Enamel Microabrasion System
PRĒMA® Enamel Microabrasion Compound is a patented acid-abrasive formulation used to correct superficial white, brown or multi-colored “dysmineralization” enamel defects. Fluorosis is one example of such dysmineralization. PRĒMA creates a plaque and acid-resistant surface resulting from it’s “glazing” ability on superficial enamel.1, 2, 3, 4
PRĒMA compound is applied with a 10:1 gear reduction contra-angle, on a low-speed handpiece, in a controlled manner, to safely remove an insignificant and unrecognizable amount of superficial enamel.
Enamel microabrasion, analogous to dermabrasion on skin surfaces, does not recognizably alter enamel surface contours; however, it does permanently eliminate many developmental enamel coloration defects which do not penetrate deeply into the enamel surface. The compound is an ideal suspension of specially formulated fine abrasive powder, a mild concentration of hydrochloric acid, in a water soluble gel.
Enamel microabrasion is different from bleaching techniques and is much more conservative than preparing the enamel and restoring the tooth with resin-based composite or porcelain veneers. However, in some cases, a combination of enamel microabrasion and tooth bleaching gives the most ideal tooth color correction.
