As time goes by, there are different things that can affect the appearance of your smile. Chips, old fillings, new cavities, and staining issues can all leave you wanting to understand your options for cosmetically enhancing your smile.
If you’ve been struggling to deal with stained teeth, Dr. Kerry Taylor can help you understand your whitening options. The most effective method is to have a dental bleaching treatment administered.
Once your teeth have been safely whitened, Dr. Kerry Taylor can help you understand your options for maintaining your gleamingly white smile. This often includes a modification in diet or the use of whitening toothpaste or whitening strips that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
You might also want to consider cutting back on dark foods and beverages as well as tobacco use. These measures can go a long way toward preventing further stains in the future.
If the teeth in your smile are suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Kerry Taylor might recommend dental veneers. These are basically thin, porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. This can effectively disguise chips and mismatched fillings and give you a white smile that is easy to maintain.
If one or more of the teeth in your smile lacks the sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer, Dr. Kerry Taylor might recommend a porcelain dental crown restoration. This will completely replicate the entire tooth enamel layer with a porcelain material that can be shaded to a brilliant white luster.
