Discolored teeth are a common complaint from many people. Whitening the teeth is one of the easiest dental procedures. However, for those stubborn stains, a restorative approach using crowns or veneers may be needed to cover those deep stains. Bleaching is the simplest way to start.
Professional Teeth Bleaching
In office bleaching using the Zoom system along with custom made bleaching trays for follow up is the quickest way to whiten the teeth.
At home professional whitening can be used to whiten teeth by using custom made trays with professional strength whitening gel. Wear the trays with the gel until your shade is accomplished. Abstaining from red wine, coffee, tea, soda, and tobacco use during this time and after will help maintain that white smile.
When bleaching does not get the teeth white enough due to stubborn staining, Dr. Barr can place porcelain veneers or crowns on the teeth to achieve the desired color.
