What Are They?

Man inspects his teeth in mirrorWhite spots on teeth are a common dental issue that can be caused by various factors. These spots are usually the result of demineralisation of the enamel, which can occur due to poor oral hygiene, acidic foods and drinks, or orthodontic treatment.

They can occur due to various reasons, such as:
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Acidic foods and drinks
  • Orthodontic treatment
  • Dry mouth
  • Fluorosis
  • Enamel hypoplasia
  • Early tooth decay

Effective Treatment for White Spots

One of the most effective ways to treat white spots on teeth is through a technique called Icon Infiltration. This technique involves using a resin-based composite material that is infiltrated into the tooth to restore the lost minerals and improve the tooth’s appearance.

The procedure involves the following steps:

Step 1: Preparation

The first step is to prep the teeth by cleaning and isolating the gum tissue. We will then apply a rubber dam to protect the teeth from any contamination.

Step 2: Infiltration

Once the tooth is prepped, we’ll apply the resin-based composite material to the white spot area. The material is left to infiltrate the tooth for a few minutes, allowing it to absorb the lost minerals.

Step 3: Curing

After infiltration, the dentist will use a curing light to harden the material and bond it to the tooth. This process takes a few minutes to complete.In some cases, where the white spot lesion is deeper than it appears, the dentist may have to remove a little bit of enamel and do a proper filling.


After the treatment, patients are advised to avoid consuming any food or drinks for a few hours. They should also maintain good oral hygiene practices, including brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and visiting the dentist for regular checkups.

If you have white spots on your teeth, Icon Infiltration technique can help restore the lost minerals and improve your smile. It’s a safe and effective procedure that requires minimal preparation and downtime. Contact us today to learn more about this procedure and how it can benefit you.
