Icon is a revolutionary new form of treatment for early cavities—also known as caries. Icon is a special resin material that can halt the progression of cavity growth before needles or drills become necessary in removing decay. In addition, Icon can be used in the elimination of abnormal white spots on teeth that can arise due to excess fluoride ingestion, nutritional deficiencies, or demineralization.
