After taking off your braces, did you notice little white spots on the surface of your teeth? Commonly caused by orthodontic treatment, demineralization, poor oral hygiene, and fluoride overexposure, white spots and tooth discoloration can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. At Clover Hills Dentistry in Mission, TX, Dr. Alexander Ochoa Falla and Dr. Jo-Ann Collantes offer ICON® Resin Infiltration treatment to gently correct unsightly white spots, early tooth decay, and other minor cosmetic dentistry problems.

Are you considering ICON white spot treatment? If so, read over the top five benefits before scheduling an initial consultation:

  1. No Drilling!

Many people, no matter what age, generally dislike the feeling of sitting on a stool in a dentist’s office and having their teeth drilled. It can be an unpleasant experience, no doubt about it. Fortunately, no drilling is required for many modern dental treatments, including ICON white spot treatment! With ICON, decaying parts of tooth enamel can be replaced with a proprietary substance that restores the original strong structure and shape of your teeth while maintaining their natural look. No drilling means that patients can receive safe and secure treatment for their dental discoloration without discomfort or anxiety due to loud noises and vibrations from the dreaded dental drill.

  1. No Need for Anesthesia!

ICON white spot treatment is the perfect solution if you’re looking for a painless way to improve your smile. ICON is a micro-invasive treatment that can target tooth discoloration and decalcifies the enamel with a safe and gentle method. ICON has been developed and tested by experts, providing effective yet comfortable treatment. Thanks to ICON, you can enjoy a whiter, brighter smile without discomfort.

  1. Results Can Last for Years

Another top benefit of ICON white spot treatment is that it provides long-lasting results. ICON Resin Infiltration treatment can help to improve your oral health for years, making it an excellent option for those looking for long-term results. In 2018, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a case report in which researchers concluded that ICON results were stable over four years.

  1. Performed in a Single Dental Visit

Do you want a sharper-looking smile in less than an hour? If so, consider ICON white spot treatment. Since the process is straightforward and the treatment is applied directly to the affected tooth, there’s no need for a dental laboratory, and our dentists and patients can save on chair time.

  1. Gentle Yet Effective Treatment

Most dentists agree that preserving as much healthy dental tissue as possible is better. ICON white spot treatment is a great solution for conservatively treating their teeth. The ICON system uses micro-abrasion and light bleaching to target and remove white spots without causing damage to teeth surfaces. Also, ICON helps break down bacteria and plaque, restoring the natural tooth color.
