BOCA RATON DENTIST EXPLAINS THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TEETH WHITENING TREATMENTS AND DENTAL VENEERS FOR DENTAL REJUVENATION
Tuesday, May 08, 2012
So many patients come in to our Boca Raton dental office for cosmetic treatment because they’ve noticed that their teeth have lost some of the shine and luminosity they used to enjoy. Young, strong dental enamel is naturally white and bright, which is why most patients don’t think too much about their appearance of their teeth when they’re young. With age, however, dental enamel thins and becomes stained. Consequently, adult patients are often looking for cosmetic dentistry treatments that can whiten their teeth and take years off of their appearances.
Today I’m going to be discussing two cosmetic treatments that we offer here in Boca Raton. These two treatments—teeth whitening and dental veneers—can both achieve stunning results, and are suitable for a wide variety of patients.
Teeth whitening treatments are simple, efficient, and effective. In just one or two appointments, many patients can achieve drastic cosmetic improvement with professional teeth whitening treatments. Teeth whitening is especially effective for patients with environmental surface stains—stains accumulated from substances such as red wine, cola, coffee, and tea, all of which can stain enamel over time.
If you find that your teeth are not receptive to professional teeth whitening treatments, however, dental veneers may be an option for you. These thin, white layers of porcelain are affixed to the outside of teeth. They can correct a wide variety of cosmetic problems including dark or stained enamel. Patients suffering from dental fluorosis or tetracycline staining often choose dental veneers. Additionally, if your teeth are looking dull or damaged, veneers can correct chips and cracks as they whiten.
These cosmetic dentistry treatments are helping patients all over Boca Raton enjoy fresher, younger-looking smiles. Give us a call if you’re looking for cosmetic dentistry in Boca Raton–we can tell you more about your options during your personal consultation!
