Treatments for White Spot Lesions
We offer a number of different treatments to improve the appearance of white spot lesions.
Minimal intervention (MI) paste
A paste like Tooth Mousse Plus is applied to the affected surfaces of the teeth. It contains molecules of calcium, phosphate and fluoride that remineralise and strengthen the enamel. We have stock of Tooth Mousse available, so let our kind receptionists know if you may want to purchase some.
A mild abrasive is used to remove a thin layer of the enamel along with the lesion, followed by at-home application of MI paste for a period of time to remineralise the enamel.
Bleach-based whitening can help balance the colour of the enamel and reduce the appearance of white spot lesions. This is often done after enamel micro-abrasion to improve the results. Find out more about whitening here.
The pores of the teeth with white spots are infiltrated by a tooth coloured resin similar to that used in white coloured fillings. The appearance of the white spot lesion is brought closer in shade to the surrounding tooth. Resin infiltration is minimally invasive and has great results. Find out more here.
The surface of the tooth is drilled away and a thin porcelain veneer is fitted and attached to the tooth to achieve a very aesthetic result.
