Case Study #2
18yr old female interested in teeth whitening
With the exception of her wisdom teeth, the permanent dentition was completely present and healthy. Note that studies have shown that whitening recently erupted teeth is safe and effective, and no apparent color differential lines appear as passive eruption occurs in the ensuing years. Light teeth will show far less shade shift, simply because there is an upper limit to whiteness. However, the final result is much brighter overall, especially in the darker cervical regions of the teeth. The results of this in-office whitening procedure using the BlanQuest® Pro can be observed in Figures 5a-c. Due to a lighter starting shade, only 3 sessions of 8 minutes each were needed, using the In-Office BlanQuest® Pro Teeth Whitening Kit and a light accelerator.
