Combined minimally invasive treatment of white and brown fluorotic discolorations in a teenager: a case report
Sammarco, Giovanni
It is very common for a dentist to detect white discolorations (WDs) of the teeth. The most common causes for this condition are fluorosis, early caries demineralization, molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH), and trauma or infection of the corresponding primary tooth. In cases of severe enamel discoloration, invasive approaches such as resin composite restorations, ceramic veneers or even crowns are generally chosen. This clinical report describes a combined minimally invasive treatment of a teenager's maxillary teeth affected by fluorosis. Dental bleaching, microabrasion, and resin infiltration were performed. The satisfactory clinical result has made it possible to avoid more invasive and expensive treatments.
