White Spots –
Resin Infiltration Therapy
Treatment for White Spots After Braces – Resin Infiltration Therapy
THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF WHITE SPOTS ON TEETH IS THE LOSS OF MINERAL CONTENT FROM THE ENAMEL OR THE OUTSIDE HARD LAYER OF THE TOOTH.
The chalky-white areas are due to loss of mineral from the surface – a process known as demineralization. These spots can be a significant cosmetic concern, especially right after braces/orthodontics. The spots are also the early signs of tooth decay.
HOW DO YOU TREAT TEETH WITH WHITE SPOTS?
We, at Smiles of Virginia Family Dental Center, always prefer a conservative approach. Resin Infiltration Therapy is a new, noninvasive technique, to lessen the appearance of white spots and help rebuild the white demineralized areas without taking away any enamel or tooth structure. The system was originally developed in Europe, but is now approved for treatment in the US. Dr. Oestervemb and Dr. DeWeerd uses this system to help minimize the appearance of white spots. The system is painless and very fast. Most of our patients have had great results after one visit. We are so proud to offer our patients yet another cutting edge treatment option.
