Abstract

In this present work, gold nanoparticles coated with citrate was first synthesized and then it was used as a nanocomposite catalytic both for oxidizing and for reducing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), to whiten teeth. Dyes were used to stain the tooth specimens for three days and subsequently bleached using H2O2 alone, H2O2 plus gold nanoparticles. The results of bleaching teeth with and without Luma care irradiation were compared.
