Addressing Smile Discoloration Through Cosmetic Dentistry

A person’s confidence in their smile can be closely linked to the color of their teeth. If you have observed a change in the way you look because of smile discoloration, you can feel that the overall quality of your smile has dipped significantly. At our Katy, TX dental practice, we can help you regain your confidence in the look of your teeth through cosmetic dentistry. For people who have issues with discoloration, teeth stains are often a concern. We are able to help with this by offering both in-office and take-home whitening treatments. If you have a problem with the color of your smile that can be traced to something other than teeth stains, we can look at different treatment options to provide meaningful improvements.

Why Should You Be Concerned With The Source Of Your Discoloration?

You might not realize it, but the cause of your dental discoloration can determine what cosmetic procedure we recommend for you. Discoloration from teeth stains can be directly addressed through a whitening procedure, but problems with enamel erosion, or changes after you take certain medications, can require a different approach. Once we determine the cause of your dental discoloration, we can talk to you about the most effective treatment option!

Taking Care Of Teeth Stains With Professional Care

We offer take-home whitening treatments for our patients, as well as the option to come in for a single-appointment whitening procedure. Both of these options rely on bleaching agents that are capable of doing more than the whitening products you might find at your local grocery store, or on the shelves of your nearest pharmacy. If your stains are uncommonly stubborn, we can recommend a combined approach – by having your teeth whitened at home AND at our office, you can see some truly stunning results!

Restoring A Smile Affected By Internal Discoloration

If you have a problem with internal discoloration, or if your thinning enamel is starting to show more of your dentin’s color, we can recommend an approach to cosmetic care that can lead to real improvements. Internal discoloration can be corrected through the placement of veneers, so you can start to show off a better and brighter smile. We can also discuss the benefits of dental bonding, which sees your enamel covered with a resin material that can improve a tooth’s shape, size, and color.
