No one deserves to live with stained teeth. Yellow and brown discoloration of the teeth can severely damage a person’s self-confidence. Nobody wants to smile as big when their teeth are stained. If you want to get rid of your obnoxious teeth stains, come in and see our dentist office. We have many ways to give you back a brilliant, white smile with our teeth stain removal techniques.
The first step in the teeth stain removal process is a deep teeth cleaning with an expert dental hygienist. This cleaning will remove the plaque that is contributing to the staining. This will not remove the stains, but it will clean the teeth so that the teeth whitening will be ready to begin.
One option for whitening the teeth is bleaching. There are several different types of bleaching products available at various levels of strength. The power of this bleach whitening can be supercharged by using a laser to enhance its effectiveness.
There are two types of teeth stains. Extrinsic stains are stains that are on the surface of the teeth. These stains can be removed with bleaching. On the other hand, there are intrinsic stains. These stains penetrate the enamel to go deep inside the tooth. Bleaching will not be enough for intrinsic stains.
One type of treatment used for deep staining is applying veneers. These are very thin coverings that fit right over your existing teeth. Veneers can give back smiles to South Charlotte dentist patients with even the deepest staining. After having veneers applied, you will be able to walk out of the office immediately with a dazzling, white smile.
For people who suffer from a lot of wear and tear on their teeth, it may not be possible to get a perfect fit with veneers. In these cases, crowns can be used. Crowns can be applied over the worn-down, stained teeth to give back patients their smiles.
There is no need to go through life without a brilliant smile. Contact our South Charlotte dentist office today to find out more about the ways we have to beautify your smile. Dr. Snapp and Dr. Suttles are eager to use our powerful teeth whitening techniques to give you a smile that dazzles the eye.
