Posted on 9/10/2018 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Where White Spots on Your Teeth Come FromIf you look in the mirror and notice white spots on your teeth you may wonder if something is wrong. The teeth are supposed to be white, but they should not have white spots on them.

Before you panic, you should know that there are several reasons for the white spots. Knowing the possible causes can help you find the right solution.

Causes of White Spots

The causes of the white spots can include something happening in your body, something happening in your teeth are a result of the diet you follow. These are some of the possible causes for white spots.

•  Sugar - A high sugar diet combined with the bacteria on the teeth produce an acidic plaque that eats the enamel away.
•  Orthodontics - Plaque can build up around the braces and that can lead to the white spots appearing.
•  Dry Mouth - One of the roles of saliva is to remove the bacteria that turn into plaque away from the teeth. If the saliva is not present, the white spots are a possible result.
•  Acid Reflux - The reflux can cause enamel erosion which leads to the white spots.
•  Fevers - High fevers and antibiotics used to treat the cause of the fever can cause white spots.
•  Celiac Disease - This is an autoimmune condition that also can cause discoloration of the teeth.
•  Genetics - A family predisposition to white spots is another possible cause.
