How Icon White Spot Treatment Can Help
What Are White Spots?
White spots on the teeth are small lesions usually caused by either fluorosis, caused by an excessive intake of flouride, demineralisation from infection, injury or the recent removal of braces, or generally poor oral heath and a build up of plaque.
The white spots are generally due to the natural layer of enamel on the tooth being thinner or less mineralised than it should be.
This leads to pits being formed on the tooth surface. These pits are more porous than the layer of enamel leaving the tooth more susceptible to staining and decay.
Thankfully, all of the above mentioned causes of white spots are reversible with Icon white spot treatment.
What Is Icon White Spot Treatment?
Icon white spot treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure where the lesions on your teeth are given a permanent seal. This starves the bacteria on the tooth and prevents the lesion from further development.
It does not require any drilling, injections, or any removal of the tooth’s surface as Icon only repairs the damaged tooth surface.
Icon white spot treatments have two main benefits; it improves the appearance of teeth and also prevents interdental decay.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
As previously stated, Icon white spot treatment is a minimally invasive procedure. This means there is no drilling or removal of the tooth surface.
The procedure begins with a layer of Icon Etch gel which opens the surface layer of the tooth. This is applied to the affected teeth for 2 minutes before being washed off.
Next, Icon Dry is used to dry and prepare the tooth surface ready for a layer of Icon Infiltrator, the resin substance that will repair your tooth and create a consistent tooth surface.
Once the Icon Infiltrator is applied, a curing light is used to cure the resin.
Once the Icon Infiltraotr is cured, we’ll give your teeth a good polish and you’re good to go.
The whole procedure takes around 15-20 minutes and the results are immediate.
