When we think of tooth discoloration, most of us picture brown tooth stains or a yellowish appearance.
Typically, this type of discoloration is caused by specific foods, drinks, tobacco, or age. It is often treated with professional teeth whitening in Vienna, VA.
However, there is another type of discoloration that causes white spots or light deposits on the teeth.
Icon, or resin infiltration, can painlessly infiltrate tooth enamel to remove these spots and leave you with a uniform tooth shade. There is never any drilling or need for anesthesia with this option.
The first step finds your dentist cleaning the tooth, taking care to avoid the gum tissue. After cleaning the tooth, we do gentle etching and then dry the tooth. The next step is the application of a gel that we soon rinse away. We can repeat these steps until the white spots disappear.
Icon technology can also get rid of early tooth decay noninvasively.
