Aim: Micro-invasive treatment of white-spot lesions through resin infiltration technique was performed.
Materials and method: Icon smooth surface (DMG, Hamburg, Germany) was applied to 21 non-cavitated carious lesions, located on the buccal surfaces of teeth. Enamel conditioning with 15% hydrochloric acid gel was first performed, to expose lesion microporosities, followed by their infiltration with low-viscosity methacrylate resin.
Results: A smooth and glossy tooth surface was achieved, similar to healthy enamel. The aesthetic aspect was re-established and lesion progression was inhibited. The clinical procedure was simple and painless, being easily accepted by patients.
Conclusions: Icon technique proved to be a successful treatment of the non-cavitated white-spot lesions on smooth surfaces.
