Thirty-six premolars were divided into six groups and bleaching agents were sealed into the pulp chambers as follows: group 1 - distilled water (control), group 2-30% hydrogen peroxide solution, group 3 - sodium perborate mixed with distilled water, group 4 - sodium perborate mixed with 30% hydrogen peroxide solution, group 5-35% carbamide peroxide gel, group 6-35% hydrogen peroxide gel. Access cavities were sealed and the teeth were stored in distilled water at 37°C. After 7 days, each tooth was sectioned at the cemento-enamel junction level and microhardness testing was carried out on dentine. The results showed that treatment with 35% hydrogen peroxide gel, 30% hydrogen peroxide solution and 35% carbamide peroxide gel reduced the microhardness of outer dentine to a small extent while treatment with sodium perborate mixed with water and sodium perborate mixed with 30% hydrogen peroxide solution did not significantly alter the microhardness of dentine.||Source Title:||Journal of Oral Rehabilitation||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/46856||ISSN:||0305182X||DOI:||10.1111/j.1365-2842.2004.01298.x|
