Yellow or dull teeth can have a significant impact on your appearance and your self confidence. If you have yellow teeth, you may be more likely to hide your smile or feel uncomfortable smiling in public. The shade of your teeth can also affect your general oral health—studies show that people who like their smiles take better care of their teeth.
Almost everyone experiences some degree of tooth staining. The most common causes of yellowing teeth include heavily-pigmented drinks like coffee and wine, some prescription medications, and calculus buildup. Sometimes just removing the surface stains and improving your gum health with regular deep cleanings can make your teeth look a lot better.
Teeth Whitening Solutions
At our office, we offer ZOOM WHITENING in-office treatments and DAYWHITE take-home trays. Both of these methods work great to change the color of natural teeth. Whitening alone will not change the color of fillings, veneers or crowns so those might stand out more after you whiten.
Tooth Whitening and Dental Bonding
This is an appropriate choice for those who wish to have whiter teeth and address old fillings, fix minor crowding or change some tooth shapes. This can be a very cost-effective method to change your smile and works well in some cases. Fis, you would use tooth whitening procedures and then have dental bonding performed on some front teeth for a nice evenly white smile.
Tooth Whitening and Smile Design
If your case is like the one mentioned above, but the crowding is more severe, the teeth are worn or the bite is very strong, then you would need something stronger than dental bonding. These options would include doing a combination of tooth whitening, veneers, crowns, and perhaps other dental interventions like orthodontics or gum shaping as part of a full smile design. This choice will get you a beautiful and long lasting smile!
