White spots are very common. They can be caused by different factors including fluorosis – from high fluoride intake when the adult teeth are developing, or decalcification – the loss of minerals from the enamel. Sometimes, white spots are the result of fixed brace treatment if there has been a lapse in hygiene in the areas surrounding the brackets. In more rare cases, white spots can also be a result of molar incisal hypoplasia caused due to suffering trauma as a baby.
People mistake white spots or mottling for staining and think that uniform colour could be restored by whitening. However, the spots would remain lighter in colour than the rest of the tooth.
Icon treatment can restore the natural colour of your teeth by removing white spots, enamel defects and fluorosis with a non-invasive treatment that targets the pores inside the teeth.
It can achieve exceptional results in one appointment without the need for any drilling or anaesthetic. With proper care, your results can last for up to 5 years.
