Solutions for Discolored Teeth
Are your teeth yellow, brown, stained or otherwise discolored? Plano cosmetic dentist Dr. Mark Sowell offers a variety of quick and affordable solutions for yellow teeth, stained or discolored teeth.
There are many possible reasons why a person can have yellow teeth. Foods such as coffee, tea, and red wine, smoking, and even prescription medications can stain your teeth over time. Rigorous tooth brushing and a great oral hygiene routine will keep you teeth healthy, but they can’t fight the dimming effects of repeated exposure to staining elements. Even over the counter bleaching systems can only do so much. To really turn back the clock, you’ll need to go to a certified Dallas cosmetic dentist.
Professional Tooth Whitening
Using an over-the-counter whitening system is like trying to get a spaghetti stain out of a white tablecloth using nothing but a whitening laundry detergent; when what you really need to do is give it a nice long soak in fabric bleach. Professional tooth whitening can take those tough surface stains off your teeth in just a few sessions- but what if you don’t have the time for a prolonged treatment? Dr. Mark Sowell knows how full your schedule can be, so he offers his patients a one hour professional tooth whitening treatment.
In just one hour, you can literally turn up the wattage on your smile with an innovative treatment known as the Zoom Advanced Power whitening solution. With Zoom, you can see your teeth brighten by up to eight full shades in just one hour.
Other Whitening Options
The Zoom Advanced Power whitening solution does work for everybody with superficial tooth staining on natural teeth, but no whitening treatment can change the color of artificial dental structure such as crowns, bridges, and fillings. Discoloration due to tooth trauma, damage, or aging requires a different solution. For patients with these issues, porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be just what the doctor ordered.
Porcelain Veneers– These custom colored, super fine porcelain shells actually cover your teeth with a brand new surface that looks and feels incredibly like your original tooth enamel. Using impressions, they are customized for a precise fit to each tooth.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding– Dental bonding uses a tooth colored biocompatible composite resin that is applied directly to the tooth and sculpted into the proper shape and form. Then the material is cured to the tooth using a special light. Teeth bonding can provide an economical cosmetic treatment option for patients who do not want to commit to veneers yet.
