Erasing the Years
You may have healthy teeth, but years of consuming coffee and tea have probably left behind stains. Brownish, grayish, or yellowed teeth make a person look aged and are simply not as attractive as a vibrant, white smile. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can give you a bold, bright smile and renew your confidence.
For surface stains on tooth enamel, Dr. Sohl can provide you with custom whitening trays for home use. Along with a prescription-strength bleaching gel, home whitening trays erase years of built-up stains from foods, beverages, tobacco, and even the natural aging process. Most patients whiten for about an hour a day, and complete treatment takes approximately two weeks. Retain your whitening trays for future touch ups, and order more bleaching gel through our office.
Deeper stains and internal blemishes that don’t respond to external whitening treatments may be addressed with cosmetic bonding. This one-visit procedure can cover discolorations, fill gaps between teeth, and improve the shape of chipped or malformed teeth. The procedure involves painting on a liquid resin and curing it using a special light that bonds the material to the tooth. Bonding is a quick and cost- effective treatment that can efficiently repair cosmetic dental issues.
Porcelain veneers offer a complete smile makeover with a single procedure. Veneers are custom-crafted porcelain shells, designed to fit on the front surface of front teeth. While veneers are more costly than bonding, they last longer and provide total coverage.
