These spots are not painful and do not spread, but they can stand out more if the shade of the tooth changes.More

A Conservative Treatment
Veneers or crowns would be to invasive and costly for this treatemnt. The patient did not require numbning for this treatment and the procedure lasted about a half hour with four teeth being treated. The white spots were gently appraided away and a matching resin material was used to blend color and make the area smooth again. These restorations should last years.
