A minimally invasive treatment of severe dental fluorosis

Stavridakis, Minos
Published in Quintessence International. 2007, vol. 38, no. 6, p. 455-8
Abstract This article describes a minimally invasive technique to treat a severe case of enamel fluorosis using microabrasion to eliminate the hypermineralized, white-colored, superficial enamel layer, followed by home bleaching treatment and chairside re-creation of superficial enamel microstructure. The proposed technique may improve the esthetics of fluorotic teeth without requiring other restorative procedures. Microabrasion followed by home bleaching may be an interesting alternative for the restorative treatment of teeth affected by fluorosis.
