Remove Those Ugly White Spots from Your Teeth Easily

If you want to have a beautiful smile, you need to have a set of healthy, bright teeth. But what if your bright teeth have white spots that make your smile less attractive, making you feel self-conscious when you smile.
 
A renowned oral healthcare specialist in London says, “White spots on the teeth are common and ignoring the problem will not make it go away. In dentistry terms this, condition is called hypo calcification and it can affect people of any age.”

The tooth-whitening expert in Wimbledon also says, that “while the white spots take time to develop to the point that they are visible, when they do people can become self-conscious and even develop low self-esteem. Visiting a dental office to address the problem is going to be the best way forward.”

Probable causes

White spots on the teeth may arise from several different factors, like:

  • Fluorosis – a common oral health issue in which, the enamel of the teeth wears away
  • De-mineralisation or loss of minerals from the teeth
  • De-calcification or loss of calcium
  • Excessive consumption of acidic fruits and drinks
  • Acidity
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Dry mouth

White spots on the teeth can occur, even when you wear braces. If the reason is fluorosis or excessive calcium secretion, you will need to be very careful about your oral health and hygiene.

Treatment alternatives

These unsightly white spots are the first sign that decay is affecting your teeth. Modern dentistry offers a range of treatment alternatives to address the problem. These include:

  • Teeth bleaching
  • Microabrasion
  • Porcelain veneers

These treatment options come at a cost and you will need to visit your oral health expert several times while undergoing treatment.
You could also try a home remedy and these are some of the best:

Use green tea as a mouthwash

Green tea is rich in catechins, which will prevent plaque build-up. The drink is also a great source of fluorine, which keeps your gums and the teeth healthy and strong.

  • Place a green tea bag in a cup of warm water and wait for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the bag and stir the drink with a spoon for a few minutes.
  • When the tea cools, use it as mouthwash.

Do this 2-3 times a day and if you wish, wash the mouth afterwards with lukewarm water to cleanse your mouth of the taste.

Our dentist at the Confidential Dental Clinic says, this is a tried and tested method used to address the problem of white spots on the teeth. You may also try oil, using coconut oil on your teeth. Most importantly, maintain oral hygiene and take care of your teeth and the gums with regular dental check-ups.
