Dr. Dan Knellinger and the rest of the staff at Knellinger Dental Excellence are proficient with a number of dentistry options. Many of our patients want to see a dentist to correct cosmetic issues with a smile. However, many of them do not want anything too extensive. Fortunately, these people have an option with minimally invasive cosmetic treatments.
There are several reasons why teeth stain. Some of the most common include:
• Drinks, such as red wine, tea and coffee
With teeth whitening, a dental professional bleaches the teeth with a material containing either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. It breaks down the stain, making teeth as much as eight times brighter in just one hour. To retain the effects of the treatment, the patient needs to continue brushing and flossing on a daily basis.
To straighten teeth, veneers are a great choice. They are made out of porcelain, making them much more difficult to stain than natural enamel. They fix worn down, chipped, misaligned or slightly gapped teeth. They are great for correcting alignment issues when orthodontic treatment seems too extreme for a particular case.
For moderately decayed teeth, composite fillings help create a more natural aesthetic. A major advantage is that these fillings blend in better than metal. The dentist can even alter the shading of the filling, so it matches the color of the enamel precisely. Fillings also make the tooth stronger, preventing more damage in the future.
