When you see stains on teeth, the solution to the issue is usually simple. They need to be whitened. Professional treatment can remove deep-set stains, but what do you do about white spots on teeth? You can’t treat this problem the same way, and they can attract the wrong kind of attention to your teeth.

Although veneers can cover discoloration, they involve a more invasive treatment, and very few dentists out there offer a more conservative option called Icon treatment. Read on to learn more about what these white spots are and how this procedure can resolve the issue.

Where Do the White Spots Come from?

Most often white discoloration occurs when there has been demineralization in the enamel. Other causes include dental fluorosis, poor oral hygiene, and even trauma. Regardless of the cause, if you have white spots on your teeth, you can do something about it.

How Does Icon Treatment Work?

This procedure requires about an hour to perform. The dentist utilizes micro-abrasion to create a rough surface on the tooth. Then, they apply a tooth-colored resin, which fills the demineralized tubules of the tooth. Finally, the dentist smooths the surface so that it reflects light just like natural enamel.

If your smile doesn’t look the way you want it to, you don’t have to settle. At Plush Dentistry, we provide Icon treatment to give you a more natural-looking, even whiteness to your teeth. Contact us to take care of your white spots today!
