ICON Resin Infiltration
What is ICON Resin Infiltration?
ICON resin infiltration is ideal for children who have white spots on their teeth. These white spots are known as white-spot lesions, or WSLs. They can be caused by poor oral hygiene as well as acid wear that demineralizes the teeth. ICON treatment helps to eliminate these white spots without the need for drills or anesthetic.
Why is ICON Resin Infiltration needed?
It is not uncommon for kids to have white spots on their teeth. These spots are often a sign of poor oral hygiene as well as a poor diet. Acid wear can typically cause these white spots to form. ICON is useful when it comes to eliminating these spots and improving the look of your child’s smile.

Who is a candidate for ICON Resin Infiltration?
Children who have white-spot lesions and who require professional treatment of these spots are good candidates for ICON. ICON is safe, effective and requires no anesthetic or drilling. It is a great choice for kids of all ages, and we can examine their teeth to determine if they would benefit from ICON. ICON treatment can be done in about an hour in our office and delivers permanent results.
What happens during the ICON Resin Infiltration process?
To begin, we will sit your child comfortably in one of our dental chairs. We then clean the tooth using a pumice scrub. A drying agent is applied to the teeth before the ICON resin is applied. The ICON treatment is left on the teeth for several minutes before being cured. The process is again repeated for one or two more times. ICON treatment requires absolutely no drilling or shots. It is done in just one appointment in our office and delivers dramatic results. Your child’s teeth look better and are healthier as a result. This treatment is ideal for children and teens of all ages who currently have white spots on their teeth.
