Have you ever wondered why some teeth have little white spots on them? Have you ever wondered if there were ways to remove them?
These white spots occur from one of two general ways. They may be intrinsic, present since birth, and these are from problems during tooth development and these go deep into the tooth. Unfortunately there is no easy fix for these deep discolorations. But the most common kind are extrinsic, such as white spots from Braces, new stains, and from tiny cavities that never got deep.
Microabrasion is the process of removing this superficial defective enamel. This is a one-appointment procedure. Microabrasion is a simple and inexpensive way of treating these unsightly “white-spots” that is also less invasive than drilling in the healthy teeth.
