BACKGROUND There exists limited data in the literature regarding the efficacy and safety of consumer-available, paint-on bleaching solutions. PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the effect of two consumer-available, paint-on bleaching products on enamel microhardness against a control and a dentist-prescribed, home-applied (DPHA) bleaching product. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty enamel slabs were obtained from extracted human teeth and randomly divided into four… CONTINUE READING
