During the latest lockdown we will remain open and patients should keep their appointments as arranged. You should not attend if it’s not safe for you to do so, for example if you have symptoms of Covid-19, are waiting to receive test results, or have been asked to self-isolate. If you are unable to attend, please ring us in advance rather than not attend, so we can reallocate your appointment time.
All at Sunlight Orthodontics would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst we’ve not been able to see you. We can assure you that we are fully compliant with all Covid-19 safe practice guidelines.
White & Brown Enamel spots: New treatment available!
(Posted on 26/02/20)
Do you have discolouration patches on your teeth?
Unsightly white and brown spots on tooth enamel are common. These developmental defects are often present from when the teeth first come through.
Attempts to camouflage them with teeth whitening often makes the spots more noticeable, because whitening treats only the outer surface of the enamel.
In the past, extensive drilling of the teeth for traditional fillings or expensive veneers were the only options.
The ICON resin infiltration system represents a revolutionary approach. The enamel is lightly polished and after treating with a special gel, the tooth surface is coated with a highly fluid resin which penetrates deep in to the enamel imperfections and mimics the appearance of the surrounding tooth structure.
- Much less drilling and less expensive than traditional fillings and veneers
- No anaesthetic injections required
- Can be done sooner than veneers that have to wait until growth is complete
- Untreated spots can look worse after bleaching. Spots treated with ICON will whiten similarly to natural tooth enamel
- One quick, simple & painless visit
The picture shows a treatment completed at our practice. More before and after pictures can be seen here.
Typical costs are £60 per tooth for our orthodontic patients and £75 for others.
