Dental fluorosis leads to staining of the teeth which ranges from mild to moderate to severe grade. Mild-to-moderate fluorosis stains present over the anterior teeth gives an unaesthetic and unpleasant smile. In such conditions, enamel microabrasion could be a conservative approach which helps in rehabilitation of the esthetics with minimal enamel loss. Topical application of remineralizing agents after microabrasion enhances remineralization and reduces postoperative effects. The present case report of an 11-year-old boy describes the treatment of fluorosis stains with microabrasion in combination with topical application of casein phosphopeptide–amorphous calcium phosphate cream. The results show the benefit of the combination of microabrasion with remineralizing agent.
