Your smile appears in many of your facial expressions. If one or more of the teeth in the front of your mouth has been affected by cosmetic or physical imperfections, it can be noticeable and have a significant impact on your social interactions.
In a situation like this, you might want to consider scheduling a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Michael R. Wiesner. The specific nature of the cosmetic imperfections on your smile will largely influence the cosmetic treatment he recommends.
To address a case of chronic dental staining, Dr. Michael R. Wiesner can administer a dental bleaching treatment. This will safely restore your while smile without risking harm to your teeth or gums. Then he can also help you to identify the lifestyle factors to cut back on to prevent future dental stains from redeveloping.
Cutting back on certain dark foods and drinking dark beverages through a straw can help reduce future dental stains. 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 have multiple teeth with minor physical defects, Dr. Michael R. Wiesner might recommend 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 be as receptive to stains like your natural tooth enamel, which helps make it easier for you to maintain your white smile.
If a single tooth in your mouth suffers from abnormal discoloration in the tooth enamel, an existing dental fracture, newly developed cavity, or a discolored dental filling Dr. Michael R. Wiesner might recommend restoring its appearance with a porcelain dental crown.
