What is Icon?
Icon is a cutting-edge dental resin infiltration system. Using Icon, our pediatric dentists are able to treat both early-stage cavities (caries), without the need for cavity drilling, as well as treat undesirable white spots on teeth.
How can resin infiltration treat dental cavities?
When tooth enamel is attacked by cariogenic acids, teeth become porous. With resin infiltration, teeth can be sealed so that acids can no longer penetrate the surface. This effectively stops the progression of dental cavities at an early stage. As a result, the healthy tooth structure is preserved, without the need for drilling.
How can resin infiltration help remove white spots on teeth?
White spots on teeth are quite common, particularly for patients who undergo orthodontic treatment. When discoloration appears, resin infiltration with Icon can be an effective treatment for removing white spots on teeth. Dental resin infiltration is a gentle method for counteracting white spots, which works by filling in the spots where the tooth has become porous and discolored with the existing, healthy enamel of the tooth. This innovative method is often used in the treatment of front teeth, where aesthetic appearance is particularly important.
