Has it been months or even years since you have felt confident having you picture taken, all because of staining of your smile? Over time, most people will begin to experience some degree of discoloration on their teeth, either due to staining foods and drinks they have consumed, their use of tobacco products, or other lifestyle factors that can affect one’s oral health, and the smile’s beauty. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to reverse most staining, helping to reveal a lighter and often more youthful-looking smile. So, if you are ready to smile proudly again, and for the kind of pearly whites you have been missing, why not find out how a cosmetic dentist could help give you a brighter, whiter smile?
Professional Whitening Treatment Offers Dramatic Results
While there are alternatives to professional teeth whitening, such as the many products that promise to lighten teeth, which are available over-the-counter at your pharmacy and grocery store, few of these products are designed to lighten teeth by more than a few shades. Some products may also require extended periods of time in order to create the results desired.
Professional teeth whitening, however, is designed to help lighten teeth by multiple shades quickly. For instance, many patients are able to lighten teeth by eight or more shades, by choosing professional teeth whitening through a cosmetic dentist!
Bonding or Veneers Can Help Address Permanent Staining
If the dentist determines that your staining is either permanent, or intrinsic, there is still hope for a whiter smile. In fact, your dentist could create a whiter smile quickly through the use of cosmetic bonding. Or, if you are looking for even longer-lasting results, porcelain veneers could be a great solution!
