If you have stained teeth, we can help. Here at the dental office of Dr. James Watts in Mystic, CT, we offer both veneers and teeth whitening treatment to treat this issue and give you a perfect smile—read on to learn more.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is the quickest method for achieving a brighter smile. Professional treatments are applied in the office by experienced dental professionals who have the right skills and equipment to achieve maximum results. After just one treatment, teeth can become up to eight shades whiter. than before One of the reasons that results can be achieved so quickly is that a professional strength bleaching agent is used to whiten the teeth. Over-the-counter products can whiten the teeth a few shades over time, but do not produce the same results as professional treatments.

In addition to producing a significantly whiter smile in as little as one hour, another advantage of professional teeth whitening is that the results are long-lasting. Teeth can potentially retain their whiter shade for up to five years before additional treatments are needed. At our dental office in Mystic, CT, teeth whitening is as easy as relaxing in a comfortable chair while our skilled professionals carefully apply the whitening gel to your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Some stains and discolorations cannot be completely removed through tooth whitening. For example, stains that are gray or brown in color are not easily whitened. Additionally, teeth that are severely discolored or have developed pits are not easy to whiten either. In such cases, porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative for achieving a whiter smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin laminates used to give teeth a flawless appearance by covering cosmetic imperfections, such as stains. The veneers are affixed to the front surface of discolored teeth to conceal stains and other issues. Veneers are custom made to look completely natural and fit perfectly in place. Further, the porcelain material used to create veneers mimics the appearance of tooth enamel. Once they are in place, porcelain veneers look like your regular teeth.
