Can Fluorosis Stains Be Removed?

Posted on 10/15/2023 by A Great Smile Arizona
Close-up of a patient's teeth with a gap at A Great Smile ArizonaYes! It is possible to get rid of fluorosis stains. However, these stains can only be removed through various dental procedures. Fluorosis arises from excessive fluoride exposure during tooth formation. The condition causes irregular mineralization and enamel discoloration. The intensity of fluorosis can range from subtle white spots to more pronounced brown staining. The following are treatment options for fluorosis stains removal:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can help eliminate fluorosis stains. It involves the application of bleaching gel to your teeth for a specified duration. This gel lightens your tooth enamel, allowing it to harmonize with the appearance of fluorosis. Teeth whitening is a viable choice to remove mild fluorosis stains. But your dentist can use other alternative treatments that suit your needs better.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a technique where the dentist employs composite resin materials to conceal fluorosis stains. The teeth are then sculpted and refined to achieve a natural appearance through shaping and polishing.

[[[H2:Enamel Micro-abrasion]]
Enamel microabrasion is a procedure carried out in the dentist's office. This is where the dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. The process effectively eliminates numerous fluorosis stains. Frequently, enamel microabrasion is followed by teeth whitening further to enhance the uniformity of your teeth color.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are usually crafted using porcelain or resin material. They are thin shells that are affixed to the fronts of your teeth. These veneers are tailor-made based on individual specifications. Therefore, the dentist takes your tooth impressions to mold them. This ensures precise fitting and sizing.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are also used to conceal fluorosis stains. They are employed for people with severe fluorosis. Crowns are also used when alternative treatments do not achieve desired outcomes. They fully cover and elevate the visual appeal of the affected teeth.
