The microinvasive, effective and esthetic solution for enamel white spots

Until now, dental professionals have had only two choices to treat early caries: use fluoride and other treatments to remineralize enamel in the very early stages – or “wait and see” until it’s time to “drill and fill.”

Icon represents a revolutionary new approach to treat incipient caries: a caries infiltrant. This breakthrough micro-invasive technology fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without drilling or anesthesia, up to the first third of dentin (D1).

The science behind resin infiltration

Air and water entrapments in the tooth have a lower refractive index than intact tooth structure, which leads to un-aesthetic discolorations. Icon balances out this difference and the appearance blends in with the healthy enamel, and is helpful for treating a variety of white spot lesion types.

Treatment steps

Tips from the practice

1. Re-etching “older” inactive white spots

  • You can etch multiple times if there is a very thick pseudo-intact surface layer.
  • If the white discoloration disappears within a few seconds when ethanol (Icon-Dry) is applied, then it is sufficiently etched.
  • If the opaque discoloration remains, then the etching process should be repeated.
  • Up to three etching steps for two minutes per lesion are possible.

2. Before/after documentation

  • Optimize your patient communication process by taking before and after pictures.
  • These photos give your patients definitive proof about the success of the treatment.

3. Fluorosis and other white spots

  • Even non-cariogenic enamel changes can be treated with Icon.
  • Experiences in practice show: Patients with fluorosis can be successfully treated, where it has proved useful to repeat the etching steps multiple times. Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.
  • Enamel changes caused by trauma have been successfully treated.  Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.
