COURSE DESCRIPTION

Bleaching procedures provide a minimally invasive solution for esthetic dentistry, and have changed treatment options in achieving optimal, natural looking outcomes for patients.  There are many different materials and techniques available to accomplish this task, from over-the-counter to in-office delivery systems.  In-office systems have been an attractive option for the patients and practitioners seeking immediate results. However, there are many draw backs to in-office systems that have lead practitioners to move away from this option.  These changes within the profession have motivated manufacturers to develop alternative approaches to provide a predictable outcome without the common side effects of in-office bleaching systems.
