We understand perfectly well why you might be concerned about the discovery of a white spot on your tooth. After all, your smile is an important part of who you are, and it is only natural to want to maintain it to the best of your ability. Not to worry, we are here to enlighten you – removing white stains from teeth is possible.
A white spot on a tooth, more technically termed “tooth discoloration”, is not a cause for panic, but rather a warning signal for your oral health. To understand this, we first need to look at tooth enamel, the shiny protective layer that coats the surface of our teeth. The enamel is what gives our teeth their shine and whiteness, and it’s also what protects them from external attack.
However, tooth enamel can sometimes be affected by certain alterations, such as enamel hypoplasia or fluorosis staining. These terms, although technical, will be explained simply and clearly in the following sections, so that you can understand them easily.
These famous white spots are due to a loss of minerals in your tooth enamel. The causes can be varied: a diet rich in sugars, poor oral hygiene, or even an excess of fluoride in your drinking water or toothpaste.
There are several types of white spots. Some are barely noticeable, while others are more obvious and can affect a large part of the tooth. Whatever type of white stain you have, we have the skills and expertise to remedy it.
The best way to prevent white stains is to maintain good oral hygiene. This means brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups. In addition, a balanced diet is recommended to ensure good oral health.
At The Smile Clinic, we offer a variety of treatments to remove white spots from your teeth.
Dr. Ralph Badaoui uses a technique called microabrasion. It’s a gentle, effective method for removing surface white stains and restoring your teeth’s natural radiance.
If you prefer, we also offer professional teeth whitening treatments to give your teeth a more even shade.
For more complicated cases, we offer other aesthetic solutions, such as veneers, to hide stains and give you a perfect smile.
Finally, dental remineralization can help strengthen enamel and prevent the formation of new stains. This can involve the use of special toothpastes and mouthwashes, as well as dietary changes.
