Whiten and Brighten Your Teeth With Help From Our O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentists
Dull and discolored teeth can make your smile, and indeed your overall appearance, look much older than it is in reality. This is because young and healthy enamel is naturally a shade of white. Then, as time goes on, the enamel thins and accumulates environmental stains.
The good news is that our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists can help you reclaim a white and bright smile. The specific type of treatment that is right for you will depend on the type of staining you’re dealing with, as well as your dental goals. Keep reading to get a quick overview of what’s possible.
Professional dental whitening treatments
These treatments use potent topical formulations to minimize stains on the dental surface. Professional whitening is particularly effective on environmental stains—those color deposits that have been left behind from foods, drinks, and tobacco products. Patients love these whitening treatments because they are non-invasive, and can deliver results in just one appointment.
This simple treatment allows our team to resurface unattractive enamel with custom-shaded dental resin. Once the resin is in place, we cure it so that it hardens and bonds to the tooth. Dental bonding can be completed from start to finish in just one appointment, and it can be personalized to suit the patient’s needs.
Similar to dental bonding, veneers cover unsightly enamel in order to make the smile look whiter and brighter. In this case, however, our dental team uses individually crafted, thin porcelain restorations to cover teeth, rather than composite resin. For this reason, veneer treatment takes two to three appointments to complete.
You may be able to achieve your aesthetic goals with just one of these treatments, or you may choose to combine whitening solutions to refresh your smile. Our O’Fallon teeth whitening dentists can help you determine the best course of action. We look forward to speaking with you!
