Dental staining is very common among adult dental patients; although healthy teeth are sturdy and resilient, they are not impervious to damage. If you have noticed that your teeth are starting to look dark, discolored, or stained, our Cheney cosmetic dentists have some treatment solutions that can help you refresh your smile! Keep reading to get more information.

Professional dental whitening is designed to lighten your natural enamel. Our dental team applies a topical whitening formulation to your enamel, and this potent gel minimizes existing discoloration in order to restore your enamel to its previous level of whiteness. Patients love dental whitening because it is non-invasive, and can deliver results in just one dental appointment. This is also a cost-effective aesthetic solution.

While professional dental whitening treatment is designed to change the color of your real enamel, there are other aesthetic treatments that whiten your smile by covering your natural teeth.

· Dental bonding using composite resin to cover your existing enamel. Once the composite resin is in place, our dentist cures it so that it hardens and bonds to your enamel. Composite resin is always custom-shaded to suit the patient’s needs, so that you can achieve a smile that looks exactly as white and bright as you want.

· Likewise, porcelain veneers are designed to resurface real teeth with natural-looking porcelain restorations. These restorations are so thin that they look and feel natural once in place. Again, every veneer is customized in shape, size, and shade so that your smile looks and feels great. Veneers are used to deliver a wide variety of aesthetic goals—not just whitening—so many people choose veneers to achieve smile transformations and makeovers.

Given all of the things that we can accomplish using modern dental technology, there is absolutely no reason for you to continue living with a smile that you don’t love. As always, our Cheney dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have! We look forward to speaking with you.
