No drilling fillings

Tooth decay begins when mineral is lost from the enamel as a result of ‘acid attack’, making the tooth more porous.
If the mineral loss is not stopped at an early stage the tooth surface becomes soft and eventually a cavity forms. Until now, dentists have had only two choices in the treatment of early tooth decay; use fluoride and other treatments to remineralize enamel in the very early stages – or “wait and see” until it’s time to “drill and fill.”
Resin infiltration treatment ,using Icon®, is an entirely new approach to treatment of early tooth decay using a resin infiltrant. This breakthrough micro-invasive technology fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without the need for drilling or needles
