Remove white spots with Icon Smooth Surface
Cariogenic white spots are as unwelcomed as they are frequent. Icon’s revolutionary resin infiltration system has been proven for a range of indications, including mild-to-moderate fluorosis, and has been shown to effectively mask white spots on smooth surfaces. Now, there’s a less-invasive solution to treat white spots in just one visit.

Disadvantages of traditional treatment
Onset caries lead to white spots
So-called “white spots” like this on the tooth surfaces often appear after the removal of permanent braces. For a long time there was no real satisfactory treatment option for this.
Not every stain comes as a result of caries
Fluorosis or enamel developmental defects can cause discoloration, too. How do you provide treatment for this in a way that is efficient and comfortable for the patient?
Traditional methods are not suitable
In most cases, bleaching alone will not achieve an effective result. More intricate treatment methods such as veneer restorations are time-consuming and costly. Plus, they always involve sacrificing healthy tooth substance.
The Answer to
Onset of caries before treatment
Before treatment, caries, fluorosis or enamel developmental defects have caused discoloration.
Treatment with Icon
After being prepared with an etching gel, ‘Icon infiltrant’ liquid resin is applied, which penetrates into the porous tooth tissue where it cures under light.
The porous tissue is filled with the infiltrant. Because this reflects the light similar to how the natural tooth enamel would, the treated area matches the healthy tooth visually.
