6 WAYS TO GET A WHITER SMILE
You don’t have to live with a smile that’s anything but bright white. There are multiple ways your Fort Lauderdale dentist can transform your teeth and give you that whiter smile you’ve been craving. Not every person is a candidate for every option, but there is nearly always something for everyone so you can have stunning teeth.
1. Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening treatments are the obvious first solution when it comes to whitening your smile. Many people opt for over-the-counter treatments first, spending money on promises that don’t deliver. Only your dentist can tell you for sure whether your teeth can be whitened and deliver the kind of bright white results you want using professional-grade bleaching products.
2. Teeth Cleaning
Believe it or not, sometimes all you need to get rid of those dingy stains on your tooth enamel is a thorough, powerful, professional teeth cleaning done by a hygienist or dentist. They can slough away all the stuff you’ve built up for the past several months – from coffee to dark soda to tea to dark sauces – and give you a fresh slate to keep your teeth white and bright.
3. Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are the most transformative cosmetic dentistry treatment. Not only will they conceal all the yellow, brown, or general discoloration on your teeth, they’ll cover up all your other aesthetic complaints too. Misalignment, gaps, short teeth, a narrow smile – porcelain veneers fix all of that plus make your teeth mega-white for a celeb-worth result.
4. Dental Crowns
Some patients have teeth that can’t be whitened, and they would also prefer to avoid veneers to fix their smile. Enter an excellent option – dental crowns. These caps are carefully customized to fit over a person’s teeth and be bonded in place for a secure fit and smile transformation.
You might be wondering how a teeth-straightening method can have any impact on the color of your teeth. If you have crowded teeth, it’s harder to clean between them. As a result, bacteria and food particles build up, only to be removed by your dental hygienist at a dental visit every six months. This unsightly discoloration will continue to happen without intervention and, for many people, that means a course of Invisalign treatment. Straighten out your smile permanently, follow it with a teeth whitening treatment, and you’ll have amazing teeth now and for the future.
6. Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings aren’t only used for correcting tooth decay. Tooth spots and discoloration can be fixed with color-matched fillings, allowing for a quick, easy, cosmetic repair and a smile that looks brand new.
