Results: It was observed a successful combination of the mentioned techniques to restore the smile esthetics. Conclusion: Since well planned, according to the etiology, intensity of discoloration and depth of the lesion, the application of microabrasion and dental bleaching is a viable option in the treatment of enamel stains.
