What are white spots?
White spots are very common and can be caused by a range of factors including fluorosis from high fluoride intake when the adult teeth are developing, and decalcification – the loss of minerals from the enamel. This is sometimes the result of fixed brace treatment if there has been a lapse in hygiene in the areas surrounding the brackets. In more rare cases, white spots can also be a result of molar incisal hypoplasia caused due to suffering trauma as a baby.
Many people mistake white spots or mottling for staining and think that uniform colour could be restored by whitening. However, the spots would remain lighter in colour than the rest of the tooth. To be rid of white spots forever takes Icon – a non-invasive treatment that targets the pores.Enquire now
