But sometimes the passage of time, habits or the consumption of foods or substances that spoil the teeth can make them look dark and unkempt. To improve the appearance of your smile there are several dental aesthetic treatments, today we focus on dental veneers and teeth whitening.
Dental veneers and teeth whitening, two treatments to improve the esthetics of your teeth
Teeth whitening and dental veneers are two popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Both options seek to improve the appearance of the teeth, and are therefore focused on correcting certain aesthetic problems and improving patients’ self-esteem and confidence.
At Clínica Noguerol we work with top quality products and the best equipment to offer you an extraordinary result in all our treatments, including dental veneers and teeth whitening.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are porcelain or composite resin shells that are placed on the surface of the teeth to correct esthetic problems such as stains, fractures, wear or spaces between teeth.
In which cases are dental veneers better than whitening?
Dental veneers may be a more suitable option than tooth whitening to correct certain structural or alignment problems. In addition to improving the color of the teeth, they can also change their shape and size moderately.
The process of placing dental veneers usually requires two or three visits to the dentist. In the first visit, the surface of the teeth is prepared and measurements are taken to fabricate the veneers. In some cases, composite veneers are made directly on the patient’s teeth, shaping them according to the needs of each case.
What is teeth whitening?
Tooth whitening is a treatment that is based on lightening the color of the teeth through the use of chemical agents, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
These products are applied to the teeth and are activated by a light source, usually an LED lamp.
This cosmetic dental treatment can be performed in the dental office or at home with a tooth whitening kit provided by the dentist. In any case, it must be done under the supervision of the indicated professional.
It should be noted that teeth whitening is only effective in lightening superficial stains found on tooth enamel. This treatment cannot change the natural color of the teeth, nor can it correct structural or alignment problems.
When to have teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is the most indicated cosmetic dental treatment in those cases in which the aesthetic appearance of the teeth is to be improved by correcting superficial stains on the dental enamel.
It is recommended to consult with a dentist before performing teeth whitening to evaluate if this treatment is appropriate and safe for each particular case.
Both teeth whitening and dental veneers can be effective in improving the appearance of teeth. However, it is important to consult a dentist before deciding which treatment is most appropriate for each case.
