Finding The Right Path To A Brighter Smile

When you start to see changes to the brightness of your smile, you may grow concerned. If you have attempted to address discoloration with store bought whitening agents, or a brand of whitening toothpaste, you may be worried by the limited results to come from your efforts. If you want to know how you can make your smile notably brighter, schedule a time to talk with your Katy, TX dentist’s office about cosmetic dental work. Through a professional whitening treatment, you can eradicate problems associated with discoloration. If your discoloration is the result of something different than teeth stains, your dentist can find a procedure that leads to real results. 

Examining Your Smile To Make Sure Your Cosmetic Treatment Has The Desired Results

Your dentist can advise you on the right treatment to help with your goal of improving the color of your smile. Many people see their teeth become dull, or take on a yellowish hue, because they have stains that have gathered in their enamel. While these stains are tough to address with over the counter products, a professional whitening treatment can more effectively remove stains below the surface of your enamel. You can take home a whitening kit, or use a combination of in-office and take-home care to remove especially tough stains.

If you have problems with internal tooth issues that result in discoloration, a whitening treatment may not be the treatment for you. Instead, your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers, which can hide these types of problems. Veneers also provide the benefit of hiding dental damage, and other flaws.

What Kind Of Changes Can You Make To Avoid Future Discoloration?

After any cosmetic procedure, you should think about how changes to your daily routine can help you preserve your results. Limit items that cause stains – dark and color-rich items leave staining particles behind, and acidic products can weaken your enamel, so stains have an easier time taking hold. You should also take care to keep your smile clean throughout the day.
