Clinical Relevance

A minimally invasive esthetic treatment can provide longevity and color stability.


This clinical case report describes a minimally invasive approach to mask diffuse and demarcated opacities in permanent anterior teeth in an eight-year-old child who was upset with the appearance of her incisors. Clinical examination showed diffuse opacities in teeth 7, 8, 9, and 10, diagnosed as dental fluorosis associated with yellow demarcated opacity in tooth 9 related to molar-incisor hypomineralization. The treatment was based on conservative dentistry using the low-viscosity resin infiltration technique and resin composite restoration in an attempt to mask the lesions. The follow-up time was 24 months.
