In this type of situation, the dentist will generally consider teeth whitening treatments first. However, if you have tried this in the past and they do not work, your staining issues may be more severe. This can happen due to health issues you may have had or because of antibiotics, you may have taken in the past. In these cases, whitening treatments do not work and you will need to try another type of treatment.

One of the most common treatment cosmetic dentistry suggests is dental veneers. Dental veneers are designed to cover up the discolorations in your teeth by using thin porcelain shells to go over the teeth affected. This can often be a good way to correct this type of issue.

When you choose dental veneers, your dentist will spend some time with you checking various shades of porcelain to make sure the color chosen will blend in well with your natural teeth. He or she will also need to remove a portion of the enamel from your teeth so the veneers fit smoothly against your gum line. After this is done, impressions of your teeth can be made so the veneers can be created.

Once the veneers have been created, they will be custom fitted on your teeth. Often the dentist will need to make minor adjustments before placing them, so they fit as naturally as possible. Once this is done, the veneers will be permanently affixed to your teeth.

Dental veneers can be a great way to cover up unsightly stains or discoloration issues. This can be a great boost to your self-confidence and esteem. For more information, please contact Joseph A. Schell D.D.S. S.C.
