Treating Your Smile Discoloration

Is your smile as bright as you would like it to be? If stains or a yellow hue are building on the surface of your teeth, cosmetic dental treatment can restore your original, bright shade. While your smile could be otherwise completely healthy, discoloration can cause others to question your oral hygiene. This can alter your confidence when taking in your appearance. For your mental well-being and sense of self, a whitening treatment could be just the boost you need! By exploring other cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers, you can learn how we address multiple smile imperfections at the same time.

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we prioritize your appearance along with your oral health. This is because our day-to-day lives can rapidly take a toll on the appearance of our teeth. From certain food and drinks to minor physical injuries, smile flaws build little by little until they become quite noticeable. While over-the-counter treatment may seem convenient, our professional services take your specific level of needed care into direct view. You deserve the best when it comes to tackling stains.

How Teeth Build Stains Over Time

Learning the various causes of dental stains can help you change your behaviors to preserve your smile. While some factors are out of your control, the food and drink you select play a big role in the color of your teeth. If you enjoy soda, tea, coffee, or wine, pay attention to if any of them leave streaks behind after consumption. Consider selecting an alternate beverage to protect the color of your enamel. Tobacco use is a major contributor, leaving behind black and brown tarry stains. That means that a healthy smile is one of many benefits of smoking cessation! If it has been longer than you would like to admit since your last dental checkup, poor oral hygiene can leave behind a yellow film. Make sure to schedule a cleaning every six months to receive a healthy grin!

Placing Porcelain Veneers To Enhance Your Appearance

When your stains are due to the lack of enamel itself, a set of veneers can instantly rebuild your smile’s lost shade. This versatile treatment option also corrects problems with chips, spacing, and lost height due to grinding. By simply attaching your veneers to the surface of your smile, you maintain your natural teeth while receiving a completely new appearance! Care for your new dental caps with rigorous oral hygiene and a commitment to dental checkups.
