Resin Infiltration: Make those white spots disappear! By Dr. Meek on February 07, 2023

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive procedure for managing white spots on front teeth. It works by penetrating the enamel surface layer and filling any defects within it, preventing the underlying dentin from being exposed to staining agents like food, beverages, or smoking. The resin infiltrant also helps to decrease any visible discoloration of the tooth and blend in with surrounding natural color. Besides, resin infiltration can help reduce the risk of further decay and provide an aesthetic improvement without needing major restorative treatment. This technique is suitable for managing small to medium-sized white spot lesions that are not too deep. Additionally, resin infiltration often requires only one office visit and is generally painless while providing fast results with minimal discomfort.

Overall, resin infiltration is a cost-effective and minimally invasive solution for managing white spots on front teeth. It is suitable for those who are looking for an aesthetic improvement without needing major restorative treatment. However, resin infiltration may not be the ideal solution for larger or deep discoloration as it requires more extensive restoration such as veneers or crowns to cover them up completely.
