When is ICON resin infiltration treatment recommended?
ICON resin infiltration treatment is recommended for individuals who have white spots or enamel defects on their teeth. It can be used to address a variety of conditions, including fluorosis, early-stage caries (cavities), and other forms of enamel hypoplasia. However, the suitability of the treatment may vary depending on the specific case, and it’s best to consult with a dentist to determine if ICON resin infiltration is the right option for you.
How does it work?
- Preparation: You clinician will begin by thoroughly cleaning and drying the surface of the affected tooth or teeth.
- Etching: A mild etching solution is applied to the enamel surface. This creates micro-pores in the enamel, allowing the resin to penetrate effectively.
- Resin Application: A special low-viscosity resin is applied to the tooth’s surface. This resin has the unique property of seeping into the porous enamel, blending with the natural tooth structure, and filling the defects.
- Infiltration and Curing: The resin infiltrates the enamel, effectively masking the white spots or defects. A curing light is then used to harden and solidify the resin, bonding it to the tooth structure.
- Polishing: After the resin is cured, the dentist will polish the treated tooth, resulting in a smooth, natural-looking finish that blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.
Do I need a dental exam first?
To ensure successful ICON treatment, it’s paramount that your teeth and gums are in ideal condition. We must perform a thorough assessment to guarantee our patients’ clinical readiness prior to beginning the treatment process.
Why choose ICON white spot treatment?
The resin infiltration process improves the optical properties of the tooth, reducing the appearance of white spots and restoring a more uniform, aesthetically pleasing appearance. It also strengthens the affected enamel, offering some degree of protection against further demineralization.
It is a more minimally invasive alternative to veneers or composite bonding that are often recommended for enamel defects.

Is the treatment painful?
No, ICON resin infiltration treatment is generally painless. The procedure is minimally invasive, and the dentist will take steps to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. Local anaesthetic is usually not required, as the procedure involves minimal or no drilling.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment time can vary depending on the extent of the enamel defects being treated and the number of teeth involved. In most cases, the treatment can be completed in a single visit, lasting approximately 30 minutes to an hour per tooth. However, it’s important to note that each patient’s situation is unique, and the dentist will provide a more accurate estimate during the initial consultation.
How long does it last?
The results of ICON resin infiltration treatment can be long-lasting, but they are not considered permanent. The resin infiltrates the enamel and improves its appearance and strength, providing a more uniform and natural-looking tooth surface. However, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of the results

Yes, ICON resin infiltration treatment can be suitable for patients of all ages, including children. It is a minimally invasive and conservative treatment option that can effectively address enamel defects and white spots on their teeth.
