"How Can I Get These White Spots Removed?"
While everyone desires the beauty of clean white teeth and a perfect smile, there are times when too much whiteness is an aesthetic concern. White spots stand out from the pearlescent shine of your teeth, creating jarring white blotches. While white teeth typically indicate good oral hygiene habits, white spots on your teeth are signs that there are problems. Dunwin Dental can help remove these spots and restore your beautiful smile.
Where Did These White Spots Come From?
Food and Drink
Sugary or acidic foods, consumed in excess, can cause tooth enamel to decay, resulting in these white spots.
An excess of plaque buildup on your teeth can cause spots on them to demineralize, which can cause these spots to appear.
As a testament that too much of something can be as bad as too little, fluorosis results when a patient has somehow received too much fluoride while their teeth were still developing.
How To Remove White Spots
Your White Spot Removal Appointment
- We use a resin infiltration method that helps to eliminate these spots by stabilizing the enamel. This treatment can be done in under an hour and doesn’t remove any material in the process. Even if you have your teeth whitened later, this portion of your tooth will whiten just like your natural teeth.
White Spot Removal After Care
- Once the white spot on your teeth is removed, you’ll want to make sure that you take steps to keep them healthy and clean.
- The first step is to return to regular dental hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwash.
- Reducing the amount of high sugar and acid foods you eat will also be beneficial, as they can cause additional white spots to appear.
