The evaluation of the effect of bleaching on monomer release from two composite resins was performed by bleaching two nanohybrid composite resins Filtek Z550 and Tetric N-Ceram using two bleaching products Whiteness HP Maxx and Vivastyle. In total, 20 samples were made from each composite resin from w hich four groups were fabricated (two for each bleaching product). The samples were stored in a 75% ethanol solution, and the solutions were renewed after 1, 7, and 28 days. The monomer release IN as analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography. The data were analyzed using repeated measures analysis of variance and least significant difference multiple comparison test (alpha = 0.05). Monomers were found to be released from both composite resins. The amounts of monomer released were found to decrease over time (P < 0.05); however, the resins were not affected by bleaching, and the released monomers were well below toxic doses.
