O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentist Lists Three Different Ways To Whiten Smiles
Dental staining and discoloration is incredibly common among patients of many ages. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists know that stained teeth can really take a toll on how people feel about their smiles. That is why we provide the cosmetic treatments necessary to whiten and brighten discolored teeth. Today we are reviewing three effective ways for patients to regain bright and luminous smiles.
Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments
This type of treatment is designed to lighten and whiten your natural teeth. Our dentist places a bleaching formula on your enamel. You’ll then rest in the dentist’s chair while this formulation goes to work minimizing existing stains. This entire process generally takes less than an hour to complete, and it is completely non-invasive. Additionally, this process can be repeated multiple times until you reach your desired level of dental whiteness.
While professional whitening treatments lift stains from a patient’s dental enamel, dental bonding actually covers unsightly enamel with white and bright dental resin. Our dentist will apply the resin to your enamel, and then cure it using a special light. Once the resin has cured, it will be bonded to your natural enamel, and capable of withstanding the wear and tear of daily life. Our dental team customizes the color of the dental resin we use for each patient, in order to ensure natural-looking results.
LUMINEERS provide another option for people who want to cover their natural enamel with fresh and white materials. LUMINEERS are individual aesthetic restorations crafted from Cerinate porcelain. Our dental team will attach your customized LUMINEER over your natural enamel—once the LUMINEER is in place it stays there permanently. Again, LUMINEERS are completely customizable—from size, to shape, to color—to deliver attractive results.
So there you have it! Three effective way to whiten and refresh your smile. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists are here to help you choose the perfect treatment for you, specifically. Please contact our office to get started!
