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

Indications:
One method – many possibilities

Vestibular treatment

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 fluorosis or Molar-Incisor- Hypomineralization (MIH) were able to be treated successfully, particularly in mild to moderate instances. Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.

Tips from the practice

1. Re-etching »older« inactive white spots

  • You can etch multiple times if there is a very thick pseudo-intact surface layer.
  • If the white discoloration disappears within a few seconds when ethanol (Icon-Dry) is applied, then it is sufficiently etched.
  • If the opaque discoloration remains, then the etching process should be repeated.
  • Up to three etching steps for two minutes per lesion are possible.

2. Before/after documentation

  • Optimize your patient communication process by taking before and after pictures.
  • These photos give your patients definitive proof about the success of the treatment.

3. Fluorosis and other white spots

  • Even non-cariogenic enamel changes can be treated with Icon.
  • Experiences in practice show: Patients with fluorosis can be successfully treated, where it has proved useful to repeat the etching steps multiple times. Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.
  • Enamel changes caused by trauma have been successfully treated.  Awaiting confirmation from clinical studies.
