Follow along for more on our techniques and patient comfort!

Rewind Discoloration

Our mouths have purpose far beyond eating, but our diet choices can leave lasting remnants of the things we consume. Beverages such as red wine and coffee are particular culprits, but even healthy fruits and vegetables can stain your enamel. If you are a tobacco user, it is always the best move to quit as soon as you possibly can. There are many apps available to go alongside nicotine withdrawal aids, and this decision can do wonders for the life of your mouth.

But if these stains have taken hold, then removing them may take a bit of work. While there is a wide array of over-the-counter options, the safest and most effective method is in the dental office. We can gently lift your stains rather than using harsh bleaches that can weaken your enamel and leave you susceptible to sensitivity and decay! If you are suffering from discoloration, call us about a teeth whitening procedure.

The Opportunity Is Endless

One of the most versatile procedures available to the contemporary dentist is the use of porcelain veneers. These are ceramic caps that replace or reinforce the natural enamel, or the incredibly strong surface of our teeth that gives them their function. This procedure got its start, believe it or not, through a Hollywood dentist in the 1920s. When hired to create a special effect prosthetic for a film, he opted to use this strong and resilient form of clay.

This worked incredibly well, and laid the groundwork for what we do today. Porcelain veneers can be used in many situations, which is another big benefit of them. Teeth that may be broken or cracked can find quick repair with this technique. But also other concerns such as alignment may be able to be remedied through our skilled ceramicists’ use of scale and proportion. This is a highly popular method of bringing both strength and beauty to your smile, so ask your trained oral health professional about the possibility today!
