Many patients are reluctant to smile because their teeth are stained or discolored. There are several treatments available … your dentist will consult with you to determine which option is more likely to provide optimum results for you.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening – This treatment usually is preceded by having teeth cleaned to remove all plaque build-up. The Zoom! technician will protect all oral tissues and continue by applying the whitening gel on exposed teeth. A laser or curing light is used to expedite whitening.
After the initial application it may be determined a second round is needed. This can be completed during the same appointment. It is important to note that Zoom! teeth whitening can continue to lighten up to two weeks following treatment.
Another option for stubborn stains is KOR deep bleaching. This tooth whitening treatment allows teeth to absorb oxygen which helps the whitening elements release stains.
If your smile is hampered by more than stain or discoloration, there is another option that is more permanent than whitening and can resolve chipped, broken, or uneven dentition; can make unwanted gaps between teeth seem to disappear; and can be geared to treating one or multiple teeth. That is with porcelain veneers … a minimally invasive, yet permanent option to treat a variety of dental cosmetic maladies.
For the patient that is looking for a more economic and less time consuming remedy, Snap-On Smile is made of strong, thin resin that fits comfortably over teeth. It’s easy and affordable; can hide chips, stains, unwanted gaps between teeth, and missing teeth.
