Abstract

PURPOSE: To report the results obtained with an at-home bleaching product in the removal of enamel surface stains. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An individualized vacuum-formed mouthguard was fabricated and scalloped so that the terminal portion of the mouthguard ended approximately 1.0 mm from the gingiva. The patient was instructed to brush his teeth with Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste prior to and after using the Rembrandt Gel Plus bleaching gel. In addition, the patient was informed as to the proper method of placing the gel in the mouthguard, and inserting the mouthguard into his mouth. The mouthguard was to be worn for 2-3 hours a day for a 2-week period. RESULTS: At the end of 2 weeks, the enamel surface stains were removed through the bleaching process.
