What causes white spots?
White spots are a common dental issue and several different things can cause them to form such as the following:
- Fluorosis is caused from a high fluoride intake during the development of adult teeth.
- Decalcification is the loss of minerals from the tooth’s enamel. This is often due to a lack of good oral hygiene for a period of time.
- Trauma as a baby can lead to white spots as an adult.
How can they be treated?
Many people look to teeth whitening treatments to resolve their white spots, but this does little to help the situation. The white spots will remain a lighter color then the rest of the enamel. One option is bonding or dental veneers. However, these options require removing a portion of the healthy enamel. Innovations have allowed for a new treatment call Icon. Icon helps to restore the natural color of the tooth by helping to blend the white spots in with the rest of the tooth.
