Comparison of the clinical efficacy of at-home and in-office bleaching
Background: There is a lack of consensus regarding the superiority of the two vital bleaching methods. Aims: To compare the clinical efficacies of the two methods at home and in- office. Materials & Methods: Data was collected from PubMed, Embase, Cochrane, Lilacs, Scielo and BBO. Two independent researchers selected the articles, ie., only randomized clinical trials. Where there was no initial agreement, researchers reached a consensus. The search strategy initially yielded 483 titles. After the exclusion by titles, 408 articles remained and following the abstract-based evaluation, only 5 were subjected to further analysis. Results: The most of the authors did not find any statistically significant differences between at home and in-office bleaching procedures. Conclusion: Both the at home and in-office methods alone or in association are equally efficient when a 14 day protocol is used.
