Teeth enamel discoloration can be caused by staining, aging or chemical damage to teeth. Porcelain veneers can cover up discoloration and are also the strongest way to repair a broken portion of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of the tooth to change the color or shape of the tooth. They are ideal for teeth that are too small, too big, or have uneven surfaces. Porcelain veneers solve such irregularities and create a durable and pleasing smile. Porcelain veneers are as strong as your own teeth and resist future discoloration and chipping. They make a dramatic, immediate difference to your smile and your self-esteem. A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of the face and with porcelain veneers you can smile with complete confidence.
There are many causes of tooth discoloration. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, and red wine. During tooth formation, the consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics, or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration. Whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of the enamel. It is safe, effective, and fast. Dr. Sielicki prefers KöR Teeth Whitening for optimal results. The highly potent gel contains hydrogen peroxide to gently break apart stains. The advanced formula provides comprehensive whitening with no lasers and no lights. Instead, KöR utilizes comfortable, form-fitting trays to hold the gel precisely in place, leaving you with a smile up to eight shades brighter.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements set in your treatment plan. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply begin a new set of aligners every two weeks, until your treatment is complete, and you achieve the confident smile that you have always wanted. The best part about Invisalign® is that most people will not even know you are straightening your teeth.
Bonding is the term used when a dentist places a tooth colored filling onto the tooth to repair a fractured tooth, cover up a discoloration on a tooth, or close up a small space or gap between two teeth. Bonding is a simple process that is usually completed in one visit, with bonding, an enamel-like material is applied to the surface of a tooth, and then sculpted, hardened, and polished to create a perfect smile.
Is there a defect in your smile that always draws your eye in the mirror? A chip in a front tooth, some worn edges, or shallow pits or grooves in the tooth enamel are all minor issues, but they do stand in the way of having a perfect smile. If you suffer from one or more of these problems, they can all be fixed using a procedure called enamel reshaping. Enamel reshaping involves removing a small amount of enamel to improve the appearance of a tooth or to adjust a person’s bite. Enamel reshaping adjustments are minor but important procedures that do not cause any long-term damage to teeth. It is performed quickly with no anesthesia necessary.
