Do you ever find yourself shying away from photo ops and selfies, or even time with friends and family, because of the insecurity you feel about showing off your smile? Many people feel embarrassed when they notice that their teeth look deeply discolored or simply dingy. Stained teeth can cause the smile to look aged, and make it difficult to smile proudly. Sadly people choose to settle for smiles they’re not proud of, rather than taking simple action to help address the staining. Cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to quickly address most discoloration, helping to leave patients with visibly brighter and generally better-looking smiles. So if what you really want this Christmas, is a whiter smile, talk to your cosmetic dentist about how this could be achieved!
Whitening Can Erase Most Stains
Professional teeth whitening can help address most stains. It is also a fast and affordable option for helping to enhance the smile’s natural beauty. Whether you choose in-office treatment, or a take-home option, both can help to lighten teeth by several shades, safely and effectively, so that you can enjoy a whiter smile soon.
That said, there are times when dentists determine the cause of the staining or discoloration to be either intrinsic or permanent, in nature. Fortunately, even in these cases, they can still provide smile-enhancing treatments.
Veneers Can Hide Intrinsic Discoloration
Porcelain veneers, for example, are a great cosmetic dental option, and one which can address a host of concerns, including permanent staining but also inconsistently shaped or sized teeth, and even minor spaces between some or several of the teeth. Plus, thanks to dental porcelain’s durability, these improvements can often be enjoyed for several years, up to a decade with proper care.
