Have you noticed white spots on your teeth and wondered what they are and what you can do about them? Baltimore dentist Dr. Ed Lazer offers professional tooth whitening treatments for white spots on teeth for a significant improvement in the esthetics and health of the tooth.
What Causes White Spots On Teeth?
White spots on teeth may be an indication of the demineralization of tooth enamel which may or may not lead to cavities. White spots on teeth are most commonly found on patients after wearing braces. During orthodontic treatment with metal braces, food particles and other debris become trapped against the teeth and cause the tooth enamel to erode, leaving white stains on your teeth.
Other potential causes for white stains on teeth are fluorosis, hypoplasia, hypocalcification, erosion, tetracycline staining, xerostoma, and trauma. Heavy plaque accumulation, poor oral hygiene, diets high in sugar or acid (such as soda drinkers or citrus fruit eaters) may be another cause for white spots on teeth.
