Is one of your goals for 2024 to finally work on your pearly whites? Even with the best dental hygiene, teeth may look yellowed, uneven, or have minor blemishes. It is understandable that you want your smile to look its best, but it can be overwhelming to know what the best method is for you. At Allen Family Dentistry, we offer three forms of cosmetic dentistry that can enhance your appearance. In today’s blog, we are here to explain what these are and how they compare.
Professional Teeth-Whitening To Brighten Your Teeth
For many people, one of their main concerns is that their pearly whites are not as vibrant as they used to be. This can be caused by years of consuming coffee, tea, and other beverages or foods that have high levels of tannins. While the color of your teeth is not a direct indicator of your dental health, you may be more inclined to show off your grin when it is more vibrant.
We offer a professional whitening service in our office. Using a tray and special bleaching agent, we will use this system to lift several layers of stains from the surface of your enamel. This will leave you with a brighter, whiter smile.
Using Composite Resin To Blend In Blemishes
For patients with discoloration beneath the enamel, professional whitening may not offer the best results. This kind of intrinsic staining can be due to injuries, health problems, and genetics. Instead, we can bond the composite resin to the tooth that has blemishes. This will blend in with your smile while correcting imperfections you may have. This touchup can improve stains, gaps, and minor chips. For many patients, this is also a good medium choice between whitening and veneers.
Redesign Your Smile With Veneers
If you have several areas you would like to address, veneers may be the best investment for you. We will use tooth-colored porcelain shells to enhance your smile. These are cemented in place and are made to withstand pressure from chewing. Another great benefit of this option is that you can choose what you would like them to look like. You are able to determine the shade of your veneers to blend in with your natural teeth.
Before receiving any kind of cosmetic dental work, you must be in good health first. At your consultation, your dentist will examine your oral cavity to check for problems such as gum disease, cavities, and more. If any concerns are detected, a treatment plan will be created first to address these problems.
