Tooth whitening has become very popular in recent years. Having beautiful white teeth can improve your self-esteem and confidence. With many different products available on the market today, it can be hard to find the dental procedure that is right for you.
Maple Avenue Family Dentistry in Barrington, RI is the perfect place to obtain all the information you need on how to whiten your teeth. The clinic has eleven fully qualified dentists that can perform a number of procedures to help you gain the beautiful smile you seek. The options include:
Bleaching: Bleaching is one of the easiest ways to whiten your teeth. It is cost effective and the procedure can be performed in less than an hour at your dental surgery. The process begins by having a custom mouth piece fitted. A bleaching solution is applied to your teeth and the mouth piece is put in place for around an hour. When the mouth piece is removed, your teeth will feel clean and look whiter.
Why should you see a dentist for bleaching over a DIY Kit? Custom made mouth pieces stop the whitening solution from escaping and affecting other areas of your body. Over-the-counter kits use generic mouth pieces that can leak. Pitting, uneven whitening and nerve damage can occur from improper bleaching.
Laser Treatment: A whitening solution is applied to your stained teeth. A laser is used to activate the solution and remove discoloration quickly. Over the course of an hour your teeth will become noticeably whiter. The laser whitening dental procedure produces faster results than a standard bleaching treatment.
Crowns: Crowns are caps which are placed over a tooth that is permanently discolored or chipped. The crown is used to restore the tooth to its natural shape and appearance. Crowns last a long time and look just like your other teeth. It’s the perfect solution for people who want to keep their original teeth.
Plastic and Porcelain Veneers: Many people opt for veneers over bleaching. Veneers hide discoloration, chips, uneven or damaged teeth. They look just like your teeth and no one will be able to tell the difference. Why not call Maple Avenue Family Dentistry and talk to them about having veneers applied to your teeth? The staff is helpful and friendly and will talk to you about the different types of veneers that would suit your needs.
Bonding: If your teeth are slightly decayed or pitted, bonding might be the answer for you. Bonding is a tooth-colored substance which covers gaps, pitting and staining on your teeth. It can be applied in just one visit and will last for years to come. Bonding is cost effective and provides an alternative to veneers.
