Teeth can be discoloured for many reasons, and sometimes the discolourations can be white spots and darker patches. This can be due to improper mineralisation of the tooth enamel, subsequent to many possible causes. Modern techniques can allow this to be treated conservatively and without the need for fillings or veneers. This conservative approach is the perfect treatment for such discolourations.
Case #1: Anterior Microabrasion
This patient presented with significant patches on his teeth, and had been told he needed porcelain veneers. After 6 weeks of conservative treatment using home-based and in-practice whitening, and remineralisation procedures, we were able to return the natural colour to his teeth without drilling into the teeth or placing veneers, producing a beautiful post-treatment smile.
