Cosmetic dentistry procedures such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are great ways to improve your smile and get rid of teeth stains and chips, but which one is best for you? Well, the right one for your smile depends on the current state of your teeth, gums and overall dental health. Our cosmetic dentist in Las Vegas can help you determine the right option to enhance the appearance and function of your mouth.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can do more than whiten your teeth. They can correct chips, cracks and misshapen teeth as well as worn, crooked and overcrowded teeth. These thin, porcelain shells are customized for you, and our goal is to give you a stunning, natural-looking smile. The shells fit comfortably over your teeth and look and feel just like your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers require very little upkeep. You can care for them just as you would your other teeth, by brushing twice a day, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash. This cosmetic option is a great way to transform teeth with chips and cracks into a flawless smile.
The Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is likely your best option if you have teeth that are in good shape but have stained due to coffee, tea, wine or nicotine use. Genetics and certain medications may also cause your teeth to yellow or become discolored. There are dozens of over-the-counter products that promise to whiten your teeth, but they often fall short because the whitening agents aren’t strong enough to make a lasting difference. Our cosmetic dentists offer professional in-office teeth whitening and customized take-home kits to continue to improve the color of your teeth over time.
Porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are best for men and women who don’t have any stage of gum disease.
