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 Mottling?

White spots on the teeth are very common and can have many causes including:

  • Tooth related trauma when the adult teeth are developing in childhood
  • Enamel Hypoplasia; the enamel doesn’t form properly in utero
  • Fluorosis caused by too high a fluoride intake when the teeth are developing
  • Decalcification caused by the loss of minerals from the tooth enamel during fixed braced treatment or lapses in oral hygiene.

Often people with white spots mistake them or their mottled appearance of their teeth for staining and believe that this can be improved by teeth whitening. Unfortunately the white spots simply remain a lighter colour than the rest of the tooth after whitening and in some cases may be more noticeable

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 an aesthetic smile.
