How to Prevent White Spots on Teeth

White spots on teeth are caused by too much acid and sugar, dental fluorosis, poor dental hygiene, and enamel hypoplasia.

Treatments for white spots on teeth:

  • Teeth bleaching using OTC products or professional whitening by the dentist.
  • Enamel microabrasion, where the dentist removes parts of the enamel.
  • Getting dental veneers to cover the spots.
  • Applying composite resin or topical fluoride.

To prevent white spots:

  • Babies should drink fluoride-free water.
  • Minimise sugary and acidic foods.

Visit the dentist to have your white spots removed or covered.
