A new LED wavelength, violet LED (VL) with a wavelength between 405 - 410 nm was recently introduced to be used for in-office dental bleaching. In comparison to the blue LED system (440 to 485 nm), the shorter wave-length has more energy carried in its photons and also corresponds to the absorption peak of the stained particles, which lead to whitening utilizing a physical process. Considering the need to suggest and develop new protocols with this new technology, this article reports 2 different dental bleaching protocols developed in a split-mouth model using VL. A 25-year-old male patient was submitted to in-office dental bleaching. On the teeth from the left side, the bleaching gel (35% H2O2) was renewed 3 times (every 8 mins), and on the right side, the gel was maintained without renewal during the bleaching session. The irradiation with Violet LED Light (405 nm +/- 10 nm) was performed with the following protocol: 1 min of irradiation with 30 s light off until 8 min of total time. A total of 3 cycles were performed (total time of 24 min). Two bleaching sessions were performed with an in-terval of 7 days between sessions. Based on the results of this split-mouth case report, there was no visible difference in the final color outcome and sensitivity between both bleaching protocols tested. (AU)
