Dental Microabrasion

Stained teeth? Pesky white spots? Enamel microabrasion might be for you! Enamel microabrasion is a conservative dental procedure used to remove enamel discolorations and preserve tooth structure.

What causes tooth discoloration?

Two types of staining exist in teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic. The former are surface-level stains from ingested substances such as red wine, coffee, or tobacco. These can be removed with a professional dental cleaning.

Intrinsic staining occurs below the surface of the tooth, within the enamel. Common causes of intrinsic staining include:

Many teenagers who have their braces removed develop white spots around the periphery of where the braces were. These white spots are typically a result of less than ideal oral hygiene throughout the orthodontic treatment leaving the decalcified tooth white. An intrinsic tooth stain is trickier to remove, but it can be done by a variety of methods. So long as the discoloration lies in the outer layer of enamel, microabrasion is a perfect, permanent solution.
