Calcium deposits on your teeth are the appearance of white spots also known as calculus or tartar. You can prevent calcium deposits on your teeth by eating nutritious foods and brushing your teeth regularly. Calcium deposits can also be avoided by have a routine check up with your dentist at least once or twice every year. Once you identify that your teeth have white spots, it's important that you don't use whitening agents, which could make the problem worse.
Things You'll Need
- Tooth paste
- Tooth brush
Consult a dentist before seeking types of treatment for getting rid of the calcium deposits and fixing the discoloration. Make sure to see what your dentist feels is the best treatment for you.
Use tooth paste with baking soda and peroxide in it. Also, consider using a stronger tooth brush, such as a motorized tooth brush or one that is made specially for removing calcium build up in your teeth.
Use a fluoride treatment if the cause of the calcium deposits is due to a lack of minerals. This can be performed by your dentist or during a routine checkup. If there are still calcium deposits on your teeth, continue to Step 4.
Have your dentist perform direct bonding to your teeth. Bonding is the addition of veneers to your teeth, which are thin coats of filling placed on the teeth. After the fillings you should no longer see the presence of white spots on your teeth.
Have porcelain laminate veneers added to your teeth if calcium deposits return after bonding. Such veneers are used to correct crowding or replace bonding on your teeth. After time, fillings from bonding can loosen and porcelain laminates are one way to permanently correct the presence of white spots.
