Tooth discoloration and staining can be the result of many things, ranging from certain medications to genetics and lifestyle habits. In addition to making your smile appear unhealthy, yellow or stained teeth often affect how you feel about your appearance and your sense of confidence. A bright, white smile has been proven to have a positive impact on both social and professional interactions for many people.
Dr. Datta offers alternative treatments if you are not considered a good candidate for teeth whitening, all of which can provide a more permanent result that will boost the color of your smile- and your confidence. Options can include:
- Tooth bonding: can be used to change the color of a tooth or several teeth to blend with your natural smile. A composite resin is carefully applied directly to the stained tooth and gently sculpted into place. It is used often in cosmetic dentistry as an economical solution to hide teeth imperfections.
- Porcelain veneers: custom dental veneers will cover the teeth and provide a beautiful, whiter smile that will last for many years to come. They are ultra thin shells that are applied to the front of prepared teeth. We offer CEREC ceramic veneers which can be placed in just one visit.
- Dental crowns: to address one or two discolored teeth, dental crowns can be placed to improve aesthetics. These are like tooth caps that will fit directly over your prepared tooth. We offer same day CEREC dental crowns that can be placed in just one office visit.
