Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a take-home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening so they will match the newly whitened teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up is maybe needed every several years and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea or wine.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be an alternative to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discolored or stained teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
Invisallign is a form of orthodontic treatment (aligning of teeth) that allows for a more aesthetic process. This is done by using multiple stages of clear trays that help move your teeth to achieve better teeth alignment. Studies have shown that haveing properly aligned teeth and corrected bites help in maintaining better oral hygiene and preventing potential dental problems.
