Abstract

Bleaching is an effective method of whitening teeth. It is not predictable and has a sufficient history of adverse effects to warrant concern by the profession. Above all, procedures used in dental practice should preserve and protect the oral tissues environment. To date the clinical safety of bleaching has not been demonstrated. Most of the published research indicates that there should be concern for its safety when used in prolonged treatment.
