White Spot Treatment in Kingsley

woman in dental chairWhite spots on teeth can form for many reasons. Sometimes, it’s just the way the teeth have formed, while in other cases it can be caused by decay or even by certain foods. If the spots are naturally occurring and the appearance doesn’t bother you, there is no danger in leaving them alone.

However, if you don’t like the appearance of your teeth because of the white spots, or if they’re caused by decay, Serene Smiles Perth may be able to help.

Our Approach

The first thing we’ll do is determine the cause of your white spots. From there, we’ll be able to make customised recommendations about how to address them. We offer a wide range of cutting-edge technology and services to treat white spot lesions, and we will create a care plan to address your specific situation.

If the spots are simply a result of how your teeth were formed, we can sometimes blend the spot in to match the rest of the tooth without removing any tooth material. In white spot lesions that are caused by decay, we will use a different approach that may involve removing the decay and restoring the tooth to health. We’ll explain everything so you have a full understanding of the process before you commit to care.

Depending on the number of teeth involved and the cause of the spots, you may require multiple appointments.

Recent Case Study

Techniques: Micro-abrasion, whitening and resin infiltration

Process: The first step in the process was micro-abrasion which is a process involving the use of a special abrasive gel to remove the superficial tooth stains.

This was then followed by the use of a tooth-strengthening agent at home plus take-home whitening for 3 weeks. Usually, these two steps are enough for most people.

Some of the larger/deeper white spots may not be completely eradicated and in this case, we use resin infiltration which as the name suggests. Resin is used to infiltrate into the layers of enamel to change the way they reflect light and this reduces the appearance of the white spots.

All of the above involve NO removal of tooth structure and are minimally invasive to ensure the tooth remains as healthy as possible.

For this patient, most of the white spots were resolved using the first two steps and only the front two teeth with the larger white spot areas were then treated with resin infiltration.

Can White Spots Be Prevented?

There’s nothing we can do to prevent white spots from occurring naturally in the way your teeth are formed. However, white spots due to decay can typically be prevented by using good oral hygiene and reducing your sugar intake. Seeing us every six months for a thorough cleaning will also help.
