Abstract:  The most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedure is tooth whitening. Many manufacturers are involved in the development and sale of at-home tooth-whitening products that have been approved by the American Dental Association. However, the American Academy for Cosmetic Dentistry recommends dentist-supervised treatments. There are various causes for tooth discoloration and various formulas that can be compounded for tooth bleaching. Compounding pharmacists should increase their knowledge of the types and origins of tooth discoloration, bleaching techniques, and the advantages and disadvantages of tooth bleaching so that they can better serve their patients and be involved in this growing market.
