Icon - Caries Infiltrant

Icon is used for the micro-invasive treatment of smooth surface and proximal caries lesions.  It can be used to treat lesions into the first third of dentin (D-1).  In one patient visit, and with no drilling, Icon can arrest the progression of early enamel lesions (caries) and white spot caries-like lesions.

White spots are a major issue for my post-orthodontic patients. Icon enables me to remove them in one simple, painless treatment. It’s a ‘wow’ moment for the patient, and a significant source of growth for my practice. ­— Dr. Timothy Hess, DDS

The challenge: Treat caries while preserving healthy tooth structure

Until now, dental professionals have had only two choices in the treatment of caries: 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.”

Icon represents an entirely new, revolutionary approach to treatment of incipient caries – a caries infiltrant. This breakthrough micro-invasive technology fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without drilling or anesthesia. 

Problem: Incipient Caries

Reasons Previous Treatments Fall Short:

  • Fluoride therapy – not always effective in the advanced stages
  • Filling – almost always sacrifices significant amounts of healthy tooth structure 

The revolutionary solution: Icon from DMG America

No more “wait and see” . . . treat incipient caries upon discovery! Icon provides an innovative, never-before-seen option for treatment of smooth surface and proximal carious lesions.

Instead of taking a “wait and see” approach, Icon can arrest the progress of early enamel lesions
up to the first third of dentin – in one simple procedure, without unnecessary loss of healthy tooth structure! 

Cosmetically remove white spot lesions in just one visit! Icon offers a revolutionary approach to the cosmetic treatment of carious white spot lesions. Lesions infiltrated by Icon take on the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel. This provides a highly esthetic alternative to micro-abrasion and restorative treatments of cariogenic white spots – all in one simple treatment, with no drilling! 

“I’m not sure who was smiling wider- the patient or me! Icon worked miracles on this odd, difficult case” — Dr. Peter Auster, DMD

Icon...your no drill solution!

  • Enables immediate treatment of lesions too advanced for fluoride therapy and not yet advanced enough for restoration; ends the “wait and see” approach
  • Arrests caries progress without unnecessary loss of healthy tooth structure
  • Cosmetic treatment of cariogenic white spots in one patient visit. Treated lesions lose whitish appearance and look like healthy enamel
  • No drilling or anesthesia required, for greater patient comfort
  • Patients with poor compliance can be treated earlier
  • Prolonged life expectancy of tooth
  • Not just minimally invasive dentistry. . . micro-invasive!
  • Highly esthetic alternative to micro abrasion and restorative treatments of cariogenic white spots


Fast, simple treatment in one visit . . . with no drilling!

The first treatment to bridge the gap between prevention and restoration. . .
