Improve the appearance of white’s spots or a mottled appearance of teeth

Professional Teeth Whitening at Pearl Smile Dentists

ICON Tooth Whitening

ICON treatment is a non-invasive approach to improve the appearance of teeth – removing white’s spots or a mottled appearance. It removes marks, making them a uniform colour without covering the tooth’s natural surface. What’s more, it doesn’t use any drilling or injections.

This is done by first applying an ICON gel to the tooth to open up pores, to enable the penetration of the resin. Once this is rinsed off and dried, the ICON infiltrant resin is applied – this is light-cured and blocks acid, helping to preserve the tooth from additional decay. Finally, this is removed to give you instant and amazing results.
