Icon - White Spot Treatment
Icon is a revolutionary new treatment designed to treat white spots and mottled appearance of teeth with no injections and no drilling.
What causes White Spots and/or Mottling?
White spots on the teeth are very common and can have many causes including:
- Fluorosis - a high fluoride intake as a child when the adult teeth are developing
- Decalcification – the loss of the mineral element from the enamel that can occur during fixed brace treatment if there has been a lapse in the standard of oral hygiene around the orthodontic brackets.
- Childhood illness or trauma to the adult teeth.
Traditionally these white spots would have to be covered with either composite filling material or porcelain veneers. Both of these treatment options usually require drilling and injections to remove the white part of tooth and are thus destructive, as the teeth in question are actually still healthy. The beauty of Icon treatment is that it requires none of these things but using the scientific process of resin infiltration allows the white spot to blend in with the surrounding tooth to provide a beautiful and aesthetic smile.
