If you use tobacco products on a regular basis, chances are good that you are constantly dealing with stubborn dental stains on your smile. You likely have also noticed that the retail-grade whitening products sold in stores simply aren’t strong enough to fully remove stains caused by tar and other chemicals associated with tobacco use.
A dental bleaching treatment at our Stones Crossing Dentistry’s Greenwood, Indiana dental practice can restore your while smile. However, if you continue to use tobacco products the same unsightly shade of yellow will gradually return.
Rather than have frequent dental bleaching treatments, you might want to consider having our dentists fit you for dental veneers. These are special shells designed to fit seamlessly over the teeth in your smile. The special dental-grade porcelain material used to create the veneers will not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel.
After a thorough examination, our Stones Crossing Dentistry dentist will take a detailed impression of all the teeth in your smile. This will be sent a dental lab to be used as a guide for creating your custom porcelain dental veneers.
You’ll need to come back when the veneers are ready. Your dentist will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.
If you live in the Greenwood, Indiana area and you are struggling with a tobacco-stained smile, you should call 317.535.3940 to set up a consultation at Stones Crossing Dentistry. Dr. Aaron Wilkins and our team look forward to helping you smile bright!
