What Causes White Spots on Teeth?
There are several reasons that white spots can appear on your teeth. Fortunately, most of the causes are completely harmless, so there’s no need to worry. Plus, at Boston Smile Center, we can remove them and restore your smile. Some reasons that these may appear include:
- Fluorosis happens when children consume large amounts of fluoride as their teeth are still developing. While this substance helps protect teeth, too much of it can cause enamel to appear discolored.
- Enamel hypoplasia occurs as a result of vitamin deficiency, medicinal side-effects, and premature births or prenatal smoking. When your enamel doesn’t fully form and is less mineralized, it leaves your teeth vulnerable to decay and white spots can appear. The color of the blemishes can appear milky-white, brown, or yellow.
- Demineralization of enamel typically occurs as a result of poor oral hygiene or patients who have braces. It happens when harmful oral bacteria wears down enamel and causes decalcification.

How Can You Prevent White Spots on Teeth?
The best way to prevent white spots from forming on teeth is to take preventive measures, including:
- Speak to Dr. Sasson about fluoride intake if you’re pregnant to prevent white spots from occurring on your baby’s developing teeth.
- Quit smoking.
- Be sure to only use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste for children under the age of six.
- Check the fluoridation of your tap water and discuss fluoride treatments with Dr. Sasson.
- If you or your child wears braces, be sure to thoroughly brush around the brackets and wires regularly to reduce the risk of white spots developing.
