White spots on teeth can affect your smile and your oral health. Smaller white spots might go unnoticed, but the ones on your front teeth may make you self-conscious and not smile as much.
The Parkcrest Dental team now has ICON to treat white spots on the surfaces of your teeth. This treatment is minimally invasive, and you see results immediately after one treatment. Before this relatively new treatment method, dentists would use a fluoride paste, veneers, or traditional, peroxide-based based teeth whiteners to treat white spots.
ICON works faster than fluoride paste and teeth whiteners, and is less invasive than dental veneers. It’s also very cost-effective compared to other treatment methods.
First things first. You’ll consult with your dentist about whether a white spot treatment with ICON is the right choice for you. You’ll get a chance to voice your concerns, and your doctor will give you a comprehensive dental exam to see what’s happening inside your mouth.
ICON is best for patients who have:
An ICON appointment lasts around 30 minutes, and treatment is very simple. Your dentist will seal each tooth with a special resin that fills the natural pores in the white spot to create a more even-colored smile. The results can last for many years with the proper care regimen of brushing and flossing every day while limiting sugary foods. Your natural smile will be back before you know it!
