Conservative approach for a clinical resolution of enamel white spot lesions
Nahsan, Flavia Pardo Salata / da Silva, Luciana Mendonca / Baseggio, Wagner / Franco, Eduardo Batista / Francisconi, Paulo Afonso Silveira / Mondelli, Rafael Francisco Lia / Wang, Linda
Enamel white spot lesions in anterior teeth that compromise esthetics are common. Microabrasion is indicated, since it affects enamel superficially. An acid-abrasive slurry with 37% phosphoric acid with pumice was used on the enamel for a controlled time period. Home bleaching with hydrogen peroxide was then used, further improving the final result. The method is safe, easy, and conservative and provides good esthetic results.
