ICON Resin Infiltration

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive restorative treatment to treat white-spot lesions on your teeth that appear due to a decreased access of calcium and other ions to the tooth enamel.

ICON Resin Infiltration

Resin infiltration, a minimally invasive restorative procedure, effectively addresses white-spot lesions found on teeth. These lesions, also known as hypo spots or enamel bruising, manifest as white spots and typically arise due to enamel defects, trauma, or infection in primary teeth. They result from reduced calcium and ion access to deeper enamel layers, culminating in white spots on the tooth’s surface.

During ICON resin infiltration treatment, our dentists remove the obstructive outer enamel layer to allow better penetration of calcium and ions into the tooth, substituting it with an alternative substance. This procedure is swift and minimally invasive.

At all three of our locations, Broad Smiles Pediatric Dentistry provides ICON Resin Infiltration treatment.

  • How is ICON resin infiltration performed?

    ICON Resin Infiltration treatments are done in one dental visit and don’t require shots, numbing, or drilling. The entire process usually takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.

    The procedure is typically done with the following steps:

    • Dental cleaning to remove any substance from the teeth
    • Removal of the outer layer of enamel that is blocking calcium and other ions from entering the tooth
    • Using a finishing substance on any surfaces that do not indicate an improved appearance
    • Application of a drying agent to the areas of the tooth affected
    • Removal of any excess material
    • Material added again for curing and then excess removed
  • How long do ICON resin infiltration treatments last?

    ICON resin infiltration is considered to be a long-term treatment solution that can last anywhere from two to six years or longer. It does not typically require re-treatment like many teeth whitening product solutions.

  • What are the benefits of an ICON resin infiltration treatment?

    ICON resin infiltration treatments are generally much less invasive and expensive than tooth fillings or dental veneers. They can also be performed at a sooner stage in tooth growth where dental veneers need to wait until tooth growth is fully completed.

    Additionally, untreated hypo spots usually look worse with any sort of teeth whitening or teeth bleaching treatment, where hypo spots treated with ICON resin infiltration will take on the same color as the other teeth after teeth whitening procedures.
