Nowadays the clinician is faced with the difficult challenge of covering discoloration sometimes quite severe.
Currently, we can use extremely predictable techniques of dental bleaching, allowing sometimes to avoid the covering discolored elements, achieving excellent results in terms of aesthetics and durability. The choice of extremely versatile products, together with the use of appropriate techniques, facilitates the clinician in cases of discoloration of medium severity.
In contrast, in more complex situations, which require changes in shape, color, and position, it is possible to use high-performance ceramic materials, in order to perform high aesthetic rehabilitations, however using minimally invasive procedures.
