What Are White Spot Lesions?
White spots on teeth are normally a loss of mineral content on the enamel surface.
White spots are the result of numerous factors:
- Fluorosis – It takes place due to a high intake of flouride
- Enamel erosion due to plaque buildup
- Consumption of acidic foods and drinks
- Acid reflux
- Celiac disease
- Genetic disorders
- Decalcification caused by wearing fixed braces leading to loss of minerals from the enamel if you had didn’t maintain good oral hygiene during the orthodontic treatment
How is White Spot Lesions Treated?
ICON treatment – It is one of the best minimally invasive procedures for white spots that don’t involve any drilling or removal of a healthy part of the tooth. It uses an infiltrating technique to blend the white spot with the rest of the tooth by opening and infiltration of pores at the white spot area with tooth coloured resin which then helps blend the area with the rest of the tooth. The resin further blocks acids that cause enamel to wear away, thus preventing the tooth from any further decay resulting in a healthy and beautiful pleasing smile
Micro-abrasion – Enamel micro-abrasion is a 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.
