AIM: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the leakage of bleaching agents through 3 different bases into the obturated pulp space and dentinal tubules in intra coronal bleaching. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty-five freshly extracted, intact non-carious single rooted teeth were collected and stored in formalin until used. The specimen divided into experimental and control group. Experimental group were further subdivided into 3 subgroups on the base of cervical base materials. Group I was Type II GIC, Group II was Fuji II LC and Group III was Hybrid composite. The control groups was divides into negative group (received the bleaching agent and received complete external coating including access cavity) and positive control group (did not receive any external coating). The obturated pulp space were removed at a level of 3 mm below the cemento enamel junction and filled with dry cotton pellets and temporized with temporary cement, stored at ± 37°C and 100% relative humidity for five days, the bleaching material were placed in the pulp chamber (a paste of sodium perborate i.e. 0.15g and 30% hydrogen peroxide 0.05ml), and then stored for 3 days in an incubator. Later on the teeth were immersed in India ink dye and stored at ± 37°C and 100% relative humidity for 5 days. Specimens were examined under binocular microscope with a stage micrometer to analyze the degree of dye penetration. RESULTS: The minimal leakage values were observed with type II glass ionomer cement followed by light cure glass ionomer cement and lastly by hybrid composite. CONCLUSION: The present invitro investigation evaluated the microleakage observed with different cervical base materials during non-vital bleaching procedures.
