  • They will start decreasing in size and fade aways and these results can be visible as early as 3 weeks. After they completely fade away you can stop using.

  • If there is just a white spot and no catch point then this can be remineralized by using fluoridated toothpaste and fluoridated mouthwash. Maintain very good oral hygiene so that futher decay is not there. The brown spots can be the stains which can be easily removed. Such white spots which get remineralized by fluoride are called incipient lesions. They are just initial start of caries which donot need any restoration.
