If your child or teenager has white spots on their teeth, our pediatric dentist may recommend ICON teeth whitening. This type of whitening treatment focuses on removing white spots, improving the aesthetics of your child’s teeth and smile so they can once again feel confident in their appearance.
White spots develop for a number of different reasons, including fluorosis (excessive fluoride consumption), enamel demineralization, trauma and orthodontic treatment. ICON white spot removal employs a minimally invasive approach to address these unsightly blemishes by reinforcing and filling demineralized enamel. This procedure is typically very comfortable and does not necessitate anesthesia.
ICON white spot removal offers many advantages, including:
- Painless and Minimally Invasive: White spot removal is renowned for its gentle approach, making it an ideal choice for young patients.
- Preservation of Tooth Structure: This conservative treatment safeguards the integrity of the natural tooth, preventing the need for extensive interventions.
- Cavity Treatment: White spot removal can effectively address cavities in their early stages, halting their progression.
- Halt in Decay: By targeting the root cause of white spots, this procedure prevents further decay and associated issues.
- No Drilling Required: White spot removal eliminates the need for drilling, making it a less intimidating option for children and teens.
- Extended Tooth Life Expectancy: This treatment can significantly prolong the lifespan of the affected tooth.
- Natural Aesthetics: The final result of white spot removal seamlessly blends with the original tooth, ensuring a natural and attractive appearance.
Your child’s white spot removal treatment can usually be completed in a single appointment with our experienced pediatric dentist and team.
