White Spots on Teeth? What to do.        

There are several possible causes for white spots on teeth: consuming too much fluoride as a child (dental fluorosis), improperly formed enamel (enamel hypoplasia), poor dental hygiene, and eating too many acidic or sugary foods. Here are ways to combat those spots.

  1. Enamel microabrasion
  2. Teeth whitening or bleaching
  3. Dental veneers
  4. Topical fluoride may encourage development of enamel on the teeth
  5. Composite resin applied to fill in cavities and bond the outer enamel of teeth
  6. Using fluoride-free water for babies who feed on infant formula to prevent excess buildup
  7. Using the right amount of toothpaste for children—for toddlers and babies, a grain of rice amount; for children 3 years and older, a pea-sized amount
  8. Testing well water—natural fluoride levels can vary greatly
  9. Following fluoride supplement recommendations
  10. Reducing sugary and acidic foods and drinks
