Abstract

Introduction: Several factors can control the esthetics of a smile, including changes in the shape, texture, position and color of teeth. Currently, dental bleaching or tooth whitening is considered as one of the cosmetic dental procedures most frequently required by patients who seek a ‘‘perfect white smile”. The aim of this article was to review the techniques of dental bleaching including in-office, at-home and over-the-counter focusing on the agents applied, their concentrations and the time of treatment, and how these three factors can affect the success of dental bleaching.

Methodology: An internet search was done to review the articles published about the aim of our study. The search included different websites such as PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Science, etc.

Keywords: Dental Bleaching; Techniques; Agents; Concentrations; Time; Laser; White Smile
