Introduction to ICON Resin Infiltration
The ICON treatment can improve the appearance of WSL’s or white/yellow/brown developmental spots on tooth surfaces. Decalcifications are “pre-cavities” and if left untreated can progress into dental cavities that would then require traditional restorative treatment.
With the ICON Resin Infiltrate there is no need for removal of tooth structure (no drilling) and no anesthesia. The goal is to arrest the progression of early cavity lesions. It is a great option for teeth with small lesions that have not progressed enough to require “drilling and filling”.
Benefits of ICON Resin Infiltration
In one visit the placement of the infiltrate can penetrate the teeth surfaces to preserve enamel structure and return the color of the teeth to their natural state! There are no shots or numbing and no drilling. It is much less invasive and less expensive than the alternatives of fillings or veneers. Untreated hypo spots often look worse after bleaching. Hypo spots treated with Icon will whiten similarly to the natural tooth enamel.
