White spots on front teeth can be a major esthetic concern for many patients. Icon is a minimally invasive restorative treatment, which minimizes/eliminates white spots on teeth, including those seen after finishing orthodontics (braces) as well as congenital/defective white spots on teeth.
White spots occur on teeth due to uneven mineralization. This means that certain parts of the enamel (the outer layer of the tooth) has a higher concentration of minerals than others, which leads to an unsightly cosmetic appearance. The Icon system corrects the discoloration by infiltrating the enamel and filling in lesions with a tooth colored resin.
This is completed in one visit, and other benefits include no drilling and no numbing ("shots"). This is a fantastic way to treat and fade the appearance of white spots that is much less invasive and less expensive than fillings or other restorations. This procedure is suitable for teenagers, as well as adults! Dr. Pendleton is proud to offer this painless and innovative treatment to his patients.
