This young patient came to us because she was becoming very conscious of staining on her front teeth. She had been told previously she would have to wait until age 18 to have them whitened.
We decided to carry out a conservative treatment known as microabrasion. This involves polishing the teeth with a mild abrasive polish, to remove the staining in the enamel.
The treatment is carried out without anaesthetic, and completed in approximately 10 minutes. It is very safe and conservative.
The patient was very happy with her new appearance and has gained the confidence to smile again.
This treatment is suitable for various types of staining- depending on the cause and severity of the stains. It can be used in conjunction with whitening before or after the microabrasion, for more complicated aesthetic cases.
If you are interested in this treatment please contact the practice.
