The fluoride may be beneficial as well as harmful to teeth. The effects of fluorosis on teeth range from white opaque areas to severe pitting with brown or black discoloration of the teeth. Such discoloration of teeth causes unesthetic appearance of teeth and requires rehabilitation. The present article describes the case report of esthetic rehabilitation of dental fluorosis with ceramic veneers.
