Treatment of endemic fluorosis and tetracycline staining with macroabrasion and nightguard vital bleaching: A case report
Bodden, M. Kirby / van Haywood, B.
A patient, diagnosed with a combination of level 3 endemic dental fluorosis and degree 1 tetracycline staining, was treated sequentially by macroabrasion techniques and nightguard vital bleaching. Various pairings of diamond and carbide burs, abrasive disks, rotary polishing points, and diamond polishing pastes were tested to obtain the optimal combination for macroabrasion. This conservative treatment regimen produced results that were termed "excellent" by the patient and met the goals of the dentists.
