Teeth Whitening vs. Veneers

Teeth Whitening vs. Veneers

One of the most economical and effective smile makeovers can be achieved with teeth whitening. But in some instances, that might not be enough. A consultation with your cosmetic dentist will identify the many ways to transform your smile providing you with options from simple and easy to extensive.

Every time you walk out your front door your teeth are on display. Smiling, laughing, speaking, and eating in public make you very aware of your appearance. Friends, family, co-workers, and strangers are there to assess your countenance; and you always want to put your best foot forward.

Daily brushing and flossing coupled with visits with your dentist every six months for the thorough cleaning needed to remove plaque and a dental exam will help keep your teeth healthy. But you can take it one step further by asking your dental provider what you can do to improve your smile.

Once teeth are cleaned, your dentist can easily assess your candidacy for teeth whitening. If dental stain or discoloration mars your appearance, custom fabricated whitening trays used in conjunction with the powerful whitening agents your dentist can provide can enhance your appearance quickly and in the privacy of home.

Teeth whitening provided by your dentist is superior to pastes, strips, rinses, and generic tray kits you buy at the store or online. Your dentist is licensed to dispense safe and effective whitening products. Plus you are provided with the expertise of use them correctly to realize optimum results.

Deep dental stain, chipped enamel, misshapen teeth, unwanted gaps, and receding gum tissue are dental conditions that require more extensive cosmetic care. Dental veneers provide a minimally invasive option that can resolve a multitude of cosmetic dental conditions.

Veneers are extremely thin shells made from porcelain that are cemented to the front of teeth requiring repair. They are made to match surrounding biological teeth that will remain untreated. Porcelain can be molded and color matched to provide a nearly perfect complement, making them the ideal solution for a more extensive cosmetic remedy.

Veneers offer a permanent response to cosmetic needs, and teeth whitening is effective for brightening your smile. There are touch-ups available that allow you to keep your enhancement fresh.

Your cosmetic dentist will make all information available to you, but whatever decision you make, you will enjoy a smile makeover that will enhance your appearance. Contact us at Richardson Dentistry to discuss your options!
