Teeth were cleaned with a suspension of pumice and water and thoroughly washed with water. Area was isolated with rubber dam. A 15 % HCl gel (Icon-Etch, DMG) was applied to the white spot areas of tooth #9 (FDI 2.1). The respective manufacturer provides an application tip in the respective kit; however, we prefer a small round brush to ensure application accuracy

The 15 % HCl gel was extended to the other white spot areas and left undisturbed for 2 min

The gel was thoroughly rinsed with water for 30 s with the high-speed suction tip positioned as close as possible to the area being washed. The white spots on tooth #9 (FDI 2.1) were etched a second time with 15 % HCl gel for 2 min, as recommended by the manufacturer
