Cosmetic Solutions For Dental Discoloration

When stains begin to gather in your otherwise healthy smile, cosmetic dentistry can offer rapid improvement. If your teeth look a little less bright than they did in recent years, a professional whitening treatment could address stains that exist inside your teeth’s enamel. Our experts can examine your smile to determine the nature of your discoloration and provide alternative treatments as well. We can provide a set of porcelain veneers to help you tackle issues due to the loss of the enamel itself. Whatever the cause of your smile’s imperfections, we will work with you to design a treatment plan that restores your confidence in your grin.

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we know that your smile takes center stage when making an impression. That is why we provide procedures that go beyond addressing the health and function of your smile. We often combine cosmetic treatments with restorative treatments to provide more comprehensive smile makeovers in patients with more complex dental issues. When it comes to the color of your smile, cosmetic enhancement is often the next step after addressing health concerns that lead to discoloration.

How Stains Take Hold Of The Surface Of Your Teeth

While some causes of discoloration are genetic, there are a variety of behaviors that lead to staining teeth. Certain food and drinks contain pigments that can collect in the mineralized surface of your enamel. Pay attention to soda, coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco as these are common culprits for staining smiles. Keeping up with your daily oral hygiene also goes a long way in clearing off the plaque that leaves a yellow film on the surface of your smile. After receiving a professional teeth whitening session, you can focus on correcting these behaviors to help its white appearance last longer. We are also happy to provide you with take-home kits that you may reapply at your convenience to continue touchup care.

When Yellow Teeth Result From Enamel Loss

If the source of your discoloration is due to losing the enamel itself, we can design a set of porcelain veneers to provide stunning results. These treatments also address other cosmetic concerns like chips, cracks, and minor spacing issues in your grin. By selecting the shade of your dental ceramic, we can instantly create whatever color you find best complements your appearance. To care for your veneers, continue to practice rigorous hygiene at home and attend regular checkups to see that your teeth are free from decay.


We can investigate your smile’s discoloration to help plan a treatment plan that restores its original shade. To find out more about how we help fight teeth stains, please contact our Sunny Smiles location on N Zaragoza Rd in El Paso, TX at (915) 849-9000.
