Do you have white spots on the front of your teeth? White spot lesions can range from being slightly bothersome to a downright confidence killer for some patients. Since professional teeth whitening treatments usually can’t take care of the problem adequately, patients often turn to services like dental fillings and porcelain veneers, which can be invasive and expensive.
Serenity Dental Studio offers Icon treatments for white spot lesions, which are quick, painless and highly effective. If you’ve been embarrassed to smile or laugh around others due to the discoloration of your teeth, get in touch with our office. We’d love to help you achieve a consistently white smile that you love showing off!
Before treatment can begin, the teeth must be thoroughly cleaned and dried. A gentle air drying method may be used to prepare the affected tooth or teeth.
A special etching gel is applied to the surface of the affected tooth. This gel opens the pores of the enamel, allowing the resin to penetrate.
The Icon resin infiltrant, which has a low viscosity, is carefully applied onto the tooth surface. This resin is designed to penetrate the porous enamel and fill the lesions.
A special curing light is used to activate and harden the resin infiltrant. This process typically takes a few minutes and ensures the material adheres securely to the tooth.
After the resin has cured, Dr. Kengskool will gently polish the treated area, ensuring a smooth and natural finish that blends seamlessly with your tooth.
Since Icon treatments are minimally invasive, there is no down time; patients can return to their normal routines right away. For 24 hours post-treatment, you will want to ensure you avoid eating or drinking anything dark-colored or artificially colored, like sodas, grape juice, soy sauce, and colorful candy.
If you are not happy with the brightness of your teeth, we recommend scheduling a professional whitening treatment with our team prior to your Icon treatment. Our team can combine both treatments to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the color and overall appearance of your teeth.
The cost of your Icon treatment will depend on the complexity of your case and how many teeth are being treated. We can go over the estimated cost and financing options with you during your consultation.
