Causes of White Spots

White-Spot Lesions, also known as WLS occurs when the mineralization and remineralization on the teeth are out of balance. This means that some parts of the enamel contain a higher concentration of minerals than others, leading to uneven coloration. Some of the causes of white spots include:

  • Diet – Your diet can affect the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, especially if you consume a lot of acidic foods and drinks. Over time, these can break down your enamel, leaving your teeth looking dull and yellow. Sugar also leads to plaque buildup, which erodes enamel if left untreated.
  • Dental Fluorosis – Fluoride is an important part of keeping your teeth strong, healthy, and resistant to decay. However, too much fluoride—especially at a young age, while your permanent teeth are forming —can lead to white spots all over the teeth. This is called fluorosis.
  • Enamel Hypoplasia – Enamel Hypoplasia or enamel reduction is a condition in which the enamel of your teeth is thinner than what is considered normal. This can happen due to many factors, such as having a poor diet, taking certain medications, or having an autoimmune disorder. Sometimes, it’s due to genetic factors and can happen during pregnancy.
  • Plaque – Plaque buildup is a common result of poor brushing habits and orthodontic devices like traditional braces. This can cause demineralization of the teeth, which shows up as white spots that are often visible after brackets are removed or along the gumline.

What to Expect During an Icon Treatment

The treatment time will typically take less than one hour to complete. Since no local anesthesia is required, you’ll be in and out of the dental office with a refreshed smile in no time! Here is a general overview of how Icon treatment corrects WSL.

  • Your dentist uses a micro-abrasion to slightly remove the surface of the white spots on your teeth to expose the porous layer underneath.
  • While the teeth are kept dry, Dr. Feng applies a special resin to the area so that the resin soaks into the affected area and forms a strong bond with it.
  • After the resin is applied, any excess resin is removed, and a special light (curing light) is used to harden the resin that is still inside the tooth.
  • Dr. Feng finishes your Icon treatment by polishing your teeth to give them a more uniform appearance.

Common Icon Treatment Questions

The longevity of your Icon dental treatment depends on various factors, including the state of your oral health, your diet, and your adherence to proper cleaning and maintenance practices. On average, treatment with Icon lasts between two to five years.

If you suffer from white spots on your teeth, Icon may be the right treatment for you. It can help to correct the discoloration of your teeth in a simple way, and it’s a great alternative to more invasive procedures such as porcelain veneers. Icon treatment is perfect for young children, teenagers, and adults with white spots from traditional orthodontic treatment.

With the help of an examination at our Fairview, TX office location, Dr. Feng can help to determine which treatment option is best for you or your child.

In most cases, white spots on teeth are considered more of a cosmetic issue than a health concern. While white spots on the teeth are usually not harmful, this aesthetic problem can cause concern due to its appearance. Over time, these white spots can even contribute to tooth decay and sensitivity. If you’re concerned, it’s important to seek out the advice of a qualified dental professional.
