White spot lesions

What Are They?

White spots on teeth are normally a loss of mineral content on the enamel surface.

White spots are the result of numerous factors:

  • Fluorosis
  • Loss of minerals
  • Poor hygiene while undergoing orthodontic treatment
  • Consumption of acidic foods and drinks
  • Acid reflux
  • Celiac disease
  • Genetic disorders

What Can Be Done?

Micro-abrasion – Enamel micro-abrasion is safe, nonrestorative, conservative treatment that works both chemically and mechanically to remove up to 0.2 mm of affected enamel. Once the micro-abrasion is completed, tooth mousse will be applied for a couple of minutes.
