Whitening or Porcelain Veneers: Which is the Best Treatment For You?

Thinking of ways to improve your smile? There are several options in line with cosmetic dentistry that can give you a smile makeover- the most popular choice usually being teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Wondering which treatment is right for you? Read on for more information!

Whitening treatment

If your teeth don’t suffer any misalignment, change in shape, gaps and are straight, then whitening may be the best option for you! There are two ways you can go about this: one, you can come to our office where we will place a solution over your teeth and shine a light over it to start the whitening process. Just one appointment can brighten your smile by several shades!

Or you can opt for the at-home system where our clinic makes custom-fitted trays for you to wear over your teeth and supply you with professional whitening solution and instructions on how to use it. Essentially, over the course of a few days, you will wear your trays for a few minutes at a time after placing the whitening solution. Unlike the clinic appointment however, this will take a few more days to see results. In order to combat experiencing sensitivity during bleaching, we recommend using a sensitivity toothpaste and fluoride rinse.

Porcelain Veneers

Do you have discolored, crooked or chipped teeth? Veneers would be a perfect fit for you!

Veneers are a custom-made thin shell of porcelain, molded and cemented over your tooth to replicate its natural shape. In order to make room for the veneer, the dentist will slightly shape and trim your natural tooth. Veneers can last for several years with the right care and maintenance.
