Addressing Significant Dental Discoloration

Some degree of dental discoloration can be difficult to avoid, even if you have a good oral hygiene routine in place. With that said, some patients find themselves alarmed at the state of their smile because they have issues with significant enamel stains, or because of internal problems that affect the color of their tooth structure. Through the right cosmetic procedure, your Katy, TX dentist can help you resolve these problems and show off meaningful smile improvements. We can recommend a treatment based on your current circumstances, and we can discuss the advantages of treatment to take on any other flaws that make you self-conscious.

Significant Dental Discoloration Can Prove Difficult To Treat On Your Own

If you try to take matters into your own hands and whiten your teeth yourself, you can come away from the experience with less than thrilling results. Store bought treatments that provide stain removal can take care of particles on the surface of teeth, but they can make only limited improvements. For people affected by intrinsic discoloration—changes that affect your tooth structure and change the color of your smile—a different treatment approach is needed to make desirable improvements.

Fighting Teeth Stains With Professional Whitening Treatment

With a professional whitening treatment kit, you can take care of teeth stains from the comfort of your home. We provide treatments that include custom trays that help with the application of potent bleaching agents. Through daily applications, you can make your teeth progressively brighter. For those who have especially tough stains, we can also provide a combination of an in-office appointment and follow-up care with treatments that you take home.

How Cosmetic Services Correct Issues With Intrinsic Discoloration

Intrinsic discoloration can be a difficult issue to address, as you will need to look into something other than whitening treatments, as these focus on removing stains. We can provide different cosmetic dental services that can take on discoloration, problems with tooth shape and size, and issues with alignment. Through the placement of porcelain veneers, we can take on significant flaws in the course of just two appointments. These durable, thin shells are strong enough to hold up against years of friction from biting and chewing, making this an effective long-term plan for improving your appearance.
