Abstract

Aesthetics is frequently a prominent concern among young patients with anterior teeth involvement, which can be a problem to the dentist. Patients usually seek dental treatment to improve their smile because of superficial stains and enamel abnormalities. Hypoplasia, amelogenesis imperfecta, mineralized white patches, and fluorosis are all causes of these stains or abnormalities, for which enamel microabrasion is recommended. Enamel microabrasion can be used to cure superficial imperfections and certain intrinsic stains on dental enamel surfaces, however treatment must be limited to the enamel surfaces' outermost areas. Enamel microabrasion can improve the appearance of teeth by removing enamel flaws and discolouration issues. The current treatment protocol of enamel microabrasion as a minimally invasive therapy technique for mild to moderate fluorosis cases with the lesion in the superficial enamel layers is shown in these cases.

Keywords: Enamel Microabrasion; Mild Flourosis; Enamel Stains; Moderate Flouride
