Carbamide peroxide whitening of nonvital single discolored teeth: case reports.

Author information

Department of Oral Rehabilitation, Medical College of Georgia, School of Dentistry, Augusta 30912-1260, USA.


Patients who present with a single discolored tooth represent a significant restorative challenge. These case reports describe an economic and conservative treatment option for these patients. The situations presented demonstrate techniques for bleaching with carbamide peroxide in a traditional nightguard or with an inside-outside technique to achieve acceptable esthetic results on isolated nonvital discolored teeth. Although these techniques may not be effective in all cases, they do not compromise or eliminate any future treatment options.
