Many Cosmetic Dental Options to Choose from
One of the most common problems people have with their teeth is discoloration or staining. This is often the result of smoking or consuming large amounts of certain dark beverages, such as coffee, tea and wine. Other causes of discoloration can be genetic or result from tetracycline poisoning or overexposure to fluoride in children.
Cosmetic dentistry offers an effective corrective treatment for discoloration with professional tooth whitening or bleaching, which uses hydrogen peroxide to get into the actual tooth material and bleach even deep stains. Over-the-counter whitening products simply are not as strong or effective as whitening administered by a professional.
Other common cosmetic dental procedures include veneers or Lumineers®, which are thin shells, typically made of porcelain, that are fitted over the teeth to cover a range of minor tooth problems and give a dramatic result. They are custom-fitted to an individual’s mouth and bonded directly onto the natural teeth. This is a popular alternative when tooth whitening won’t work.
The last few decades have brought about a revolution in cosmetic dental practices, giving patients more solutions than ever for all kinds of problems such as composite fillings, porcelain crowns, fixed bridges, inlays and onlays.
