Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Indeed, many people feel it is a key element in making a good first impression. If you have one or more unappealing teeth in your smile, or if you suffer with discolored tooth enamel, there are different treatments available. The one recommended by Dr. Behzad Abadi will vary depending on the specific nature of the cosmetic imperfection.
If you’re suffering with stained or otherwise discolored tooth enamel, Dr. Behzad Abadis can help you explore your whitening options. In most situations, the most effective method is to have a dental bleaching treatment administered.
Once your teeth have been safely whitened, he can help you understand your options for maintaining your lustrous, white smile. This might include changes in your food and beverage choices or using a whitening toothpaste that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
If you’re struggling with multiple cosmetic imperfections in your smile, your dentist might recommend dental veneers. These are basically thin, porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. They can effectively disguise chips and mismatched fillings while also giving you a white smile that is easy to maintain.
If you have one or two teeth that have been compromised by current cavities or a past filling, he might recommend a dental crown restoration. This will replicate the tooth enamel layer in a dental-grade porcelain material that will perfectly match the other teeth destined for dental veneers.
