The appearance of teeth affected by moderate-to-severe fluorosis can be significantly improved by a variety of techniques. Most of them are aimed at masking the stains.
Such techniques may include:
Tooth whitening and other procedures to remove surface stains; note that bleaching teeth may temporarily worsen the appearance of fluorosis.
Bonding, which coats the tooth with a hard resin that bonds to the enamelCrowns
Veneers, which are custom-made shells that cover the front of the teeth to improve their appearance; these are used in cases of severe fluorosis.
MI Paste, a calcium phosphate product that is sometimes combined with methods like microabrasion to minimize tooth discoloration.
