A veneer is a covering that goes over the front surface of a tooth. Veneers can be used for a variety of reasons. Veneers can be used across the front teeth to make the teeth more esthetic and can sometimes correct minor crowding, spacing, or misaligned teeth. If a front tooth is discolored due to previous trauma or has had root canal treatment, a veneer can be used to match the other front teeth as well. Additionally veneers can provide whiter teeth for people who’s natural teeth are severely stained and have difficulty achieving the desired color with whitening.
Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)
Whitening can be used for many purposes and also can be done in many different ways. The most common are in-office bleaching, at home trays, or over the counter methods. Talking to the dentist and hygienist can help make the decisions between these three types. If a patient has moderate to severe stain, in-office bleaching may be the best way to go. At home trays are good for moderate staining as well as for touch ups needed after in office bleaching.
