Tooth Whitening with Porcelain Veneers

in Teeth

Even the most attractive face can quickly become unattractive with teeth that are unsightly and stained. Brilliantly white teeth speak volumes about your personal hygiene, and can make or break both social and business situations. Fortunately, there are many options available for whitening teeth, but with so many options, choosing the right process can be overwhelming.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that can be placed over existing teeth to restore a beautifully white, radiant smile. As an additional benefit, porcelain veneers can also correct a number of cosmetic issues not related to discoloration like:

  • Uneven spacing
  • Gaps
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chips and minor cracks

With these added benefits, it's no wonder why so many people choose porcelain veneers to whiten their teeth.

Using porcelain to whiten teeth has become a popular cosmetic choice for a number of reasons. Porcelain is stain resistant, and does not require any more upkeep than your natural teeth. Porcelain is also identical in color to perfectly white teeth, and reflects light in a similar manner to your natural tooth enamel. Using porcelain veneers, no one will ever know you have had a cosmetic procedure to whiten your teeth.

Less Pain, More Gain

At-home tooth whitening kits can be messy to apply. Worse yet, the solution used in these kits can cause serious gum and tooth sensitivity. When you add to that the fact that many of these at home kits fail to sufficiently whiten teeth, they are seldom worth your time.

In office whitening is fast and causes less sensitivity than at home kits, but the results are very temporary. With both in office and at home kits, you can expect to have to whiten your teeth again every six months. As an alternative, stain resistant, long lasting porcelain can offer you a beautifully white smile for a number of years.
