Laser-assisted Bleaching with the KTP Laser

Vanderstricht, Katrien / De Moor, Roeland J. G.

At present, the only system providing laser bleaching (of stains on and in tooth substance) with photothermal, photochemical, and photocatalytic activation of the bleaching gel is the combined use of the KTP laser (λ = 532 nm) with the Smart Bleach gel (SBI). Moreover, this system offers the advantage of performing true photobleaching, meaning that the problem of persisting intense discoloration resistant to the action of the oxygen free radicals – such as results from tetracyclines –can be solved.

Keywords: laser bleaching, KTP laser, photobleaching, power bleaching, tetracyclines
