If you are struggling with cosmetic imperfections on the teeth in your smile, it can leave you feeling socially awkward. Fortunately, Your dentist, Dr. Paul Tanners, is highly trained and experienced in a number of cosmetic dental treatments that can improve your smile. The specific nature of the imperfections will largely determine the method he recommends for restoring the appearance of your teeth.
If your teeth also have chips or visible fillings, your dentist can restore the faces of each tooth by installing porcelain dental veneers. These are basically thin, porcelain shells that are shaded bright white and cemented onto the faces of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface stains in the future, making it easy to maintain your white smile for a long time.
If one or more teeth have been compromised by an old filling, your dentist might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.
If your teeth suffer from staining problems, retail-level whitening products like whitening toothpaste or strips are rarely strong enough to brighten your smile. If you have moderate to deeply stained teeth, your dentist can perform a professional dental bleaching in New York, New York. Once your teeth have been fully whitened, you can then maintain your smile with whitening strips or whitening toothpaste.
If you are unhappy with your smile’s appearance, you should call Paul Tanners, D.D.S. at 212-697-1122 to understand the best method for improving your smile.
