Although supervised night-guard bleaching has proved successful for whitening teeth, both mineral loss and tooth sensitivity are still common problems. The present study introduces a novel remineralizer as well as describes the utilization of a possibly low sensitivity supervised night-guard vital tooth bleaching technique. A 22% carbamide peroxide gel was mixed with the casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate-containing MI Paste. The peroxide/MI Paste mixture was prepared with 1 ml of each material until obtaining a homogeneous paste. Five patients were instructed to follow a home bleaching protocol for 3 weeks. The outcome was assessed visually with a Vitapan scale. All subjects presented reduction of at least two Vitapan scale units after bleaching and no sensitivity was reported. The concomitant use of MI Paste and peroxide might not affect the gel effectiveness and still reduce hypersensitivity levels.
