Tooth Whitening & Veneers
As we age, it’s normal for teeth to become yellow or stained. This is due to the things we eat and the lifestyle choices we make. Thankfully, living with a dull smile isn’t necessary. In a situation where your teeth are in good health and condition, a simple teeth whitening solution may be the perfect fix.
The effects of tooth whitening can last several years, but this depends on what you eat and drink, whether or not you smoke, and how diligent you are regarding maintaining your teeth’s whiteness.
It’s important to note, that before teeth can be whitened, cavities must be treated. The whitening solution can penetrate tooth decay and reach the inner areas of the tooth. Whitening will not work on exposed tooth roots because there is no enamel on the roots. Crowns and porcelain veneers cannot be whitened. Tooth whitening works best on teeth that have been stained by food, drinks or age.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic dentistry solution for a wide range of aesthetic problems you may have with your teeth. Whether you are unsatisfied with the color of your teeth, have chips, cracks, crookedness, or gaps in your teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent option.
If tooth imperfections are keeping you from smiling with confidence, consider porcelain veneers at our office. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material which are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. When placed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Albert Baawo, porcelain veneers look just like beautiful, natural, bright teeth.
