Vital Teeth Bleaching: Where are we? How to Increase the Success?

Bleaching therapy is one of the most frequently used methods in aesthetic rehabilitation of discolored teeth. The key to success in bleaching treatment is the appropriate case-specific approach in material and method selection. Although peroxide-containing agents are still frequently used in bleaching, new developments consistently occur in bleaching materials and methods, such as in all areas of dentistry. In this presentation, the materials, techniques and ways to improve the success of vital teeth bleaching will be explained with the help of clinical cases and literature.
