3 Procedures That Whiten Teeth

Posted by DR. CHRISTINE Y. LEE on Sep 21 2021, 04:58 AM

Sharing a bright, white smile with the world can make you feel much better. Maintaining good oral hygiene and taking care of your teeth can make you add perfection to your overall look. Having a perfect smile can also make you stand out from the crowd and give you a great first impression. There are numerous procedures available in the field of dentistry to help you achieve that perfect smile you are seeking for.

Teeth Whitening

You can whiten your teeth at home with gentle, over-the-counter whitening products, such as whitening strips and whitening toothpaste. Your dentist can also offer stronger and faster whitening treatments in the office.

It’s best to have your dentist whiten your teeth. Because they have access to stronger bleaching agents, your dentist can whiten your teeth more dramatically than you can with over-the-counter products, and they can also ensure you are using the correct strength whitening product for your needs.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth. They look like natural teeth. They resemble natural enamel in their thickness and durability. They cover stains, cracks, chips, and other flaws. They lengthen teeth that are too short or cover teeth that are misshapen.

Veneers require removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This makes veneers permanent and durable. They require the same maintenance as your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily, and visit the dental office twice a year for dental cleanings and examinations.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns completely cover teeth, making them look whiter. They also help strengthen teeth, making them less likely to break. Crowns protect teeth that are weak or cracked, making them a good option for patients whose teeth aren’t strong enough for fillings.

After a tooth is prepared for a crown, an impression of the tooth is made. The impression is sent to a dental lab where the permanent crown is made. In the meantime, a temporary crown is placed over the tooth. Once the permanent crown is ready, the temporary crown is removed, and the permanent crown is cemented in place.

Dental crowns are a good option for patients who want to improve the look of their teeth and enhance their strength.
