Great Neck Family Dental is committed to providing our patients with the most innovative and effective dental treatments available. One such treatment is the ICON dental procedure, which can help to restore the natural appearance and function of your teeth without the need for invasive procedures. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the ICON procedure and why you should consider it for your dental needs.
The ICON dental procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that is used to treat small areas of tooth decay or discoloration. Unlike traditional dental fillings, which require drilling and removing the decayed portion of the tooth, ICON uses a special resin material to fill in the affected area and restore the tooth's natural appearance.
The ICON procedure involves several steps. First, the affected tooth is cleaned and dried, and a special gel is applied to the surface. This gel helps to open up the pores in the tooth's surface, allowing the resin material to penetrate deeper into the tooth.
Next, the resin material is applied to the affected area and allowed to soak into the tooth for several minutes. A special light is then used to harden the resin, creating a strong and durable bond with the tooth.
Finally, the tooth is polished to create a smooth and natural-looking surface. The entire procedure can be completed in a single visit to our office and typically takes less than an hour to complete.
There are several benefits to choosing the ICON procedure over traditional dental fillings or other restorative treatments. First and foremost, the procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is less discomfort and downtime for patients. Additionally, the resin material used in the procedure is designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, creating a beautiful and natural-looking result.
Perhaps most importantly, the ICON procedure can help to prevent the need for more invasive dental treatments in the future. By treating tooth decay or discoloration early, we can help to prevent the need for more extensive treatments like root canals or dental crowns.
