Discolored teeth are one of the most common complaints about their smile. When your teeth are discolored, it can make your smile look old and unhealthy. If tooth discoloration isn’t from cavities or infections, it’s probably from smoking or dark-colored foods and beverages. This is called extrinsic staining, which usually responds very well to teeth whitening. We utilize Opalescence take-home whitening.
Intrinsic staining may be related to enamel defects, tooth bruising, or other conditions. This discoloration is inside the tooth, and teeth whitening can’t remove it. Most often, porcelain veneers are the best approach for dealing with this discoloration.
Chipped, Cracked, or Worn Teeth
You use your teeth every day, and they can become worn down over time. In addition, accidents and injuries can cause your teeth to chip and crack. This damage to your teeth can destroy the harmonious symmetry of your smile and alter the attractive proportions of your teeth.
In some cases, we recommend dental bonding to repair your teeth. This is an inexpensive and quick way to repair tooth damage, but it doesn’t last a long time. Porcelain veneers are often the best choice for long-lasting cosmetic tooth repairs. In some cases, tooth damage might weaken the tooth enough that a dental crown is needed to support and protect the tooth.
