How Dental Veneers Can Help With Yellowing Teeth

By Dr. Pinnix on June 20, 2014

 

Over time our teeth do get yellow and many of us do not know why this is happening. However one thing that we know is, we want to get rid of that yellow color and get the white back. A South Charlotte cosmetic dentist fortunately can help with that as they are the best dentists for veneers. The process that they use is dental veneers.

The first thing we need to do is to explore why our teeth get yellow. Below the enamel is a dark color dentin. As the enamel wears thinner over time, this darker dentin is more exposed giving you that off white color. We have all heard that once the enamel is gone it is gone. You cant get it back. There are no other procedures to hide the darker dentin which has not come through. The other problem is the foods that we eat can contribute to this. The foods that we eat can also stain the enamel, making it a yellow color. For this process the enamel does not even have to wear thin, as the foods stain the actual enamel.

South Charlotte cosmetic dentist can give you a whiter smile that you have always wanted. They are the best dentists for veneers which can make your teeth white again. This procedure of veneers can make your teeth white again, even if you have stains on your enamel that cannot be removed. The dental veneers can also work if your enamel is gone and the darker dentin has started to show through. Whichever your situation is veneers can give you a whiter smile.

The process of getting veneers is a simple one and is offered by the South Charlotte cosmetic dentist. The veneer is a thin tooth like material that is placed on the outside of your front teeth and works as a shell. These dental veneers will also protect your teeth from further stains. A mold is done, which serves as a foundation for the veneers. The veneers are then made and placed on your teeth. It is a very simple procedure and there is no pain involved.

Getting veneers is a long term solution and a great investment if your teeth are corroded or stained. A whiter smile can give you the confidence that you did not have before with your current teeth. Veneers provide a long term solution and can give you a whiter smile for years to come.
