OBJECTIVES To carry out a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that investigated changes in perceived quality of life following vital tooth bleaching. METHODS Online searches (Medline, PubMed, the Cochrane database of systemic reviews and Google scholar), bibliographic, and manual searches were carried out. Two authors independently screened the 313 articles identified from the searches and two authors extracted data, including risk of bias using the Cochrane data collection form… 
Is Bleaching Effective in Managing Post-orthodontic White-spot Lesions? A Systematic Review.
TLDR
The results showed that bleaching of WSL can diminish colour disparities between carious and non-affected areas, but the certainty of the evidence was very low and the high degree of methodological heterogeneity precluded a valid interpretation of the results through pooled estimates.
Impact of tooth bleaching on oral health-related quality of life in adults: A triple-blind randomised clinical trial.
TLDR
The bleaching agents were highly effective and demonstrated a moderate influence on the patients' aesthetic perception and psychosocial impact, especially with respect to the psychological discomfort domains, social disability, and total OHIP-14 score.
Self-Perception of Teeth Alignment and Colour in Adolescents: A Cross-sectional Study.
TLDR
Exposure to smoking and lower maternal level of education were associated with worse self-perception of teeth alignment and colour in adolescents and a history of orthodontic treatment with or without tooth whitening was associated with lower concern with aesthetics.
A randomized clinical trial investigating three vital tooth bleaching protocols and associated efficacy, effectiveness and participants' satisfaction.
TLDR
All bleaching protocols resulted in significant improvement of participants' perceived oral health and satisfaction with smile and whiteness of teeth, and accelerated whitening can be achieved using a combination of in-office and home bleaching.
Assessment of the aesthetic impact and quality of life of home dental bleaching in adult patients
TLDR
Home bleaching with 10% carbamide peroxide did not have a significant impact on patients’ quality of life and aesthetic perception, although there was a decrease in the domain of psychological discomfort and an increase in concerns about dental appearance.
Global Interest for Health Professions Education: A Geographic and Temporal Analyses Through Web Search Differences from 2010-2019
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to analyze the spatio-temporal differences in web search trends for dental degrees (DD), medical degrees (MD), and nursing degrees (ND) across 197 countries
Influence of Hydrogen Peroxide on Mineralization in Dental Pulp Cells: A Systematic Review
Background: Dental bleaching agents show the ability to permeate through dental hard tissues, which may lead to pulp tissue changes. This systematic review (PROSPERO register: CRD42020213767) is
In Vivo Effects of Two In-Office Vital Tooth Bleaching Systems on Enamel Permeability
Tooth bleaching is a common treatment for the amelioration of the aesthetic of discoloured teeth. In this context, there are two common approaches that employ concentrated solutions (30–40 wt.%) of
Short-term effects of stain-causing beverages on tooth bleaching: A randomized controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
The consumption of coffee or tea during tooth bleaching may not interfere with the colour change produced by the treatment, but clinicians should advise their patients to refrain from, at least to some extent, consuming coffee after the bleaching procedure to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment.
Combination of strontium chloride and photobiomodulation in the control of tooth sensitivity post-bleaching: A split-mouth randomized clinical trial
TLDR
The combination of 10% strontium chloride with PBM was effective in reducing post-bleaching TS; however, it did not differ from the individual use of Placebo + PBM or STRONTIUM groups assessed after 21 days of follow-up.

Non-clinical outcome measures in dentistry: publishing trends 1988-98.
TLDR
There needs to be more focus on the development of methods to assess the validity of non-clinical outcome measures in dentistry and on the theoretical links between the different concepts of outcome found in the current study.
The sensitivity and responsiveness of an oral health related quality of life measure to tooth whitening.
TLDR
The OHIP scale is sensitive and responsive to the effects of tooth whitening, and has implications for the use of oral health related quality of life measures as an outcome measure of interventions aimed at improving dental aesthetics through Tooth whitening.

TLDR
Results indicate that vital tooth whitening does not improve overall OHRQOL in older adults.

TLDR
The Oral Health Impact Profile offers a reliable and valid instrument for detailed measurement of the social impact of oral disorders and has potential benefits for clinical decision-making and research.
Psychosocial impact of dental esthetics on quality of life in adolescents.
TLDR
A broad range of adolescents' self-perceived impact of dental esthetics is influenced by severity of malocclusion, oral health-related quality of life, and body satisfaction.

Clinical performance of vital bleaching techniques.
TLDR
This study compared the clinical outcome of bleaching techniques in vital teeth with a split-mouth study design and found that OBL and OB resulted in higher sensitivity rates than HB, and the use of light irradiation did not improve bleaching efficacy.
Developing a short form of Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) for dental aesthetics: OHIP-aesthetic.
TLDR
A modified short form of the OHIP derived (OHIP-conceptual) was the most favorable in discriminating dental aesthetics, was reliable and most sensitive to the dental aesthetics intervention - tooth whitening.
