White Spot Removal Q & A

What are white spots?

While everyone wants their smile to be brighter and whiter, white spots on your teeth are a whole different matter. White spots are actually a discoloration of your enamel that cosmetically detracts from your smile. They’re a different shade of white than the rest of your teeth and make your smile appear blotchy.

What causes white spots?

White spots develop for a number of reasons, including:

  • Fluorosis (overexposure to fluoride)
  • Too many acidic foods in your diet
  • Demineralization caused by plaque buildup

White spots caused by demineralization is common in patients with braces since the braces can make it difficult to properly clean your teeth.

What is white spot removal?

If you have white spots on your teeth, Tribeca Dental Studio can remove them and restore your smile with a simple procedure using a new state-of-the-art technology called the Icon® resin infiltration system. The Icon treatment is quick, easy, and requires no drilling, which used to be the only way to professionally remove white spots.

With the Icon treatment, your dentist covers your tooth with a gel-like material that penetrates your white spot, seals any early decay with filling material, and stabilizes your enamel to effectively get rid of the discoloration.

The Icon treatment leaves you with clean-looking teeth and a uniformly beautiful smile in less than an hour. Teeth that have been treated with Icon will even respond to whitening treatments just like your natural tooth enamel, so your smile will stay uniform if you ever decide to have a professional whitening treatment in the future.

Why should I use the Icon system for white spot removal?

The Icon resin infiltration system is a significant improvement over the traditional drill-and-fill treatment of white spots. Here are some of the particular advantages the Icon treatment has over drilling out your white spots:

  • Noninvasive procedure
  • Avoids having to remove healthy tooth material
  • Improves the life expectancy of your tooth
  • Makes your procedure more comfortable by eliminating the need for anesthetic
  • More cost-effective than veneers or fillings
