Deeply stained teeth or teeth with small chips and other imperfections can lead you to explore your options to improve your smile. There is a wide variety of options available to you. Finding the one that is right for you depends on the level of cosmetic improvement you are looking for.
If you have teeth in your smile that are deeply stained and also have minor chips and imperfections, you should talk to your dentist about being fitted for dental veneers. The veneers are essentially thin, white porcelain shells, custom designed to fit over the face of the teeth in your smile.
If your teeth are merely stained, you might just want to investigate tooth whitening products and procedures. It’s a good idea to talk to your dentist before starting any whitening regimen. They can help you find the products and procedures that will best meet your whitening goals. How deeply your teeth are stained will greatly influence the method needed to give you the bright, white smile you want.
Minor stains on teeth can sometimes be brightened by a simple whitening toothpaste or whitening strips. However, if the teeth in your smile are deeply stained you will need a stronger procedure.
The most effective way to whiten your teeth is the dental tooth bleaching procedure offered by your dentist. This procedure uses concentrated bleaching agents that are significantly stronger than anything available on store shelves.
