Abstract Bleaching of discolored teeth is one of the most important topics in aesthetic dentistry. A great challenge in this area is obtaining good results in tetracycline-stained teeth. The wavelength and features of KTP laser, which is a type of Nd:YAG laser, seem to be appropriate for bleaching of these teeth. This case report underlines the importance of knowledge about the photochemical bleaching by using the KTP laser and its side effects on soft tissues.
