Teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic procedure, and at The Practice, we offer an advanced solution known as ICON teeth whitening. This method addresses more than surface discoloration. A low-viscosity resin is applied through a micro-invasive process, penetrating the enamel and eliminating deep-seated stains. This procedure benefits intrinsic stains caused by aging, medication, or fluorosis.


What is ICON Teeth Whitening?

ICON Teeth Whitening offers a non-invasive solution specifically crafted to brighten teeth shades effectively. This treatment is ideal for individuals struggling with stubborn stains or discoloration that hasn’t improved with conventional methods, or for those seeking noticeable results in a shorter timeframe.

Unlike traditional teeth whitening techniques involving bleaching agents, ICON Teeth Whitening diminishes the appearance of stains without the need to remove enamel.


The Resin Infiltration Process

ICON employs a micro-invasive approach. A resin is applied to the teeth, seeping into the enamel. This process is gentle, preserving the integrity of the tooth structure. The resin is designed to blend with the natural tooth color, ensuring a natural-looking outcome.

Targeting Intrinsic Stains

Intrinsic stains result from factors within the tooth structure, making them resistant to conventional whitening methods. The resin infiltration technique of ICON addresses these deep-seated stains, providing a solution. Whether the stains are due to genetics, trauma, or developmental conditions, ICON offers a tailored approach to restore a brighter, more radiant smile.


The ICON Teeth Whitening Procedure

Before undergoing ICON Teeth Whitening, we recommend scheduling a consultation at The Practice. During this, we assess your oral health, discuss your desired outcome, and determine whether you are a suitable candidate. If ICON Teeth Whitening is deemed appropriate, we will schedule the appointment.

Treatment process

Our dentist will clean your teeth to ensure optimal results. Then, a protective resin will be applied to the gums and surrounding tissues to shield them from the whitening gel. 

Next, the ICON gel will be applied and allowed to penetrate the enamel. The gel is then rinsed off, revealing a whiter smile.

Duration and number of sessions

The duration depends on the severity of the stains and the number of teeth being treated. 

A single session takes 30 to 60 minutes. While some patients achieve their desired results in one visit, others require multiple sessions for optimal whitening. 

Our team at The Practice will provide recommendations based on your needs.


What are the benefits of ICON Teeth Whitening?

ICON Teeth Whitening offers two advantages over traditional methods:

Minimal Intervention, Maximum Impact

The micro-invasive nature of the resin infiltration process ensures that the tooth structure is preserved. Unlike aggressive techniques that may lead to tooth sensitivity or enamel damage, ICON focuses on enhancing aesthetics without compromising dental health. The procedure is often completed in a single visit, making it convenient for those seeking immediate improvements in their smile.

Long-lasting Results

At The Practice, we understand the importance of delivering results that stand the test of time. ICON teeth whitening is renowned for its long-lasting effects. By addressing the cause of stains within the enamel, the procedure ensures that the results are fast and durable. Patients enjoy a radiant smile without frequent touch-ups or maintenance.
