Do you have white spots on your teeth? White spots can occur on teeth from poor hygiene, fluorosis, eating too many acidic foods or from other conditions. Regardless of the reason why you have white spots, it can be frustrating to deal with. If you, like many others, have tried whitening treatments and other cosmetic dental treatments to improve the look of your teeth but have had no success, our dentist may be able to help.
Dr. Terri Silverman proudly offers ICON white spot removal in East Northport, New York, to help patients improve the look of their teeth. This minimally invasive restorative treatment can reduce white spots using resin infiltration. This resin penetrates the demineralized enamel and fades the appearance of white spots. The resin we use can also match your natural tooth color, giving you a natural look.
During your appointment, your teeth will be cleaned and dried, and the resin will be applied. The material will soak on the teeth for several minutes before being removed. We will add more resin, which will soak on the tooth before being cured and polished.
The whole treatment takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour. It is an affordable, minimally invasive solution that is more natural than dental veneers.
This treatment isn’t a permanent solution for white spots. Much like tooth whitening treatments, this white spot removal may require follow-up appointments to keep your smile looking its best.
If you have any questions or wish to improve your smile’s appearance, schedule an appointment with our dentist by calling 631-368-0062.
