One Quick Treatment That Changes Your Smile for Good
When you smile, do you notice different colors or shades of white on your front teeth? Maybe you have a few bolder white spots that stand out from the rest of your tooth?
The appearance of white spots on your teeth does not indicate that certain areas of your smile are naturally brighter. White spots are caused by several factors such as early-stage tooth decay (cavities) or too much fluoride during tooth development. Although these two factors are unrelated, they both change the normal makeup of your tooth enamel and, as a result, how it appears on the outside.
White spots on teeth, unfortunately, cannot always be eliminated with tooth whitening treatments. In fact, dental bleaching can make these abnormalities even more noticeable than they were before. If you’ve recently noticed them, it’s time to make an appointment with Dr. Yazdan.
Dr. Yazden, our Newport Beach dentist, has a simple and effective solution: ICON white spot removal treatment.
What is ICON White Spot Removal?
A respected dental materials brand called DMG developed the innovative ICON system. It employs a “resin infiltration” procedure to help fill in the weak, porous, or decalcified places inside of teeth that cause white spots.
ICON, in a nutshell, targets the “micropores” or tubules just beneath the surface of your enamel. Because the ICON Material is clear by nature, you will get a natural-looking color even if you choose to whiten your smile afterward.
When ICON is infused into the weaker areas of enamel, it not only removes the white discoloration but also strengthens the tooth in that area, making it more impervious to sensitivity and dental decay.
Resin is comparable to the white composite materials used to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling a cavity, a clear, liquid version of the material is infused into smooth surfaces via the open tubules and pores within your enamel.
A Minimally Invasive Option for Isolated White Spots
You might be surprised to learn that there is no numbing, drilling, or discomfort involved in ICON white spot treatment in Newport Beach. Before the resin is infiltrated, the tooth is simply cleaned, prepped, and isolated from the others.
Fast and Easy
It only takes a few minutes per region for an ICON DMG white spot treatment. The infiltration procedure takes about three minutes. Dr. Yazdan uses a small UV light to cure the material into place after it has been completely absorbed by your tooth enamel. As a result, the composite infiltration material becomes a permanent part of the tooth anatomy in that area. Plus, it provides permanent results.
Compliments Other Cosmetic Dental Treatments
When you have a tooth-colored filling or crown placed, the material will remain the same color for the duration of your restoration. As a result, when you whiten, those other types of restorative materials must be replaced.
With an ICON white spot treatment, this is not the case. Despite the fact that the resin flows into the dentinal tubules and is permanently cured, it takes on the color of the healthy enamel around it. If you ever had another drill-free cosmetic dentistry treatment, such as teeth whitening, your tooth would brighten along with its neighbors.
“Should I whiten or not?” It’s a question you can think about at any time in the future! There’s no need to whiten your teeth before applying for the ICON DMG because you can do it later if you want. Your smile will already look better after removing the signs of white spots in tooth enamel
Why Treat White Spots With ICON?
There are several reasons why treating white spots on teeth may be necessary. Aesthetically, visible demineralized places at the front of your smile can detract from your overall appearance. Even if your teeth are cavity-free and your gums are healthy, a few noticeable white spots can make your smile appear less than appealing. You can dramatically improve your smile without any other types of cosmetic dentistry therapies by treating surface lesions with ICON.
