Objectives To evaluate the long-term outcomes of in-office bleaching with violet LED light (LED) alone or combined with carbamide (CP) or hydrogen (HP) peroxides. Methods Volunteers of a previous short-term study were recalled for 6- and 12-month follow-ups, according to the following interventions (n = 18/group): LED, CP, LED/CP, HP, and LED/HP. The objective color (Delta E-ab, Delta E-00) and whiteness index (Delta WID) changes were calculated applying the CIELab coordinates' values obtained using a spectrophotometer. A visual shade guide determined the tooth's subjective color change (Delta SGU). Data were submitted to one-way ANOVA or Welch's ANOVA, following appropriate post hoc tests (alpha = 5%). Results The LED and CP groups exhibited the lowest Delta E-ab, Delta E-00, and Delta SGU (p < 0.05), but the LED group displayed a significantly lower Delta WID. After 12 months, the LED/CP group presented a higher Delta E-ab and Delta E-00 than the CP group (p < 0.05). Delta E-ab, Delta E-00, Delta SGU, or Delta WID means did not differ statistically between the LED/CP and HP groups. The LED/HP group presented a higher Delta E-00 than the HP group, regardless of the time. Conclusions The bleaching efficacy of LED alone was significantly lower compared to the LED/CP and HP-containing protocols. After 12 months, the LED/CP and HP groups did not differ in bleaching efficacy. LED irradiation only increased the objective color change of bleaching gels.
