A sparkling smile can go a long way to boost a person’s self-confidence. Unfortunately, keeping your smile white can be a challenge. Foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and pasta sauce can leave behind tiny particles that discolor the teeth and darken the smile. Over time, this can leave many dental patients searching for treatment options for teeth discoloration. Dr. Theodore Siegel and the team at Big Smile Dental in Chicago, IL, work closely with their patients to deliver the results they want.
Porcelain dental veneers
Patients who want to address teeth discoloration can achieve the results they want with porcelain dental veneers. This treatment uses very thin strips of porcelain, attached to the front of the teeth, to mask imperfections such as stains, yellowing, or dark areas on the teeth. The veneers can also address other imperfections such as minor misalignment, chips, or cracks in the teeth.
Benefits of dental veneers
In addition to providing a beautiful smile, dental veneers offer other benefits to patients:
- A custom smile – Veneers are created according to the dentist’s specifications. This allows the patient and the dentist to control the result and ensure a natural and beautiful smile. The porcelain material closely mimics tooth enamel, with light reflecting qualities.
- Easy treatment – Because porcelain veneers are very thin, there is little preparation of the tooth that must be done prior to their application. This protects the natural tooth and speeds the treatment time.
- Stain resistant – Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining. This makes veneers a great option for patients who don’t want to sacrifice their morning coffee for a sparkling smile.
