Rhys – Fremantle15 Sep 2015, Posted by Blog in
Rhys was concerned with the yellowness of his teeth and the noticeable white patches/lines.
His initial tooth colour was an A3 (which is them most common colour for stained teeth). This type of discolouration responds very well to teeth whitening. The other issue we faced was the presence of the White patches/lines on Rhys’s teeth. This is also quite common condition. The usual cause of these white patches being fluorosis, mineral loss (hypocalcification), or poor oral care.
Our recommendation in Rhys’s case was to whiten his teeth initially. As his teeth became lighter the white patches and lines became less obvious. If required, additional treatment can be performed to completely remove these white areas such as micro-abrasion, resin infiltration and topical re-mineralization.
Rhys’s final shade B1 – after 5 weeks of home teeth whitening.
