Options for Beautifying your Smile

Everyone Wants Their Smile to be Pleasing

For teeth that are chipped, stained or different colors, there are several options for you to consider.

Depending on the condition of your teeth, a professional consultation with your dentist will help you make the right choice.

Whitening Teeth with Bleaching

Professional bleaching has become very popular for a quick fix to discolored teeth.

However, if your teeth have bonding, colored fillings or crowns, you are not a candidate for bleaching. The color of these materials cannot be changed and would cause you to have different variations of color on your teeth.  Bleaching is best for the person with all natural teeth that can whiten evenly.

Considering Veneers

For teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, or misshaped, one of your best options may be veneers.  These are enamel pieces shaped like your actual teeth and applied to a roughened surface on your natural tooth for long lasting and durable new surface.

Veneers are difficult to stain, so they are a good choice for even coloring as well.

The Bonding Option

Bonding is a choice for people who have teeth that are in fairly good shape, naturally but need some help for chipped teeth, filling in spacing or as an option to silver fillings.

The difference between bonding and veneers is that bonding is more porous and may stain more easily.

These options are for people who still have healthy teeth and gums but need some cosmetic repair for a brighter and more beautiful smile.
