What causes white spots?
White spots on teeth are areas that appear whiter or more opaque than the surrounding enamel. They can be caused by various factors, including:
- Dental fluorosis: Excessive fluoride intake during tooth development, often from sources like fluoridated water or toothpaste, can result in white spots.
- Enamel hypoplasia occurs when the enamel doesn’t develop properly, leaving areas of the teeth vulnerable to discoloration.
- Poor dental hygiene: Insufficient oral care can lead to the buildup of plaque, which can cause white spots and, eventually, cavities.
- Diet: Consuming acidic or sugary foods and beverages can erode tooth enamel, leading to white spots.
- Orthodontic braces: Sometimes, white spots can develop around braces due to difficulty cleaning your teeth properly.
These white spots are typically a cosmetic concern and, in most cases, do not cause significant health problems. At Laser Dentistry of Erie, we’re here to help you feel confident in your smile again.
Our white spots treatment
At Laser Dentistry of Erie, we help you deal with stubborn white spots on your teeth. We offer professional treatments to help you achieve an even, gorgeous smile.
We provide a range of teeth whitening solutions tailored to your specific requirements, including in-office whitening treatments, take-home trays, and professional whitening strips.
Veneers are thin shells, usually made of porcelain or composite resin, that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They’re used to enhance the appearance of teeth, often to correct issues like discoloration, misalignment, or damage, creating a more aesthetically pleasing and uniform smile.
We recommend scheduling a routine dental cleaning every six months. This not only helps prevent calcium deposits, but also assists in addressing and reducing those white spots on your teeth.
Are you ready to achieve an amazing smile? Don’t hesitate to contact us at (814) 825-2615. Let’s discuss how we can help you regain confidence and achieve your perfect smile.
