Frequently asked questions about white spot treatment

What are the risks of not treating white spots?

Untreated white spots can lead to further enamel degradation and cavities. Early treatment prevents potential complications, preserving your oral health.

Can lifestyle changes prevent white spots?

While lifestyle changes cannot reverse existing white spots, they can prevent future occurrences. Dr. Shumway offers advice on diet, oral hygiene, and fluoride use to keep your smile bright and healthy.

How do tooth-colored fillings and veneers work for white spots?

Tooth-colored composite fillings are applied directly to the tooth, masking white spots, while veneers cover the tooth’s surface, providing a spot-free appearance. Both options are tailored to match your teeth, ensuring a natural look.

Expect a straightforward, comfortable process. With Dr. Shumway’s expertise, the treatment for white spots is minimally invasive, with results that immediately enhance your smile’s appearance and your confidence.
