Icon White Spot Treatment
Icon is a minimally invasive restorative treatment for white spot lesions (WSLs) on teeth. WSLs are associated with an imbalance between demineralization and remineralization of the enamel. The lesions appear white due to the of scattering of light at the subsurface of the demineralized enamel. These are common after orthodontic treatment. Hypomineralization spots can also appear white, and these are from trauma or infection involving the primary teeth.

This is a conservative way to improve the esthetics of your teeth. We cannot guarantee that white spots will disappear completely but this procedure offers an improvement in one visit and is less expensive than bonding or veneers. Follow ups are recommended at your regular dental cleaning and checkups.
