COMPARING THE EFFECT OF LASER BLEACHING WITH HOME BLEACHING ON PAAN STAINED TEETH USING DIGITAL SPECTROPHOTOMETER
Introduction: The demand for tooth whitening has increased dramatically with the resulting development of new tooth whitening products and procedures. As it is a common scenario that the dentists come across paan stained teeth very regularly in dental practice, the need for this study is to compare if laser bleaching or three day home bleaching is effective for paan stained and give better treatment options for patients.
Aim: To compare the effect of laser bleaching on paan stained tooth with home bleaching tooth using digital spectrophotometer
Methodology: 20 extracted teeth were preserved in a solution of normal saline with 1% thymol crystals. The teeth were immersed in staining solution containing paan extracts for a period of two week. The specimens were evaluated for pre shades using VitaEasyShade. The stained specimens for paan respectively were divided randomly into 2 groups one for laser bleaching and other for home bleaching. POLA OFFICE + was applied on tooth and activated using the diode laser as per the manufacturer’s instructions for group 1. The bleaching was carried out with Philips Zoom Nitewhite for group 2. The second colour measurement of the specimens was made using VitaEasyShade.
Conclusion: The results showed that laser bleaching was effective when compared to three day home bleach in paan stained teeth using digital spectrophotometer.
