About ICON White Spot Treatment
After the removal of braces for teenagers, sometimes “white spots” can be seen on the front permanent teeth. To complete their smile, we offer ICON - a conservative treatment that is a great solution to removing those white spots. Pending case selection by the Doctor, the result will be a noticeably cosmetic improvement.
Who is a candidate for ICON white spot treatment?
An ideal candidate for ICON white spot treatment has small white lesions on the teeth from orthodontic treatment. They usually appear around the metal brackets or bands that move the teeth into the proper position. Because it is difficult to clean around these brackets, plaque buildup leads to noticeable lesions even after the brackets are removed. The pediatric dentists at WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry can provide a quick dental assessment to determine the cause of the white spots and whether your child is a candidate for ICON.

"Our newborn daughter had a lip and tongue tie that were causing immediate latching/nursing issues. Dr. Lee took her time evaluating her and listening to our concerns before educating us on the frenectomy procedure. We were so impressed by her kindness, fun and gentle demeanor, and interaction with our newborn that we transferred our oldest to their office immediately for dental checkups. We are continually impressed by the warmth and kindness as well as intention behind everyone on staff. Our kiddos love going!"- C.D. / Google / May 07, 2021
"Dr. Karrie Lee is the BEST pediatric dentist. She is the most kind, compassionate and personable dentist, and excellent at her job! I was so nervous to take my toddler to the dentist for the first time but after meeting Dr. Karrie, my son and I instantly felt at ease! She is so gentle and sweet! Recently my son had a dental emergency at 4:30pm on a weekday. I called WindHaven and Danny answered. He was extremely kind, calm and compassionate as I was freaking out. Dr. Karrie stayed late so she could see my son. She is one of a kind! My 3 year old literally said “Dr. Karrie is SO nice”. The staff is also absolutely wonderful! The office is brand new, and perfectly set up for children of all ages! I highly recommend WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry!"- N.B. / Google / Apr 21, 2021
ICON white spot treatment FAQs
What causes white spots on teeth?
Braces are the main cause of white spots that appear on the teeth. These spots can make your child feel self-conscious about their smile, especially since they already spent so much time and effort on braces. Dr. Lee can pinpoint the exact cause of these spots and reduce their appearance so they can feel confident about their pearly whites again.
What about over-the-counter teeth whitening products?
Although they can be a quick and convenient way to whiten teeth, home-use products won't provide the kind of results you want for white spots. In fact, they could actually make the problem worse. WindHaven Pediatric Dentistry has personalized solutions for white spots so your child can have that smile they have always wanted.
Can other problems cause white spots or tooth discoloration?
Yes! Excess fluoride use, certain medical conditions, and even some medications can cause tooth discoloration. Some causes of discoloration are more serious, so you should schedule an appointment with a pediatric dentist in Frisco if you suspect anything is wrong. Our dental team has experience treating a wide range of issues, and we can ensure your child's teeth stay healthy for life.
