While there are several issues that people bring up when discussing cosmetic dentistry, many will look at treatment options to make their smile whiter. It is hard to avoid all of the foods and drinks that leave stains on our enamel, and even if you keep your teeth safe from cavities, the particles those products leave behind can slowly gather over time. As a result, you can have a smile that looks dull and less attractive. At our Walnut Creek, CA dental office, we provide several solutions for this. Our teeth whitening services include take-home care and in-office procedures. We also provide effective care for patients who have discoloration stemming from internal problems rather than just external stains.
Fighting discoloration can prove difficult if you only try to do so on your own. The stains on your teeth can build over the course of years, and deeper and tougher stains require more than just care that removes particles from the surfaces of your enamel. Store bought whitening agents lack the potency to reach and treat deeper discoloration. Fortunately, your dentist can provide solutions that are more capable of delivering the improvements that you want to see.
Our office can actually recommend multiple teeth whitening solutions. We offer a convenient and disposable solution as well as at-home whitening treatment with trays that are custom made for you. Another option is to come in for an in-office touch-up to improve your smile color. For those patients who have significant staining, we can recommend KöR whitening, a solution that combines in-office treatment and care from the comfort of your home.
Enamel stains from foods, drinks, and tobacco products are known as extrinsic discoloration. Intrinsic discoloration refers to problems with tooth color beneath the enamel. Certain medications, injuries, and gradual enamel erosion can all lead to this issue. After examining you and determining if this is a problem you face, we can recommend treatments that are better suited to resolving this problem. Custom dental veneers and dental bonding services can both prove helpful. In some cases, we may recommend using dental crowns to deal with more significant forms of this problem.
If you want to dazzle the people in your life with a bright and confident smile, the right teeth whitening treatment can certainly help! Our office has different solutions that we can discuss with you. We can also recommend the right treatment approach if we find that you have trouble with intrinsic discoloration rather than just enamel stains.
