White marks on your teeth is very common. Lots of people think that the white areas are stains and that whitening will disguise them but unfortunately, no matter how white the teeth get, the white spots will always be whiter and visible. Most people assume that you can’t treat these and just have to learn to live with them.
But, that’s not the case. ICON treatment can restore the natural colour of white patches on your teeth. Carried out in one pain free appointment, you will see results straight away.
There are many different causes of white areas on your teeth. For example, your teeth may have been exposed to too much fluoride whilst developing, leading to white or brown speckling on your teeth.
Minerals lost from the tooths surface, often due to poor oral hygiene or a high sugar diet can lead to decalcification. Trauma, illness or developmental conditions can also lead to white spots on your teeth.
Following your New Patient Consultation, ICON treatment is usually carried out in just one appointment. A solution is applied to the white spots which will open the pores of the tooth. A tooth coloured resin will then be applied to your tooth, restoring your natural tooth colour.
ICON treatment usually lasts between 2 and 5 years, twice daily brushing and a low sugar diet will help to maintain the treatment for as long as possible.
