White Spot Treatment

Do you have white spots or mottling on your front teeth? These could be treated with White Spot Treatment.

What Causes White Spots?

White spots on teeth are actually very common. There are a variety of causes which include…

  • Tooth related trauma when the adult teeth are developing in childhood
  • Enamel Hypoplasia
  • Fluorosis caused by too high a fluoride intake when the teeth are developing
  • Decalcification caused by the loss of minerals from the tooth enamel during fixed braced treatment or lapses in oral hygiene.

Often people with white spots mistake them or their mottled appearance of their teeth for staining and believe that this can be improved by teeth whitening. Unfortunately the white spots simply remain a lighter colour than the rest of the tooth after whitening and in some cases may be more noticeable.

In the past the only way to treat teeth with white lesions, spots or mottling would be to cover them using dental veneers or bonding dental composites. These types of treatments require the removal or destruction of healthy tooth material and are not favoured by modern dentists.
