White Spots on Teeth Pennington NJ

It may seem contradictory to have white spots on teeth. These stains are actually an indication of the demineralization of tooth enamel which may or may not lead to cavities. Dr. Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci offers a revolutionary treatment for white spots on teeth for a significant improvement in the aesthetics and health of the tooth.

Treatment for White Spots on Teeth

Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci is one of the first dentists in Pennington to offer Icon dental treatment for white spots on teeth. This is a minimally invasive technique that helps to reinforce the tooth enamel and reduce the appearance of white stains on teeth.

How Icon Dental Treatment Works:
First, the dentist covers the gums and teeth for protection and comfort. Next, the affected teeth are cleaned and rinsed. Then, a hydrochloric acid, called Icon-Etch, is applied to the tooth and left on for approximately 2 minutes. The etching process produces a surface that is ready to accept the icon filling treatment.

For the next part of the procedure, the dentist applies a special Icon-Infiltrant solution to the tooth, which is set with a special curing light. A second layer may be applied for desired results. The tooth is polished to a smooth luster.

The Icon dental treatment results in a significant reduction in the appearance of white spots on teeth. This innovative treatment can help to stop the demineralization of tooth enamel and prevent the formation of cavities.

More Treatment for White Spots on Teeth

In addition to advanced Icon dental treatment, Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci offers MI Paste for either in-office or at-home treatment of white spots on teeth. MI Paste is an innovative product that restores vital minerals to teeth, cuts down on tooth sensitivity, and helps with acid erosion. MI Paste is safe and easy to use. It can be applied daily as part of your oral hygiene routine.

If you have sensitive teeth or white spots on teeth, ask about MI Paste during your next appointment. Or contact us online.

What causes white spots on teeth?

Most commonly, dentists and patients notice white spots on teeth after braces. During orthodontic treatment with metal braces, food particles and other debris may become trapped against the tooth, causing erosion of tooth enamel and leaving a white stain on teeth.

Other potential causes for white spots on teeth are:

  • Heavy plaque accumulation
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Diets high in sugar or acid (such as soda drinkers or citrus fruit eaters)
  • Fluorosis
  • Hypoplasia
  • Hypocalcification
  • Erosion
  • Tetracycline staining
  • Xerostoma
  • Trauma

  • You have been such a great support in the care for our mother over these years. I wanted to keep her pain free and you helped us with that. The last miraculous feat was the saving of that front tooth that broke. It made me smile because she hated that her teeth were discolored. She would have LOVED that shiny white tooth!! Thank you for that and, for contributing to alzheimer's research in her name.

  • I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because I had bad experiences. Then a friend referred me to the Spa Dentistry office. I usually see Dr. Silk. I have a lot of confidence in him and am very comfortable with everyone in the office now. The office is beautiful and comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional and always makes you feel comfortable. I had two bridges done that have worked out great! I highly recommend the dental group to anyone because they are very personable and always make me feel comfortable.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Vagnozzi Bucci Spa Dental Practice since April 2002 and I’m extremely happy. I have dental insurance that I cannot use at the office however, I still choose to go there. The whole staff is superior in their technical abilities, attitude and professionalism. Every procedure I have had done there has exceeded my expectations. Painless dentistry at its finest. I can not use enough adjectives to describe and praise these doctors and professional staff. It’s not the dentistry you remember from your childhood; this is the dental practice of the future.

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for taking such good care of my aunt while she and my uncle were in the states from Australia. They were thrilled with her new teeth and told us you were amazing! I know medical/dental care is no where near as good in the U.K. or Australia as it is here, so I am glad if she had to have treatment, it was done by you. Thanks you again; I owe you one, but hope you don’t need any physical therapy anytime soon...
