home? Are they worth it? In this webinar we will review the different systems on the market as well as those on the horizon. The pros and cons of bleaching will be covered. The use of different light sources to speed up the whitening process will be evaluated. Issues of sensitivity, mechanism of action and longevity will be discussed. We will also discuss ways to prevent caries so you can keep your white teeth! Material in this lecture will rely on scientific evidence from the literature as well from our own clinical experience.
