White Spot Therapy – Make Your Smile Shine

White spots on teeth impact the look of a smile and indicate damage to the tooth—correct white spots to restore your confidence and support oral health.

Do you have white spots on your teeth that disrupt your beautiful smile? Are you curious about how to remove white spots on teeth after braces? If so, ask us about white spot therapy at Atlanta Smiles.

We specialize in cosmetic dentistry but also find the best solutions to maintain the health of your teeth. We use an innovative and non-invasive treatment option to correct the color of the teeth.

What is White Spot Therapy?

White spot treatment covers the discoloration on the tooth to produce the appearance of cohesive coloring.

Until recently, dentists had only a few nonoptimal choices for treating white spots. Fluoride treatments work to remineralize enamel in the early stages of decalcification. However, this treatment is only somewhat effective and only works if used early. Also, teeth whitening procedures can work, but it’s challenging to produce even whitening with spotting on the teeth.

Additionally, dental fillings, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns are an option. Yet, these treatments can remove a significant amount of your tooth’s structure. If white spots are the only issue, a non-invasive option offers a better solution.

At Atlanta Smiles, we use Icon® to treat white spots on teeth and restore the tooth’s health and beauty.

What Causes White Spots on Teeth?

Decalcification of tooth enamel over time leads to white spots on teeth. Patients with braces frequently develop white spots, which become noticeable after the braces come off.

Common Causes of White Spots

  • Braces
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Buildup of plaque
  • Staining from food and beverages
  • Dry mouth
  • Genetics

Individuals who wear braces are more likely to develop white spots due to the difficulty of brushing under and around brackets and wires from braces. However, anyone can develop white spots.

When individuals fail to properly clean teeth, acids left behind by food debris and bacteria sit on the enamel structure of the teeth for too long and start leeching out the calcium from the enamel. Dry mouth also causes decalcification. A lack of saliva prevents the proper washing away of harmful acids from the teeth.

Whatever the reason for the white spots, it’s best to address the problem early. On top of the apparent cosmetic impact of white spots, they can also increase your risk of getting cavities. Keep your teeth healthy with white spot therapy.

How Can You Get Rid of White Spots on Your Teeth?

White spot therapy from Atlanta Smiles restores the color of teeth. We work with you each step of the way to find the best solution for your smile. As experts in dental health and cosmetic dentistry, we’re able to develop a customized treatment plan unique for your teeth.

We recommend Icon® for effective white spot treatment. Icon® corrects white spots without the need for anesthesia or invasive dental tools. This innovative treatment option stops the progression of white spots without using needles or drills. Plus, it does not compromise the structure of the teeth.

What Is the Process for Icon® White Spot Treatment?

As with each dental procedure, we begin with a consultation. Our goal is patient satisfaction which means we want you to understand all aspects of the process before starting.

We outline the treatment plan during the consultation, including the exact teeth involved, the price, and the timeline for treatment. The Icon® procedure typically only requires one visit.

Treatment with Icon® applies a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth’s surface to cover the white spot. The resin material infiltrates the pores of the tooth. Then, we use a blue light to activate the material and allow the white spot to take on the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel.

With Icon®, the treatment is quick, non-invasive, and prolongs the overall life expectancy of your natural teeth. Because the procedure is non-invasive, recovery is easy.

What Are the Benefits of White Spot Therapy?

While white spot therapy improves the appearance of your smile, it also aids in dental health. By investing in Icon® treatment, you invest in cavity prevention. White spot elimination provides effective and reliable results if you need a solution after braces or from other discoloration.

How Long Does White Spot Treatment Last?

With Icon®, you achieve long-term results. Typically, the treatment offers stability for a minimum of two years. However, many patients show stable results for over six years. Patients’ oral hygiene can impact the lifespan of white spot treatment.

Regular dental visits and cleanings help maintain the health and appearance of teeth. Daily brushing and flossing also remove food that creates acid damage to the teeth over time. Plus, consuming food or beverages that stain teeth can impact the white appearance of the teeth.

The bottom line is your dental hygiene habits influence your outcomes and the stability of the Icon® treatment. With proper care, patients find outstanding results from white spot treatment.

How Can You Prevent White Spots from Forming?

Just like with maintaining your white spot treatment, good oral hygiene helps prevent white spots from forming in the first place. Brush and floss your teeth regularly to protect the enamel from damage. Also, avoid sugary foods and acidic drinks that wear down tooth enamel.

Schedule regular checkups and cleanings with your dentist to address any issues quickly and identify the white spot development early. Practice good teeth care to avoid white spots and other unwanted problems with your teeth.
