White Patches on Teeth - Causes and Management

Certified Implantologist, Aesthetic , BDS

White Patches on Teeth - Causes and Management

White patches on teeth are formed due to many reasons. There are many factors contributing to this. The appearance of the white patches is just like tiny white patches or spots randomly here and there on the teeth. They look odd and may give an impression of poor health and hygiene. 

The causes of white patches on the teeth

White patches are formed on the teeth for the following common reasons:

  • If the teeth are ill formed during development and more calcium is released than required during the development stages, then the excess calcium gets deposited on the teeth as the white patches. You may see them as spots which many be light in color or flashy white.
  • Fluorosis is another common factor, which causes the white patches. This occurs in childhood. During the developing years, if the child's teeth get an excess supply of fluorides, then the white patches develop on the teeth.
  • Mineral depletion is another cause for the white patches. This happens mostly for loss of calcium. If calcium is scarce, then the small white spots are developed on teeth, and the problem is referred to as hypocalcification.
  • If you had been wearing braces for years, and didn't take care of teeth around the braces, then also white spots may develop when you take off the braces.

The various ways of treating the white spots
While the damage is done due to hypocalcification in developmental stages or due to excess fluorides in the developing years can't be reversed, but the appearance can definitely be taken care of. The management is done as follows:

  • Tooth bleaching is an option. The bleach brings uniformity in the teeth color and therefore, conceals the discoloration.
  • Air abrasion is another process where tiny crystal particles are blown towards the patches of calcium deposits, and this depletes the calcium. The removal of excess calcium brings a balance in teeth color.
  • If there are dentures or gaps formed in the teeth after removal of calcium deposits, then a filling will be done to add to the portion to bring natural color balance and smoothness.
  • Tooth capping and porcelain veneer can be added or crowned on tooth so that complete concealing is done of the white spots; this is done when in no other way the visible spots can be managed.

Prevention is better than cure and therefore, practicing dental hygiene and oral care is the best way to prevent the problem. Also a periodic dental checkup has to be done in every six months.

After tooth cleaning you often feel sensitivity to cold water coz the tooth area which was covered by calculys and debris is now clean. There dentist must have advised proper medicines and mouthwash for them. Like them you can also go to a dentist and get scaling done if needed otherwise he might suggest you the other options like bleaching or the proper brushing technique whichever is required. He might adk you to avoid certain food items which might be causing stains.

Hi I'm 23 old guy and my gums bleed wen I brush n I feel tat I hv gaps between them coz it used to perfect n strong but it's no longer there. Could u plzzz suggest wat would be the best option.

Bleeding gums is a sign of gum infection & inflammation which happens because of plaque & calculus deposition on tooth & border of gums. You need to get a clean up (oral prophylaxis) done to solve the bleeding problem. As for the gaps between your teeth, if it is too huge & making you conscious about your smile & looks, you need to get braces treatment done. If the gaps are not too wide your problem may be solved with removable wire appliance & you may not need to put braces.

Hi it is advised not to take hard food when you have artificial tooth. Becase artificial teeth have not so much strenght like natural teeth so there can be chance of fracture or hipping out. You shoud avoid hard food like sugar cane, walnut.

You can save your teeth depending on infection present coz the nerve in the tooth is dead so instead of removing the tooth you can restore by rct followed by crown.

Dentist, Supaul
Scaling/Dental Cleanup

Professional scaling is very important to maintain a good oral hygiene. It should be done every six months. It helps in removing plaque, calculus, tartar which keeps depositing on teeth regularly and ultimately damages the teeth making it mobile by receding the gums. It also cause bleeding gums and bad breath. It may lead to several systemic diseases like heart failure, diabetes, liver and kidney distinction etc. So visit your dentist for regular checkup and dental cleaning.
