Your Patient Journey

First Treatment Visit

If you are a new patient to Olive Tree Dental, a new patient exam is carried out first to ensure you are dentally fit for the treatment. Decay, infections, or gum disease will need to be treated prior to cosmetic dental treatment, such as Icon Treatment.

A comprehensive assessment is then undertaken. Digital scans and X-rays are taken to obtain measurements of your teeth and assess how best to proceed. Photos can be taken using a camera or our intra-oral camera to ensure we capture those before and after images so we can monitor the progress of the treatment when complete and see actual results.

Olive Tree Dental stand out as a practice that really takes the time to listen to its patients; we feel it’s really important to get to the heart of what you’re looking for from treatment such as Icon Treatment.

We will closely study your smile and the elements that make it unique to you so that we can gain valuable insight that will allow us to successfully plan your smile design. A quick test in surgery determines how responsive your teeth will be to Icon, a recommendation will then be made about how to manage any lesions. Your treatment will never be rushed, as we will always make sure you are happy before proceeding to the next stage of the process.

Treatment (second appointment: 60-90 minutes)

This minimally invasive technique uses infiltration to blend white spots with the rest of the tooth. First, a special gel is applied to open the pores of the teeth. Then, a small amount of tooth-colored resin is applied.

Finally, a light is used to harden the resin, restoring the tooth’s natural color. The best news is, this is all achieved without a dental drill! Depending on how deep the White Spot is and how deep it penetrates, more than one round of Icon may be recommended. In which case another visit will be required.

Aftercare

We recommend refraining from chewing vigorously for a couple of hours immediately after the treatment, after which you chew normally. Avoid teeth-staining food and drink to ensure the resins remain a healthy shade and avoid biting on foreign objects (ice and pencils can often lead to chips!).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who carries out the Icon Treatment at Olive Tree Dental?

We are very fortunate to have two Dentists who perform this treatment, Dr. Ash Zyada & Dr. Anjali Vasudev. They both provide this highly skilled and non-invasive treatment carefully assess each tooth that requires treatment.

Can Anyone Have Icon Treatment?

Icon works without drilling and injections and has no age limit, so it can be administered safely on children too.

What are White spots and are they common?

White spots are common and can be caused by many factors including fluorosis, from high fluoride intake when the adult teeth are developing, and decalcification – the loss of minerals from the enamel. This is sometimes the result of fixed brace treatment if there has been a lapse in hygiene in the areas surrounding the brackets.

Many people mistake white spots or mottling for staining and think that uniform colour could be restored by whitening. However, the spots would remain lighter in colour than the rest of the tooth. To be rid of white spots forever takes Icon – a non-invasive treatment that targets the pores themselves.

How does Icon Treatment work exactly?

ICON works by using a gel to remove any superficial porosities on the tooth. A resin is then used to infiltrate the teeth sealing up the porosities and preventing future discolorations. Icon works without drilling and injections and has no age limit, so it can be administered safely on children too.

Icon smooth surface is used to treat white spots in vestibular areas. The principle is: Air and water entrapments in the tooth have a lower refractive index than intact tooth structure. This leads to unesthetic discolorations. Icon balances out this difference and the appearance blends in with the healthy enamel.

I have been going to olive tree dental now, for about a year and a half. The service is always so friendly and they really help you make the best decision when it comes to your teeth. I have had Invisalign treatment with Patricia, which was exceptional.The regular hygienist appointments and general check ups are also very good, and the parking around the dentist is excellent. I would highly recommend going here.read more

From the first step through the door it felt far removed from the standard clinical feel of any dentist I had been to previously. Not only are the offices beautifully decorated and the staff welcoming and friendly but the resulting impression from my first appointment was one of confidence instead of fear. Dr Zyada was very thorough in her checks and took the time to go through each and every tooth to explain exactly what needed to be done and why. It makes the return appointment a lot less daunting, thank you. Would definitely recommend Olive Tree Dental.read more

The team at Olive Tree Dental are great! My dentist was very thorough and took the time to patiently explain her findings and what would be required for future visits. Like most people I don't enjoy going to the dentist, but the team made it as comfortable as possible. The rooms were really clean too!read more

Olive Tree Dental are a fantastic dental practice. All of their staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I was given an appointment here with Smile White UK teeth whitening and the dentist was lovely! She was great at advising me in detail how to use the teeth whitening for my teeth, as they are particularly sensitive. I would definitely recommend them.read more

I went to Olive Tree Dental Clinic few times for teeth cleaning, emergency dental work and consultations. The clinic was very clean and inviting, stuff was very friendly and dentist was very gentle and reassuring. I appreciated the fact that she was communicating with me during the procedures so I wasn’t wondering what’s going on or when it will finish. I’ve been to quite a few dental clinics previously but never felt as valued and welcomed, and never got such high quality dental service. Highly recommend it to anyone and especially to those who feel nervous and anxious when visiting dentist. I feel lucky to live nearby!read more
