  • Patients can whiten their teeth at any time without needing re-treatment.

What is ICON Treatment?

ICON white spot treatment is a resin infiltration technique used to eliminate discoloration caused by white spots on teeth. Most white spots result from enamel fluorosis or hypocalcification, where the minerals within your tooth enamel appear whiter than the surrounding tooth structure.

ICON treatment offers a minimally invasive, quick, and painless way to reduce the appearance of white spots on teeth. Unlike bleaching treatments that alter the tooth’s color, ICON works directly with the tooth’s structure. While bleaching can change the color of teeth, it cannot reverse or repair the damage caused by white spots themselves. In contrast, ICON treatment fills in and disguises the white spots, helping to restore the tooth’s natural appearance.

Who Can Benefit from ICON Treatment?

Many individuals struggling with white spots on their teeth find these discolorations challenging to remove. They typically do not respond to regular whitening treatments, as the mineral composition inside the white spot reacts differently to bleaching agents than the denser enamel surrounding it. The only other option is to physically remove that portion of the tooth and fill it in, similar to a dental filling.

Fortunately, ICON is a non-invasive and effective treatment that targets and removes white spots on teeth without any numbing or drilling. ICON patients can achieve a more even and consistent tooth color, resulting in a more natural appearance.

Patients who may benefit from ICON treatment include those with:

  • White spots on teeth after braces removal
  • Remineralized tooth enamel
  • Enamel hypoplasia or fluorosis

Additionally, teeth treated with ICON can be whitened at any point in the future without the treated white spot standing out from the surrounding enamel.

How Does ICON Treatment Work?

ICON is a form of resin infiltration, a process used to treat white spots on teeth using a “flowable” type of transparent material. It works by saturating the white spot on the tooth with a special resin, filling in the open, dense voids responsible for causing the white spots.

This helps to create a more consistent tooth color and an even-colored smile. The resin also seals the enamel, preventing further staining or discoloration. The treatment is quick and easy, taking less than 30 minutes. The results are long-lasting and can last up to five years with proper care.

Benefits of ICON Treatment

ICON is one of the most effective and fastest white spot treatments available, outperforming typical bleaching treatments or invasive tooth alterations.

As a non-invasive treatment, no drilling or irreversible tooth reshaping is required during the procedure. You can maintain your natural tooth structure without worrying about the cost of bonding, veneers, or updating restorations every few years.

Additionally, ICON is a clear material that uses advanced resin infiltration technology, which is transparent and matches the natural color of the teeth when applied. This means the same ICON material can be placed on any tooth, regardless of its shade, as it naturally blends in with the surrounding tooth by reflecting light, minimizing color inconsistencies. Furthermore, the treated area becomes more resistant to acid attack than the healthy enamel around it.

Thanks to the infiltration technique used by ICON, patients can whiten their teeth at any point in the future without worrying about the white spot reappearing. This means that even if you decide to whiten your teeth later, you won’t have to worry about the ICON treatment not responding the same as your surrounding teeth (unlike traditional bonding or other composite materials).
