Quiz: Knowing The Right Treatment To Make Your Smile Whiter

If you keep staring at your smile and wishing it could be brighter, you may be ready to set up an appointment to learn how cosmetic dental care can help. Many people who come in looking to make their teeth whiter will benefit from a professional whitening treatment. A whitening treatment your dentist provides can lead to a remarkable change to how you look. While over the counter whiteners, and whitening toothpastes, can have a limited effect, a professional treatment can make your teeth brighter by many shades. In cases where a person’s teeth are affected by intrinsic discoloration, your dentist can recommend a different tactic. Placing porcelain veneers over discolored teeth can make them look brighter.


True Or False: Your tooth may darken after physical trauma. Because this is a case of intrinsic discoloration, a professional whitening treatment may not lead to the changes you want.

True Or False: A whitening toothpaste you pick up at the store can help remove stains from the surface of your teeth, but leave behind stains that reside below the surface.

True Or False: Porcelain veneers can give you a brighter smile, even when you are dealing with intrinsic discoloration.


True! Intrinsic discoloration refers to discoloration that results because of an internal tooth problem. To combat this, your dentist can recommend effective alternative strategies for correcting discoloration.

True! Professional whitening treatments are able to yield big results because they can remove stains below the surface of your enamel. Store bought products can fail to reach these stains.

True! When you have porcelain veneers placed, you can cover up problems with dull or discolored teeth. You can also use this procedure to hide issues with teeth that are damaged, poorly shaped, or even poorly spaced.
