Fluoride Action Network


Dental fluorosis is a developmental disturbance of enamel caused by excessive fluoride on ameloblasts during enamel formation. Patients often present to the dentist with a main goal of improving their esthetic appearance. This case report describes a minimally invasive technique for treating a severe case of enamel fluorosis with brown surface aspect and small defects. A selective mega-abrasion and microabrasion were used to recreate macro- and micro- surface morphology, followed by power bleaching, home bleaching, and resin infiltration to improve the esthetic appearance.
