Purpose: The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of intracoronal bleaching agents (IBA) on discolored teeth with triple-antibiotic paste (TAP). Methods: Twenty-six extracted maxillary incisors were discolored for 3 weeks with TAP, containing metronidazole, ciprofloxacin, and doxycycline. Following CIE L*a*b* system, colors were measured at baseline and at 1, 2, and 3 weeks. Specimens, bleached intracoronally, were randomly divided into two groups (n = 13): 35% hydrogen peroxide (HP) and 37% carbamide peroxide (CP). Color changes (ΔE) were based on the spectrophotometric measurements at baseline, 3rd, 6th, and 9th days and analyzed using analysis of variance, Bonferroni, and Student t-tests (p < 0.05).
