Management of Enamel Stains Using a Combination Technique of Microabrasion and Remineralizing Agent


, , ,
Abstract

The most common cause of an unaesthetic smile is Dental fluorosis which leads to discoloration of the teeth due to staining. The staining of the incisor and cuspids gives a disagreeable and unaesthetic smile which ranges from mild-to-moderate fluorosis stains and tobacco stains. To overcome these problems, a minimally invasive approach, Enamel Microabrasion can be considered which not only enhances esthetics but also leads to minimal enamel loss. Due to the abrasive effect of the material, there are chances of postoperative sensitivity. To overcome these effects topical application of remineralizing agents after microabrasion is considered beneficial. The present case reports of 28 and 33-year-old male patients emphasize the management of fluorosis and tobacco stains respectively with microabrasion followed by a remineralizing agent which can be topically applied, and the outcome shows the efficacy of the blending technique of microabrasion and remineralization. Clinical significance is providing the minimally invasive non-restorative technique that provides excellent long-term esthetic outcomes.
