Dental staining is a very common aesthetic problem among teen and adult dental patients. Your teeth may become discolored due to environmental issues or due to underlying structural changes in your dental structure. The good news is that no matter what the root cause of your dental discoloration, our Glendale dentists can help you whiten and brighten your smile.
The first treatment that many people consider when looking to combat dental discoloration is professional whitening treatment. This treatment is completely non-invasive, quick, and quite affordable. During your appointment, our team will apply a whitening gel to your dental enamel; as this gel activities, it goes to work lightening existing stains on your teeth. The professional dental whitening treatment process can be repeated multiple times until you achieve your desired results.
There are also aesthetic treatments that can cover discolored or unattractive teeth with natural-looking materials.
· Dental bonding—this treatment allows our team to resurface problematic teeth or your entire smile with personalized dental resin. Dental resin, once applied and bonded to your natural tooth is sturdy and durable. The entire dental bonding process can be completed in just one dental appointment.
· Cosmetic LUMINEERS—these individual cosmetic restorations are designed to completely cover the patient’s natural tooth. Exceptionally thin LUMINEERS can visually resurface the patient’s smile without adding unnecessary bulk or weight to the tooth. Our dental team will design your LUMINEERS to look natural for you; these restorations can be used to improve the shape of your smile, close gaps between your teeth, and…you guessed it…brighten and whiten your smile!
You may be able to achieve you desired aesthetic results using one of these treatments, or you may find that combining multiple aesthetic solutions is the best way to go. Our Glendale cosmetic dentists are here to give you all of the information and guidance that you need in order to make these important decisions.
