ICON - White Sport Treatment Q & A

What is Icon white spot treatment?

Icon white spot treatment is a microinvasive dental procedure that reduces the number of white spot lesions on your teeth. Without using drills or other intimidating machinery, Dr. Schraner targets the weakened enamel on your teeth that is extra prone to cavities.

The treatment fills and reinforces the weak white spots on your enamel while preserving the natural color of your teeth and making them stronger.

Why might I need Icon white spot treatment?

White spots on your teeth are the result of the loss of calcium. These white spots aren’t just unpleasing to look at, they actually indicate the start of cavities forming on your teeth.

If you don’t treat them early with Icon white spot treatment, they can turn into cavities that require root canals, fillings, or other more extensive treatments to fix. Untreated cavities can lead to many more serious problems that can affect your overall health beyond that of your mouth.

White spots are caused by:

  • A lack of oral hygiene
  • Too much fluoride
  • Eating too much sugar or acidic foods
  • Poorly formed enamel

Many of these causes start during childhood when your teeth are especially vulnerable and prone to damage. Your teeth are also especially vulnerable while you have braces or other appliances that make it difficult to clean them properly.

Dr. Schraner can give you tips for how to prevent white spots on your teeth from forming or worsening.

What are the benefits of Icon white spot treatment?

Icon white spot treatment helps keep your mouth clean and healthy and, most importantly, prevents cavities. Other benefits of Icon white spot treatment when compared to other treatments to prevent cavities include:

  • No uncomfortable drilling
  • No complications from anesthesia
