If you have white or brown splotches on your teeth, there is no need to worry. Oftentimes, this is the result of fluorosis, which is a condition that occurs when the teeth are exposed to too much fluoride. This can make the teeth unattractive. Fortunately, there are dental treatments our dentist, Dr. Michael Sanders, offers to help improve the appearance of your smile.
The first treatment is dental bonding. Dental bonding is a simple and easy treatment that involves your dentist placing a resin material over the teeth. Then, he will shape that resin to the desired appearance. Once it’s perfect, he will harden it with a special light.
The second treatment is porcelain veneers. Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are made in a dental lab, and they are made to fit perfectly over your teeth. Your dentist will remove a portion of your tooth and will cement the veneer onto the tooth when it is made and sent back from the lab.
The third treatment is deep whitening. Deep teeth whitening can only be performed at the dental office. It involves your dentist using special whitening tools (like whitening trays and whitening gel) and eliminating the discoloration in your chompers.
