How Icon Works, Advanced Treatment for White Spot Lesions in Burlington

How Icon Works

White spot lesions result from an issue with your enamel that blocks your tooth from absorbing calcium and other ions. The white-ish appearance is the result of light’s interaction with your demineralized tooth. Icon uses a resin infiltrant, which penetrates trouble enamel, fading the appearance of white spots. It preserves the healthy tooth structure and can arrest white spots while still developing and keeping the problem from worsening.

Icon is a long-term treatment solution, unlike whitening. It will last for up to six years, and most patients will see results after a single visit.

What to Expect from an Icon Treatment

Icon is an excellent option for treating white spot lesions. It can be performed in a single visit, providing almost immediate results. It requires no numbing or drilling.

At your first appointment, you will review the benefits of Icon with Dr. Gupta. If Icon is right for you, the procedure is quick and relatively simple. First, Dr. Gupta will clean your teeth, then etch away a small amount of enamel that may block calcium from entering the tooth. He will then smooth the tooth using a dental bur and apply a drying agent. He will then apply Icon’s patented resin infiltrant. It will sit for about three minutes, then cured using a special dental light. Dr. Gupta will repeat this cycle once more before finishing. At this point, he will polish the treated teeth, and you will be good to go—the entire procedure takes about forty-five minutes to complete. The best part is that no freezing is required as there is no enamel removal involved.

If you are living with unsightly white spot lesions or are finishing orthodontics soon and are interested in learning more about Icon or other white spot treatments, make an appointment with Dr. Sam Gupta today. He will partner with you, discuss your goals, and present treatment options that are best suited to your lifestyle and needs.
