Abstract: Dental fluorosis is a disorder resulting in anesthetic coloration of enamel due to excessive ingestion of fluoride during enamel maturation. Disturbing the appearance, it has considerable implications on patients’ esteem and quality of life. Depending on the severity of fluorosis and the thickness of the layer of enamel involved, wide ranges of approaches of varying invasiveness are proposed. Alone or in combination, they can provide esthetic masking of the discolored enamel unless the effect of each treatment the clinical situation is well considered.
