Articles How to Get Rid of White Spots on Your Teeth
White spots on the teeth look unsightly and can affect your confidence, especially if your job involves face to face contact or you meet new people on a regular basis. If you’re unhappy with the look of your smile it can really hold you back. Luckily, we have amazing treatments to help to remove white spots and give you a healthier looking smile.
About white spots
Most cases of white spots on the teeth are linked to fluorosis, which is caused by excessive exposure to fluoride. This is most common in children, however it can also affect adults. As the teeth develop, fluorosis can cause calcium deposits to form on the teeth and this has an effect on the appearance of the smile. It is also possible for white spots to form as a result of hypo-calcification. This is caused by mineral loss inside the tooth.
In the vast majority of cases, white spots are a purely cosmetic problem. However, we understand how important aesthetics can be to our patients and offer solutions to help you feel more confident.
Treatment for white spots
There are various treatment options that are beneficial for white spots on the teeth. We provide a unique service called Icon. This minimally invasive treatment restores natural tooth colour without the use of drills. Using the process of infiltration, Icon blends the white spots in with the rest of the tooth to transform your smile and restore its natural beauty.
The first stage of the treatment process involves applying HCI-Etch gel to the tooth to etch the surface. We then apply ethanol to the tooth to dry the gel. Stage two of the treatment is the infiltration stage. The Icon-Infiltrant permeates the enamel to rid your tooth of white spots and create a stunning aesthetic.
Another solution is intensive abrasive cleaning, which helps to remove the spots and give the smile a healthy glow. Our expert hygienists use the latest cleaning techniques, such as air abrasion, to banish surface stains quickly.
