      IN OFFICE VITAL DENTAL BLEACHING: A CASE REPORT AND LITERATURE SYNTHESIS (Abstract): Vital teeth whitening is a relatively conservative way to get whiter teeth than other therapeutic ways, such as microabrasion, veneers or crowns. The purpose of this case report is to show how safe and comfortable is the vital teeth whitening in the dentist’s office, as well as the result obtained, using a gel with a concentration of 40% hydrogen peroxide, but improved with fluorine and potassium nitrate to reduce enamel demineralization and postoperative sensitivity. The whitening treatment in the dental office using Opalescence Boost 40 presented in this report demonstrated efficacy, remarkable tooth color change and low postoperative sensitivity, indicating this method as an effective strategy to ensure maximum whitening effect with minimal complications, which can help increasing patient confidence. In-office whitening is a safe procedure with no adverse effects on tooth structure when using bleaching agents enhanced with sensitivity reducing and remineralizing agents.
