What you want, of course, is likely similar to what many of our Overland Park, KS patients want. You want to say goodbye to the staining that is putting a serious storm cloud over your smile, causing it to look drab, sad, dingy, yellow, etc. Fortunately, though you may feel this is a tall order, it is not! There are many pathways that will guide you toward a stellar, whiter grin. It’s just a matter of coming in to learn more about cosmetic care and going from there. Let’s talk details!
Take Time For A Consultation
First, remember that when you want to find out how you can achieve a whiter smile, you’ll have to begin at the very beginning with a cosmetic consultation. This is essentially just a time for us to check up on your smile, so we can be sure you’re ready for cosmetic care. If not, you can schedule whatever restorative care is needed to get your smile into tip-top shape, so you’re ready to work on its esthetics. It’s also time for us to discuss every last particular. You can tell us about what your dreams are and we can explain which treatment best lines up with helping you reach your goals!
If It’s Just About Removing Stains
When what you need is for us to help you remove stains from your smile, we can do so with teeth whitening. This is a very popular method of helping patients attain whiter smiles. With the help of a bleaching gel that penetrates your enamel and breaks those stains up, the stains disappear, revealing your snowier looking grin. However, it’s not for everyone!
When You Need Camouflaging Instead
On the other hand, teeth whitening is not always the best solution. There are many possible reasons that you may require another pathway. For instance, the staining may be quite deep and something that traditional whitening cannot reach and address. Your staining might be very serious, which means that even with whitening, the shade you achieve will not be bright enough. However, as mentioned, you may instead benefit from camouflaging your stains, instead of trying to physically remove them. Here are the different options that can put a very brilliant grin on your face:
Bonding: Dental bonding is a means of camouflaging stains, through which we use color-customized composite painted over the surface of the affected teeth. This is something we may use for multiple teeth or even to cover a single tooth or stain.
Veneers: Porcelain veneers are little shells that are constructed with an extremely thin finish. Made of color-customized porcelain, they allow us to cover up stains for a beautiful finish, as we bond them to your teeth.
