|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Tooth Discoloration||Device: ToothWave Device: powered toothbrush||Not Applicable|
The study includes 84 treatment sessions, twice a day, and 4 clinic visits over a period of 6 weeks.
One treatment group (Silk'n power toothbrush - ToothWave) and 1 control group (an ADA approved power toothbrush (PTB)) will participate in the study.
For each patient, efficacy assessment data will be collected at baseline, 4 weeks, and at 6 weeks. The average stain data will be calculated for each group.
Treatment is defined as a timed, 2 minute brushing of the teeth according to the manufactur-er's instructions, twice daily (morning and evening). Brushing will be undertaken using the Silk'n toothbrush and standard fluoride toothpaste. The control group will use an ADA ac-cepted PTB and the same standard fluoride toothpaste.

- Extrinsic Stains [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
Extrinsic Stains will be evaluated using the validated Lobene Stain Index (LSI)
Stain Intensity score range is between 0 and 3, where:
0 = no stain
- = light stain
- = moderate stain
- = heavy stain
The mean stain intensity will be calculated for both the gingival and body regions of the incisor teeth for each subject.
Stain Area score rage is between 0 and 3, where:
0 = no stain
- = stain covering up to one third of region
- = stain covering up to two thirds of region
- = stain covering more than two thirds of region
The mean stain area will be calculated for both the gingival and body regions of the incisor teeth for each subject.
- Tooth color assessment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]VITA Bleachedguide 3D-Master shade guide, includes 29 shade levels defined by the American Dental Association (ADA). These shade levels represents the brightness of the tooth where 1 is the whitest and 29 is the darkest shade.
