Comfortable Treatment of Dental White Spots in Fairfield, CA
Patients who wear fixed orthodontic appliances, such as metal braces, sometimes find that they have noticeable white spots or lesions on their teeth when the appliance is removed. These white spots are the result of poor oral hygiene while wearing braces or another appliance. Fortunately, we have a treatment available at GV Smiles Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics to help – Icon resin infiltration.
Icon resin treatment is very similar to cosmetic dental bonding, a procedure you may have heard of. Our team applies a special composite resin to the demineralized enamel, restoring the appearance of the teeth. Icon resin infiltration is very minimally-invasive, requiring no drilling, injections, or anesthesia. The entire process typically takes less than an hour, and results are superior to teeth whitening. In fact, the results of Icon resin infiltration can last several years.
This treatment is suitable for post-orthodontic treatment white lesions as well as congenital white spots. Please contact us at (707) 864-1055 to find out if Icon resin infiltration is appropriate in your situation.
