The Art & Science of Tooth Whitening

Speaker: Dr. Gerard Kugel, DMD, MS, PhD & Connie Kugel, RDH, BS

Tooth whitening has become easy, rewarding and profitable. New systems are being brought to market at a dizzying pace. Should I do a chairside or take-home bleaching? Do the over-the-counter whitening products work and how do I incorporate them into my clinical practice? What about a combination of chairside and take-home? Are they worth it?

In this course we will review the different systems on the market as well as those on the horizon. The pros and cons of bleaching will be covered, as well as the use of different light sources to speed up the whitening process. Issues of sensitivity, mechanism of action and longevity will be discussed.

Material in this program will rely on scientific evidence from the literature as well from our own clinical experiences.

Hands on activities allow you to practice new techniques and live demonstration provides the opportunity to see real-time whitening results!
