Use Veneers to get Whiter Teeth

When people decide to look into cosmetic dentistry in order to pursue getting the beautiful smile of their dreams, teeth whitening is the treatment chosen by more individuals than any other cosmetic dental procedure. If you want to brighten the shade of your teeth, your best option is to have a professional whitening procedure in Miami performed by an expertly trained cosmetic dentist like Dr. Raul Garcia and Dr. Conchi Sanchez-Garcia at Miami Designer Smiles. However, whitening procedures are not the only way to get a bright, dazzling smile. A cosmetic dentist also can use veneers to give you the whiter teeth you desire.

Your tooth enamel limits what a whitening treatment can do. Veneers are not limited

You probably have seen a host of different products available for purchase over the counter promising gleaming white teeth worthy of the Hollywood red carpet, and advertisements promoting these products. Here’s what all those ads don’t tell you; any whitening procedure—even a professional treatment administered by a licensed and trained cosmetic dentist—is limited in scope by the shade of your natural tooth enamel. If your natural enamel is not as bright as you would like your smile to look, no whitening treatment ever will be enough to achieve your goals. 

Veneers, however, can be installed to cover the entire visible surface of all the teeth in your mouth. These veneers also can be tailored to your own aesthetic goals. For example, they can be matched to the precise shade of your other healthy teeth, but if all the visible tooth surface is being covered by veneers, then your veneers can be as bright and brilliant as you want.

Whitening teeth is just one of the results from receiving veneers

Veneers can resolve several different aesthetic flaws with your teeth at the same a time. A veneer can be placed over a single tooth or, as mentioned, all the teeth in your mouth. In addition to brightening teeth, veneers also can be used to improve appearance issues such as teeth that are too short, crooked, crowded, or have unnatural wear. Veneers can conceal chips, cracks, and small fractures—or hide an unwanted gap between two teeth.

Veneers made of dental porcelain produce whiter teeth that last 

No cosmetic treatment is permanent—although a professional dental whitening procedure will last longer than any store-bought counterpart, and without causing the enhanced sensitivity in teeth that are common when using many over-the-counter whitening products. However, at Miami Designer Smiles, we use veneers made with dental porcelain, a beautiful material that reflects light in a similar fashion to tooth enamel but also is stain-resistant. Even with veneers installed, you have to do your part by maintaining a diligent regimen of oral hygiene and limiting your consumption of coffee, red wine, and dark-colored fruits that can cause extrinsic stains to develop.
