At Yummy Dental and Orthodontics for Kids, we're proud to offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry to patients throughout Glenview and the surrounding areas. But in addition to pediatric dentistry and orthodontics, we also offer a number of dental and orthodontic services for both adults and teenagers, including the exciting new ICON teeth whitening treatment. If you've been longing for a white smile – and especially if you've noticed annoying white spots on your teeth, particularly after treatment with braces – ICON teeth whitening may be exactly what you're looking for.

What Is ICON Tooth Whitening?

ICON resin infiltration is a new form of teeth whitening treatment designed to treat white spot lesions: opaque, discolored white spots that can appear on the teeth. Called white spot lesions (WSLs), these discolorations are caused by demineralization: a process in which acids produced by bacteria leach minerals like fluoride, calcium, and magnesium out of the tooth enamel, changing its structure and causing it to appear opaque. WSLs can affect anyone, but they're extremely common after treatment with braces, and while they're primarily a cosmetic problem, they may be followed by further tooth decay.

This is not only far less invasive than microabrasion or bleaching, but also acts as a long-term solution that preserves the health of the tooth. With just one office visit, ICON can dramatically reduce the appearance of white spot lesions, restoring your new smile to its healthy, normal whiteness.
