If you have teeth that are discolored or stained, you may be wondering what the best cosmetic dentistry option is for you. At Eastside Family Dentistry, we have cosmetic solutions that will help you fix your teeth without breaking the bank or spending too much time in the dentist’s chair.
Dr. Alexandra Cristescu of Eastside Family Dentistry is one of the most experienced cosmetic dentists in Issaquah, and we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. Wondering what your options are if your teeth are stained or discolored? Here are a few choices to consider:
1. Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is often the best solution for people who have tooth stains because of tobacco use, coffee, tea, or wine consumption, or other such external tooth stains. Teeth whitening uses powerful peroxide-based compounds to destroy and remove these tooth stains from the enamel, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile!
We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening, so the choice is yours! Affordable and painless, this is an ideal way to restore your smile.
2. Tooth-Colored Fillings
Fillings can often discolor the internal structure of your tooth if they are made of mercury-amalgam. The filling is often visible from the outside of the tooth, which can make the tooth look gray and unappealing.
In some cases, we may be able to remove your existing mercury-amalgam filling and replace it with a tooth-colored filling. This eliminates the stain, and ensures your smile looks bright and beautiful.
3. Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns are an ideal way to cover up damaged or seriously stained teeth. Some stains, such as stains caused by tooth infections, or a bad reaction to antibiotics like doxycycline or tetracycline, cannot be treated by teeth whitening.
In this case, a porcelain crown can be used to “cap” and cover the tooth. This is also an ideal solution if a tooth is misshapen, or if it has been damaged by tooth decay or an impact injury.
4. Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover up seriously stained teeth, and treat cases that are not treatable by teeth whitening alone. Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that fit over your existing teeth, essentially replacing them to cover up stains, gaps, and other common cosmetic issues.
Veneers are usually the best way to get a full smile makeover, so they’re often recommended for patients who have multiple cosmetic issues with their smile.
