A bright smile is attractive and presents your unique beauty in its best possible light. However, discoloration and other small dental flaws can cause you to lack confidence when expressing yourself.
Many Treatment Options to Brighten Your Smile
There are several ways you can brighten your smile to enhance your appearance. Understanding treatment options will help you choose the best treatment to meet your personal needs.
There are professional teeth-whitening treatments dentists can provide, which can brighten teeth by several shades very quickly. Some of these treatments are done in the office and are usually completed in under an hour. Other whitening systems use customized trays that are taken home, so you can brighten teeth at your own pace.
Whitening treatments can conveniently be added to your routine hygiene visit, and they make an excellent preliminary treatment to other cosmetic dental procedures. Porcelain restorations like crowns and bridges cannot be lightened later, so when teeth are whitened first, the upcoming restoration can be shade-matched to your new, brighter smile.
Enamel Colored Composite Resin for Bonding
Composite tooth resin can be seamlessly bonded onto discolored, chipped, or cracked teeth. It is shade-matched to the color of surrounding tooth enamel, providing a consistent color on dental surfaces. This material can also replace silver colored fillings to brighten your smile.
Porcelain Veneers Crowns
Porcelain veneers are thin shells affixed onto the fronts of the most visible teeth in the upper and lower jaw. The veneers are matched to surrounding dentition, and the porcelain shines with the luminosity of natural enamel. This treatment dramatically brightens teeth and gives teeth a more uniform and linear appearance, while also concealing small chips and cracks
Porcelain crowns are typically used to restore damaged teeth but can also be an effective way to brighten teeth with a treatment that, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime. Working with the dentist, you can choose the perfect shade for your crowns, so they blend in with your other natural, or pre-whitened teeth. When cared for properly, porcelain crowns can last a lifetime.
