Tooth whitening outcomes may be optimized when different bleaching techniques are combined. For patients with generalized physiological tooth discoloration and darkened endodontically treated teeth, internal tooth whitening of these nonvital teeth followed by at-home whitening of both arches is the recommended treatment. Dentists must inform their patients about the expected outcomes of each procedure and provide an evidence-based choice.
