No doubt, teeth whitening offers exceptional results for patients seeking whiter smiles. However, this cosmetic treatment is not always the best avenue toward improvement. Under certain circumstances, patients will find that traditional whitening is either insufficient or simply not helpful at all. No need to worry, however! We offer comprehensive cosmetic care to ensure the white smile you want is just around the bend. Learn more and schedule a visit to get started on your future grin.
#1: You Have Additional Cosmetic Concerns
If you really want a whiter smile, you may qualify for teeth whitening. However, if you want a whiter smile and longer or shorter teeth, gaps filled between teeth, improved texture, a more uniform and symmetrical smile, covered cracks, and more, then you may find that veneers will work better to address all of your goals with greater convenience.
#2: Your Teeth Are Deeply Stained
When you are dealing with deep stains, whether due to issues like antibiotic side effects, internal tooth trauma, or otherwise, traditional in-office and at-home teeth whitening will usually not be able to get the job done. Instead, we will suggest an option for camouflaging the discoloration. This might include dental bonding or porcelain veneers.
#3: Your Discolored Teeth Are Artificial
If you’re unhappy with the color of your crowns, the teeth in your bridge, or otherwise, you will need a teeth whitening alternative. Whitening systems are formulated for use on your natural dental tissue but not on artificial tissue. As a result, we will simply talk with you about replacement options for a rejuvenated, whiter smile.
