Dyschromia in anterior teeth, a direct approach. Trouble, challenge or what else?
Endodontically treated anterior teeth always represent a challenge for all dentists. The Author focuses on the topic showing the possibility to restore both from a functional and aesthetic point of view, even when a tooth is affected by dyschromia. The use of bleaching combined with adhesive techniques allows to save considerable tooth structure achieving an excellent and long lasting aesthetic outcome especially in young patients, where is crucial to operate conservatively, according to the concept of minimally invasive treatments.
