Resin Infiltration (ICON) and Microabrasion (Opalustre) White Spot Removal
White spots on teeth can be a major issue, especially if they are in an esthetic area. These white spots can be developmental, they can occur after orthodontic treatment, from decay, or as a result of teeth affected by fluorosis. In the past the only way to treat them was by drilling them out, and filling them with a composite material, or masking them with a porcelain crown or porcelain veneer.
Now, with the new resin infiltration system, we are able to remove these white spot lesions in one simple, painless treatment that doesn’t require and drilling! This treatment even works for patients with fluorosis (white and brown spots)and post orthodontic white spots.
Advantages and benefits of treatment of white spot lesions with these systems :
*Much less invasive and less expensive than the alternatives of fillings or veneers
*Can be done sooner than other cosmetic options like veneers that you have to wait until growth is complete
*Untreated hypo spots often look worse after bleaching. *Hypo spots treated with these systems will whiten similarly to the natural tooth enamel
