With the start of the new year, you deserve to head into the upcoming months looking and feeling your best. Unfortunately, there is one thing standing in your way of feeling confident. Over the years, your smile has lost its luster. Now, you hide behind discolored and stained teeth. No matter how severely your teeth have darkened, your prosthodontist has the solutions you need. Besides traditional teeth whitening, there are other options to restore a bright smile, like porcelain veneers in La Mesa. With the right treatment, you can eat, speak, and smile without any concern.
Reveal a Brighter Smile
To get a brighter smile, you have likely tried a few over-the-counter products, like a toothpaste or a mouthrinse. Although they are convenient, they will not give you the results you want. They do not contain professional-grade whitening agents, so they will only slightly improve surfaces stains. They are also ineffective against stains that result from medications or genetic issues.
You are not out of options. You can get the results you want with cosmetic dentistry. Depending on the severity and cause of your stains, there is a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Teeth whitening in La Mesa is a popular choice to turn back the hands of time. A professional-strength whitening agent is applied to your teeth to get your smile 8 to 10 shades whiter after just one treatment. Now, you can also enjoy in-office results from the comfort of your own home. A take-home kit allows you to whiten your teeth around your schedule over the course of 2 weeks.
Veneers are thin shells bonded to the surfaces of the teeth to cover imperfections, like tooth discoloration. They are made from porcelain, which closely mimics the appearance of enamel for natural-looking results. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, so your new smile will stay bright.
Besides discoloration, veneers improve the size, shape, and proportion of your teeth overall. You can fix chips, cracks, and minor alignment concerns while also treating the stains.
Crowns are often thought to be a restorative procedure; however, they now hold a commonplace in cosmetic dentistry because they are made from ceramic material. This allows them to improve the appearance of a tooth because it can be customized to match the color of your choice. A crown can cover even the darkest of stains while enhancing the tooth’s appearance and health.

Your prosthodontist performs a comprehensive consultation to determine the underlying cause of your discoloration. Based on their findings and after discussing your desired results, an individualized treatment plan is created to give you a bright, beautiful smile.
