Benefits of Icon Treatment

  • Non-invasive dental treatment. Unlike fillings, inlays and other treatment options, Icon is used for early cavities and is designed to require no drilling or needles.
  • Painless treatment. Because no drills, needles or invasive methods are used with Icon, there is no need for local anesthetic due to there being no discomfort or pain associated with the treatment.
  • Prevents further decay. Using icon on early cavities can prevent the cavity from progressing into a bigger problem.
  • Preserves tooth structure. Most restorative dental procedures require drilling and removal of tooth structure. However, Icon doesn’t require any structural modification for treatment.
