Many of your facial expressions are accentuated by your smile’s appearance. When your teeth are affected by dental stains, discolored tooth enamel, or minor physical imperfections, it can cause you to guard your expressions.
In a situation like this, you should consider setting up a consultation at Stan Scalf DMD. The specific nature of the cosmetic imperfections on your smile will largely influence the cosmetic dental enhancements our team recommends.
If you have been dealing with dental staining problems, our team can administer a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely restore your while smile without risking harm to your teeth or gums.
Dr. Stan Scalf can also help you to identify the lifestyle factors to cut back on to prevent future dental stains from recurring. You might also want to try maintaining your while smile by using whitening toothpaste or whitening strips to maintain your while smile between dental cleanings.
If you also have physical defects with the teeth in your smile, you may consider dental veneers. They are porcelain shells that will be created in a dental lab to fit over the face of each tooth in your smile. Once they have been cemented in place the dental will look like white tooth enamel.
The special porcelain material of the veneers will not as receptive to stains like your natural tooth enamel. This will help make it easier for you to maintain your white smile for many years to come.
If a single tooth in your mouth suffers from abnormal discoloration in the tooth enamel, a dental fracture, existing cavity, or a discolored dental filling Dr. Stan Scalf might recommend restoring its appearance with a porcelain dental crown.
