Abstract

Dental fluorosis is a condition that produces unesthetic coloration of enamel because of excessive fluoride ingestion during enamel formation. Its appearance can range in severity from mildly white and opaque to dark brown and can lead a patient to seek dental treatment. Historically, these lesions have been masked, either with direct or indirect restorations, but more conservative treatment options are now available, including the combination of microabrasion and bleaching. This clinical report describes the use of these treatment options to address a young patient's dental fluorosis.
