Teeth Whitening vs. Porcelain Veneers
A bright, vibrant smile can have a significant impact on both your appearance and self-confidence. Our patients at The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry often seek solutions for dull, stained, and discolored teeth that can provide them with a whiter smile. Depending upon each patient’s unique dental challenges and goals, Dr. Robert Rioseco may recommend in-office teeth whitening, an at-home whitening kit, or porcelain veneers.
Teeth whitening treatments can effectively remove stains and discoloration caused by tea, coffee, wine, tobacco products, or simply the natural aging process. ZOOM!® teeth whitening is a procedure performed in our office that can dramatically lighten the shade of the teeth in an hour and a half with immediate results. This technique is the fastest whitening solution we offer, and can be ideal for patients with an important event in the near future.
Our at-home whitening kits use custom-made trays and professional strength whitening gel that can deliver much more effective results than over-the-counter products. This method of whitening allows patients to brighten their teeth more gradually at their convenience.
Porcelain veneers can not only eliminate visible stains or discoloration but also correct a number of other cosmetic dental imperfections. Patients who have chips, cracks, or minor tooth misalignment may benefit most from porcelain veneers for more complete smile rejuvenation. Furthermore, the high-quality porcelain material used to fabricate veneers for Dr. Rioseco’s patients is stain resistant and durable. WIth proper care, veneers can last for decades.
