Re-establishing Esthetics of Fluorosis-Stained Teeth Using Enamel Microabrasion and Dental Bleaching Techniques

Re-establishing Esthetics of Fluorosis-Stained Teeth Using Enamel Microabrasion and Dental Bleaching Techniques
The aim of this study was to report the clinical case of a female patient of 18 years with moderate fluorosis, whose smile was re-established by the use of an enamel microabrasion technique, followed by in-office bleaching. A microabrasion technique with 6% hydrochloric acid associated with silica carbide showed to be a safe and efficient method for removing white fluoroses stains, while dental bleaching was useful for obtaining a uniform tooth shade. The association of these techniques presented excellent results and the patient was satisfied. Both techniques are painless, fast and easy to perform, in addition to preserving the dental structure. Treatment showed immediate and permanent results; this technique must be divulged among professionals and their patients.

Oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment can be facilitated by applying bleaching materials to elevate the pH of the mouth during the course of treatment. Fabrication of thermoplastic bleaching trays directly in the mouth over the braces without impressions affords a reasonable technique for the multiple trays required during the orthodontic changes.

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens

Efficacy and Persistence of Tooth Bleaching Using a Diode Laser with Three Different Treatment Regimens
Bleaching is the most conservative esthetic treatment for discolored teeth when compared to resin-bonded composites, porcelain veneers, or crowns. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of power bleaching using a laser assisted hydrogen peroxide system, and to determine the stability of the color change over a 6-month period.

Use of a Reflectance Spectrophotometer in Evaluating Shade Change Resulting from Tooth-Whitening Products

Use of a Reflectance Spectrophotometer in Evaluating Shade Change Resulting from Tooth-Whitening Products
Historically, shade change assessment associated with vital bleaching treatment regimens has been visually evaluated through the use of shade guide tabs. Innovations in the industry of dentistry have brought forth new technologies capable of measuring such changes via the capture and analysis of reflected wavelengths of light.

The Status of Tooth Whitening Techniques 1999
Tooth whitening of vital teeth continues to have a major impact on the practice of dentistry.

In addition, new over-the-counter whitening products continue to emerge in a marketplace that cannot seem to get teeth white enough, bright enough, fast enough.
