Icon is a white spot removal treatment which doesn’t involve any drilling or removal of a healthy part of tooth.
The treatment works by infiltrating the pores of the tooth where the white spot is located via a tooth-coloured resin. A special gel is applied to the white spot to open up the pores, to enable a deep penetration of the resin. The resin is then light-cured, while the white spot infiltrated by the resin takes on
the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel. The resin also blocks acids that can make enamel wear away, and it can help preserve the tooth from additional decay. This results in a beautiful, healthy and aesthetically pleasing all over white smile.
The beauty of Icon White Spot Treatment is that due to it’s minimally invasive technique, no drills are used and no anaesthetic is necessary; the whole process is very quick too.
