Removing white spots from your teeth with ICON Resin Infiltration
Hey, I'm Dr. Amara at Boutique for Cosmetic Dentistry. Let's talk about how we can remove white spots on teeth. White spots can be an aesthetic concern for patients. These white spots can be caused after orthodontic treatment, during development, from fluorosis, or even from small cavities. With ICON resin infiltration, we are able to remove white spots in one, simple, painless visit with no numbing or drilling. This is a much less expensive and non-invasive treatment compared to fillings, veneers, or crowns.
A sequence of solutions are applied to your affected tooth or teeth, and we polish at the end. The entire process takes 30 minutes to one hour. Untreated white spots can look worse after bleaching, but white spots treated with resin infiltration will whiten similarly to the natural tooth enamel. Feel free to bleach after white spot removal. If you've ever had concerns regarding white spots and removing them, contact us for a consult.
