Porcelain Veneers Do you wish your smile was brighter, straighter, or not marred by one or two errant teeth? There is a lot to be said for maintaining a healthy mouth, free of oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease, but there is also plenty ado to be had about having a smile you’re proud to show off. The simple act of smiling often makes you more appealing and attractive, and the good vibrations it generates can significantly improve your quality of life (compared to sulking or frowning most of the time). If you hide your smile because of discontent or embarrassment, you are depriving yourself of enjoying the many benefits your smile could bring you. In his dedication to improving dental health and dental confidence in our patients, Richmond cosmetic dentist Dr. Stefan Moiceanu explains two common techniques he uses to craft his patients’ beautiful smiles.

Tooth Whitening for a Brighter Smile

The most common grievance regarding a smile is the color of teeth. Consequently, one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dental procedures is professional tooth whitening. Stains can adhere to your teeth for no other reason than daily use, but they can remain there, marring your smile, in the midst of poor oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing your teeth helps prevent dental issues, but the routine also scrubs small stains from the surface of your teeth. If you go a day or three without exercising oral hygiene, your neglect may be a cause for tooth discoloration. If your oral hygiene is up to par and you still experience staining, then professional tooth whitening may make your smile glamorous once again.

Porcelain Veneers

Some severe tooth stains may not respond to chemical tooth whitening, especially those that originate within the tooth (intrinsic tooth stains). In these cases, you may need to explore other options, and besides tooth whitening, another commonly performed cosmetic procedure involves the placement of porcelain dental veneers. Made from durable dental porcelain, veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. The porcelain closely mimics the way light reflects off of your natural tooth enamel, providing one of the most discrete and aesthetically pleasing dental procedures available. Because they cover the fronts of your teeth, porcelain veneers can correct stains, chips, and excessive space between your teeth.
