Treatment of Fluorosis Spots Using a Resin Infiltration Technique: 14-month Follow-up

Oper Dent. 2016 Jul-Aug;41(4):357-62. doi: 10.2341/14-335-S.


The aim of this study was to report a clinical case of moderate fluorosis spots treated with infiltration of low-viscosity resin. A commercial resin was applied to the facial surfaces on the anterior teeth in both the maxillary and mandibular arches. The white spots of fluorosis lost their whitish appearance and appeared similar to sound enamel. This technique, which might constitute an alternative to white-masking of fluorosis spots, showed optimal esthetic results.
