We know that not every patient who comes to our Manhattan Beach Cosmetic Dentistry office is the same. Treatments for cosmetic dental concerns need to be matched the specific patients and his or her unique needs. Fortunately there are a variety of cosmetic treatments available so that we can decide which is best for your particular case.
One of the most common complaints that we hear from dental patients is that their teeth are starting to look dark, stained, or dull. Dental discoloration can be the result of any number of issues. Environmental stains result from consuming discoloring foods or drinks, such as wine, cola, coffee, and tea. Structural changes in the tooth can also cause teeth to look darker. Over time the surface enamel of your teeth can thin, allowing more of the underlying yellowish dentin to show through.
Patients suffering from dental staining can benefit greatly from professional teeth whitening treatments. These treatments bleach dental enamel, lighten stains and refresh the appearance of teeth. If teeth whitening treatments are not successful for you, you may find that dental veneers are effective. Veneers completely cover the enamel surface, so they can mask even the darkest teeth.
Another common complaint from patients is that their teeth are crooked, misaligned, or uneven. Dental veneers can give you the appearance of a straight, seamless smile in only a few appointments. Veneers are shaped and shaded by a dentist to fit your smile, so they are sure to look natural and enhance your overall appearance.
Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, there are solutions for common dental problems that are easily attainable. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, contact our Manhattan Beach Cosmetic Dentistry office. We will be happy to consult with you so that we can provide treatment options and help you decide which is best for you.
