As the years go by, it’s possible for dental stains to set into teeth, or for physical imperfections like chips and old fillings to appear in your smile. When this happens, your unappealing smile can have an adverse effect on your self-image, leaving you uncomfortable in certain social settings. Fortunately, there are multiple methods to improve your smile’s appearance at Country Club Dental’s Stockton, California clinic.
If you’re struggling with dental staining issues or otherwise discolored tooth enamel, our dentist can help you explore your whitening options. In most situations, the most effective method is to have a dental bleaching treatment administered.
After your white smile has been restored, we can help you understand your options for maintaining your lustrous-white smile. This might include changes in your food and beverage choices or use a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
If you have multiple physical imperfections, your dentist might recommend dental veneers. These are thin shells, crafted from dental-grade porcelain, are cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. They are effective for disguising chips, and mismatched fillings, while also giving you a white smile that is easy to maintain.
Sometimes a tooth has been compromised by an old filling or shallow tooth enamel, making it invalid for a dental veneer. In a situation like this, your dentist might recommend restoring that tooth with a porcelain crown. This will replicate the tooth enamel layer in the same dental-grade porcelain material matched to the dental veneers.
