What Is No Drilling Fillings?

No Drilling Fillings, also known as resin infiltration or ICON, is a non-invasive dental technique that repairs small cavities and tooth discolorations without the need for drilling or anesthesia. Unlike traditional dental fillings, No Drilling Fillings use a specialized resin to seal and bond the tooth from the inside out, resulting in a smooth and natural appearance.

Benefits of No Drilling Fillings

No Drilling Fillings offer several benefits over traditional dental fillings, including:

  • No pain or discomfort during the procedure
  • No drilling or anesthesia 
  • No risk of damaging healthy tooth structure
  • Quick and easy treatment, usually completed in one appointment
  • Natural-looking results that blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth
  • Long-lasting results that require minimal maintenance

Candidacy for No Drilling Fillings

No Drilling Fillings are suitable for patients with small cavities or tooth discolorations that haven’t yet reached the nerve or root of the tooth. Patients with larger cavities or tooth decay may require more extensive dental procedures, such as root canals or dental crowns.

No Drilling Filling Procedure 

The No Drilling Fillings process is a non-invasive, pain-free dental procedure that eliminates the need for drilling and anesthesia in dental fillings. 

The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the affected tooth. After cleaning, a specialized gel is applied to the tooth surface to prepare it for the resin. The gel opens up the pores of the tooth enamel, allowing the resin to penetrate the tooth structure and bond with it at a molecular level.

Once the gel has been applied, the resin is then carefully placed on the affected tooth surface. The resin is specially formulated to fill in the small cavities and discolorations on the tooth surface. It’s then cured with a special light, which hardens the resin and bonds it to the tooth surface.

Aftercare Tips for No Drill Fillings 

  • Avoid Eating or Drinking: After the procedure, patients should avoid eating or drinking for at least 30 minutes to allow the resin to fully cure. This will ensure that the filling sets properly and lasts longer.
  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene Habits: Patients should also maintain good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly, to ensure the longevity of the filling. This will help prevent the recurrence of cavities or other dental problems and keep teeth healthy and strong.
