Possible solutions if you have discolored teeth:
- If you’re happy with the shapes and positions of your teeth and just want them whiter, our in office Zoom whitening system is very effective and produces dramatic results.
- Porcelain veneers will also mask discolorations while giving you the flexibility to have the smile design you want. Your teeth can be lengthened, shortened, the shape can be changed, and they can be the shade you want.
- If you have tetracycline stains on your teeth, be aware that tooth whitening procedures will probably not be powerful enough to mask the stains. If you took tetracycline antibiotic while your teeth were forming, it causes deeply embedded stains that become a structural part of your teeth. Masking the stains with expertly done porcelain veneers can give you a beautiful, white smile.
