Having white spots on your teeth can be unattractive. White spots come from one of three causes:
- Fluorosis: This happens when there is an excess of fluoride in your system while the teeth are still forming. It can occur from over fluoridated water or ingestion of toothpaste.
- Enamel Hypoplasia: This stems from a medical issue such as a high fever, malnutrition, or as a side effect of certain medications. There is also evidence that prenatal smoking can be a contributing factor.
- Demineralization: This is the removal of minerals from your tooth enamel. It’s an early stage of tooth decay.
Now there is a non-invasive solution.
Icon—The Solution to White Spots
Icon was developed in Europe and has over a decade of success. The process is simple. First, the affected area is pre-treated with a special gel. Another agent is then placed to dry the tooth. Once the tooth is dry, the Icon resin material is applied. It penetrates the affected area, filling and sealing the tooth. No more unsightly white spots. It’s that simple.
Pain Free White Spot Removal
One of the best things about Icon is that the procedure is completely pain-free. There is no need for novocain because there is no drilling.
For many people, fear keeps them away from the dentist. In those cases, often what could have been a quick, easy fix becomes much more complicated. Instead of a simple filling, they may end up needing a root canal treatment. But because of past traumatic experiences, they avoid the quick and easy fix. With Icon, this barrier is taken away. No drilling. No shots. And it’s all done in one appointment.
