  • Offering patients to wait in their cars if they prefer.
  • Insisting that all people who enter the building use hand sanitiser (provided).

Are you suffering from white spots on your teeth? You might have white spots on your teeth for several reasons, including dental fluorosis, enamel hypoplasia, poor dental hygiene, and eating too many acidic or sugary foods. While you may feel they are undesirable, there is a good chance your cosmetic dentist can successfully remove them. 

Read on to learn more about white spots on your teeth and how to remove them.

Possible causes of white spots on teeth

Dental fluorosis: typically, this condition results from consuming too much fluoride as a child. It’s usually a harmless condition that tends to develop before the teeth break through the gums.

Enamel hypoplasia: occurs when tooth enamel fails to form properly. Like fluorosis, hypoplasia only occurs during childhood when the teeth are still developing. However, it can increase the risk of tooth decay.

Poor dental hygiene: failing to properly care for your teeth when wearing braces or eating too many acidic or sugary foods might cause tooth discolouration.


There are several possible treatments for white spots on the teeth. 

  1. Enamel microabrasion: During this procedure, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth to reduce the appearance of the white spots. Typically, your dentist will recommend professional teeth whitening after this procedure, so teeth appear more uniform in color.


  1. Teeth whitening or bleaching: whitening or bleaching teeth can help to reduce the appearance of white spots and other stains. We recommend booking an appointment with your dentist for a professional tooth whitening assessment.


  1. Veneersdental veneers are thin porcelain or resin facings placed over the visible part of your front teeth, covering the tooth’s front surface. Veneers are fantastic for covering white spots and other blemishes. 

Practice good dental hygiene

Practicing excellent dental hygiene can help prevent some white spots on teeth and other stains, tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental problems. We recommend you brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and floss once daily. For most people, white spots on teeth develop before they reach ten years old. Establishing good dental hygiene in children is essential to ensure their teeth stay healthy and strong.

Talk to your cosmetic dentist in Perth

Talk to your dentist if you are concerned about your dental health. While white spots on your teeth aren’t’ particularly attractive, they are usually not a cause for concern. However, if you have enamel hypoplasia, you might be at increased risk of dental damage and decay.
