You may have noticed your teeth have been getting yellow for some time now. Perhaps you drink a lot of coffee, tea and wine, or maybe you smoke. Maybe it’s happening just as you age. When you think about what we eat and drink on a daily basis, it’s no wonder our teeth enamel takes a toll, resulting in discoloration. You may even have tried those over-the-counter teeth whitening remedies but they never seem to work. If you have dull or stained teeth, there’s no need to hide your smile anymore. Teeth whitening done by a professional within a clinical setting is done right the first time, using professional-grade whitener treatments that can give you a sparkling smile every time.
Dental bonding can be achieved in just one visit and it’s a relatively quick one. Bonding is the solution to chipped or broken teeth, utilizing a tooth-colored composite resin with no numbing agent required. This is a semi-permanent filling for your teeth that not only repairs those chips and breaks, but also covers exposed roots and cavities. Once the bonding is complete, the result is a flawless tooth that looks just like the original. The material is so strong, it lasts for many years.
Veneers are thin shells crafted from plastic or porcelain that fit over your existing tooth. Your dentist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, and then use that impression to make a customized set of veneers just for you. Veneers can transform your entire smile if you have broken or chipped teeth, gaps between your teeth, or permanently discolored teeth. Veneers typically have a longer life span than dental bonding and don’t cost as much as dental crowns. You’ll likely have to visit the dentist twice to get this procedure done, as porcelain veneers need to be crafted in a dental lab.
