For years, the Mount Prospect Cosmetic Dentist has been transforming the appearance of teeth with the help of advances in cosmetic dentistry. Every patient and situation is unique and fortunately there are many options available to correct various cosmetic conditions. One of the most sought after treatments is teeth whitening.
Many patients can easily achieve the results they want with a professional teeth whitening treatment. For others, this approach is not enough to help you obtain the great smile you’re looking for. It may be that the best treatment is for your teeth to be resurfaced in order to get the results you want.
If you are interested in a treatment that will really transform your smile, you may want to consider porcelain veneers that can address a number of cosmetic issues.
Badly Stained Teeth
Some patient’s teeth are more resistant to whitening treatments than others. Veneers may be an alternative if you have had whitening treatments but not achieved the results you desire.
One of the unfortunate side effects of the antibiotic, tetracycline, is that patients can end up with teeth that are dark and permanently stained. Since this staining is deep in the enamel of the teeth it is difficult to remove with products that are made to whiten the surface of the tooth enamel.
Many young patients have also developed fluorosis as a result of consuming too much fluoride while their teeth are developing. Teeth that have been affected by fluorosis are often stained as the dental enamel contains surface pits and grooves.
Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of porcelain placed over your existing teeth. By using veneers at our Mount Prospect Cosmetic Dentist office, our team can create a smile that helps make teeth appear bright and beautiful. We will be happy to answer any questions and help you decide which cosmetic treatment will work best for your situation. Veneers can help patients with severely damaged teeth obtain the perfect smile they are looking for.
