This two-volume guide describes the full range of professional teeth whitening procedures, including home whitening, “walking bleach,” power whitening, non-vital tooth bleaching, microabrasion, and gingival bleaching. In addition, the authors address the topics of sensitivity, the maintenance required to keep teeth as light as possible, and over-the-counter bleaching products. The section on clinical diagnosis and treatment planning provides tools useful for routine clinical practice such as a tooth whitening flow chart, a sample patient questionnaire, and a tooth-shade evaluation protocol. The supplementary book, Tooth Whitening Communication Tool
, is a valuable collection of before and after treatment photographs designed to help the clinician better communicate the expected outcome of the proposed teeth whitening procedures to the patient. Tooth Whitening in Esthetic Dentistry
is a must-read text for every dentist, dental hygienist, dental assistant, and anyone with an interest in tooth whitening in esthetic dentistry.
