The recently introduced bleaching technique, originally called Nightguard Vital Bleaching, but also referred to as Home Bleaching or Dentist Monitored Bleaching, has created resurgence in the area of bleaching, primarily because of relative ease of application of the materials, safety of the materials and the high percentage of success. The technique uses a custom fitting mouth tray for delivery of bleaching gel. This article provides a comprehensive and detailed description of a new, simplified, chair-side technique for fabrication of custom tray for the delivery of bleaching gel in the dentist-supervised home bleaching technique. It does not require vacuum – former for molding and adapting the thermoplastic tray material and relies on the commonly available material and equipments in the dental office. A thick mix of irreversible hydrocolloid impression material is used to mold and adapt the uniformly heated tray - forming material on the patient’s cast. The technique being inexpensive, simple, time saving and less technique sensitive is advantageous for both the patient and the dentist. This article intends to provide guidelines to the dental staff for chair - side fabrication of bleaching tray utilizing this new technique.
