Nowadays, the importance of detecting and treating carious lesions before they turn into irreversible cavitations in dental tissue has been understood. The white spot lesion is the first visual finding of enamel caries. At this stage, it is possible to stop the caries formation and even heal the formed sub-surface lesion by various methods. Most dentists have difficulties while choosing preventive or interventional treatment methods for these situations. In line with the basics of minimally invasive dentistry, this review aims to provide an understanding of the histological character of white spot lesions and to inform clinicians about current methods of detection and treatment, and to approach these cases in their clinical routine with a minimally invasive perspective.
