Treatment for Tetracycline Stains

 
Tetracycline can cause permanent tooth stains.

Tetracycline is a common antibiotic that is often used as an alternative to other antimicrobial drugs or medications such as penicillin. Unfortunately, extended use of tetracycline, particularly in expectant mothers or children under the age of six, may cause permanent discoloration of the teeth. Tetracycline stains present intense yellow, gray or brown bands, which can cause long term psychological embarrassment through childhood, teenage and adult life.

Mild cases of staining may be managed with teeth whitening procedures, however moderate to severe tetracycline stains are virtually impervious to conventional bleaching techniques. Aesthetic dental remedies customarily require restorative dental work

Traditionally, disguising intrinsic tooth discoloration has been a dental challenge. New technology allows the dentist to hide intense stains with opaque and translucent layers of luminary porcelain. Most commonly achieved with porcelain veneers (laminates), millennium dentistry offers the creation of vital, natural smiles with minimum tooth reduction.
