What Are the White Spots on Teeth?
You may have had white spots on your teeth since childhood, or perhaps they have recently appeared. Either way, they are actually quite common. It can be extremely noticeable in some people, especially if it affects their front teeth.
White spots appear when there is a loss of minerals on the enamel. So, what causes this? Here are some reasons as to why you may have noticed some discolouration on your teeth:
- Decalcification – If you’ve previously worn fixed braces, in particular, classic metal braces, then you may end up with white spots. This is because they can be hard to clean, which results in a decline in your oral hygiene.
- Fluorosis – When teeth are developing from a child into an adult, consumption of too much fluoride can cause white spots.
- Molar Incisal Hypoplasia – This condition can affect the enamel, making it more susceptible to white spots.
- Pregnancy Complications – If there are any issues or illness during pregnancy, this could affect the child’s teeth and white spots may appear.

To begin, the tooth is prepared with a special gel to open up the pores. The tooth is then dried, ready for Icon white spot removal.
The Icon resin is applied, and is able to penetrate deep into the tooth thanks to the open pores.
The resin is then light-cured which fills in the air pockets, allowing it to take on the appearance of the rest of the tooth’s healthy enamel. The Icon treatment also blocks acids that could otherwise wear down the enamel, helping to fight tooth decay.
