It is amazing to see that people are taking care of their dental health, more than ever. Along with that, people are also conscious about their physical appearance and want to feel their best selves when they are with friends and in public.

If you or your child has white spots/dark spots or there are evident stains on the teeth which are affecting your confidence to speak and laugh, it is time to get them removed. One of the best ways to do so is by getting enamel microabrasion.

There can be a number of reasons because of people an individual might get spots/stains on teeth, e.g., mineralized white spots, fluorosis, amelogenesis, hypoplasia.

What is microabrasion?

Enamel Microabrasion

Microabrasion is a common and safe cosmetic dentistry treatment that is used all over the world for treating stains and spots on teeth. By using certain chemicals, this treatment gets rid of unwanted stains mechanically.

Similar to teeth whitening methods, microabrasion helps people in getting rid of the marks, spots on their teeth. While teeth whitening is a chemical treatment, microabrasion is a mechanical procedure.

In this treatment, abrasive and acidic chemicals are used. for instance, 37% of phosphoric acid might be used with 6% of hydrochloric acid and silica to apply on the enamel surface. In some cases, bleaching is also combined with the micro-abrasive technique for better results.

In this method, the porous enamel surface layer is actually removed from the tooth along with any entrapped stains. This happens by rubbing a gel which is a combination of an abrasive and acidic compound.
