Your teeth become permanently stained, damaged and chipped over time. Poor oral hygiene, eating acidic food may damage the enamel of the teeth, other influences like colorants and smoking could permanently stain your teeth.
To transform the appearance of your discolored teeth a your West Palm Beach or Boca Raton cosmetic dentist at Shapiro Family Dentistry might suggest Tooth Whitening to help with stained teeth. But for some patients Tooth Whitening may not be an effective option, as if there is damage to your teeth or if you have chips Teeth Whitening will not correct your problem.
A qualified Cosmetic dentist will then suggest Porcelain Veneers as another option. Porcelain Veneer is a very thin piece of porcelain composite which is glued to the front surface of your teeth. Another advantage to Porcelain Veneers is that it will fill in any gaps where you may have missing teeth, correct the alignment of your teeth, and cover up all chips and damaged you may have encountered over time.
It is important to find the correct qualified cosmetic dentist that you will be comfortable with, as the process of getting veneers may require several visits. Your chosen cosmetic dentist will then determine whether this is the option for you. If you have any outstanding dental work on your teeth this will have to be taken care of before your cosmetic dentist can proceed with the Porcelain Veneers.
If you would like to ‘Enhance your Smile’ and ‘Transform Your Appearance’ do not hesitate to call a qualified Cosmetic Dentist for an appointment.
