I have some moderate marks on my front four top teeth. From what I’ve read online I believe that these are a mix of decalcification marks (chalky white marks at the front of the teeth) and fluorosis (a small yellow mark which appears to be further back in the tooth immediately left of centre).
I recently had laser whitening done on my teeth and was hoping the treatment would decrease the appearance of these unsightly marks. However while it whitened the rest of my teeth to the lightest colour on the Vita shade guide, the marks remain prominent and noticeable when I smile.
I’m wondering what to do now because I’m a model and have been told by my boss to get this sorted. I understand that a process called microabrasion can be used to remove the marks from the teeth but that this doesn’t work on marks that are deeper inside. I also understand that veneers are an option but relatively expensive.
I would very much appreciate it if you could get back to me and clarify what my options are and the financial implications.
Thank you for your time.
