Este artículo de revisión ayudará a los odontólogos a mejorar su comprensión de los procedimientos de aclaramiento dental, tipos de aclaramientos, componentes activos, mecanismos de acción y sus efectos sobre las estructuras dentales, materiales de obturación y la adhesión. También se mostrará un nuevo sistema, el cual consiste en tres pasos denominados ABC que significa Activate, Bleach and Condition (activación, blanqueamiento y acondicionamiento). Al realizar estas tres etapas se garantiza un tratamiento de aclaramiento muy eficaz, seguro y sobre todo sin dolor.

Palabras clave: Aclaramiento, peróxido de carbamida, peróxido de hidrógeno, sistema ABC Master Kit.
