Icon - Caries Infiltrant smooth surface
- Gentle method for counteracting cariogenic white spots – with an esthetic side effect
- No unnecessary loss of healthy hard tissue
- User-friendly and patient-friendly application process in only one sitting
One method – many possibilities
Icon smooth surface is used to treat white spots in vestibular areas.
The principle is: Air and water entrapments in the tooth have a lower refractive index than intact tooth structure.
This leads to unesthetic discolorations. Icon balances out this difference and the appearance blends in with the healthy enamel.
White Spots: Icon is effective on cariogenic white spots, especially immediately after removing braces. Even brown spots, which have developed over a longer period of time, can be treated esthetically, provided the surface is not cavitated.
Enamel changes: Cases of enamel changes like
able to be treated successfully,
particularly in mild to moderate
Changes caused by trauma: Further enamel defects, such as those caused by trauma, can be esthetically improved with Icon. The success of the procedure is heavily dependent on how deep these defects lie within the tooth structure. The closer they are to the surface, the better the esthetic
improvement. Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.
