I have a discolored enamel. My doctor suggested that it could be due to fluorosis. My teeth have been brittle since childhood and would frequently chip off. Also, I had cavities for which I got root canal treatment done for four teeth. The yellowish discoloration of my teeth is bothering me. Is there a treatment option other than veneers?
Many treatment options mask the white spots and help achieve a beautiful smile. A veneer is a permanent solution with a life of 10 to 15 years. However, the other treatment options include tooth whitening or composite fillings.
I hope this helps.
The Probable causes:
The probable causes are fluorosis, dentinal caries, or poor oral hygiene.
Investigations to be done:
I suggest a dental X-ray.
The differential diagnosis is dental caries.
The probable diagnosis is fluorosis.
I suggest veneer crowns, tooth whitening, or composite filling.
Regarding follow up:
I suggest a follow-up after three days.
