Is there any treatment for stained teeth or fluorosis without drilling?

Updated: Nov 10, 2022

Dental enamel is the hard layer that covers the surface of all teeth. It is the hardest and most mineralized material in the human body. Its properties give it a very whitish and slightly translucent appearance.

Enamel can suffer from white and brownish stains or roughness due to excess fluorides during growth or by formation defects (enamel hypoplasia). Although the origin of fluorosis is well known, it is still a very present enamel disease. Enamel hypoplasia, the origin of which is still not well known, is on the rise. It is important to choose how to treat these teeth.

"What to do in case of fluorosis or enamel hypoplasia? The choice of treatment is fundamental to the long-term prognosis of the tooth. A non-invasive approach should always be preferred as a first step."

In many cases, these aesthetic after-effects can be treated by high-tech means such as microabrasion or intensive tooth whitening, all without the need for a drill or anesthesia.
