What is it about?
Dental fluorosis leads to esthetic deviation and varies from nonpitted white opacities, dark brown stains to pitting or structural breakdown of enamel surface. Treatment for fluorosis depends on the severity of condition and includes both noninvasive methods and invasive methods. Recently resin infiltration has been proposed as an alternative treatment for nonpitted fluorosis. This study was done to evaluate the esthetic changes in nonpitted fluorosis stains when treated with resin infiltration, in-office bleaching and combination therapies.

Why is it important?
The results can be generalized to mild to moderate fluorosis cases among children and adolescents, with caution as still more studies with both subjective and objective parameters are required. Moreover, studies to show the long term stability of the results obtained with of resin infiltration and combination therapies are also needed.
