There’s a wide range of things that can cause stains on the surfaces of your teeth. Frequently consuming dark beverages and the occasional tobacco use are two of the more common culprits. However, the natural aging process alone can also dull your tooth enamel.
The depth and severity of the dental stains will directly influence the cosmetic dental method recommended by Dr. Jay P. Boyle.
Significant dental stains can rarely be improved by retail-grade whitening products. To fully restore your naturally white tooth enamel, you will need Dr. Jay P. Boyle to administer a dental bleaching treatment. The professional tools, techniques and potent whitening agents he employs are the safest method for removing stains from the teeth.
If you also have physical imperfections, like chips or mismatched fillings, Dr. Jay P. Boyle might recommend dental veneers. These are custom-shaped porcelain shells that are cemented onto each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material is not as porous as natural tooth enamel, which makes it easy to maintain your scintillatingly white smile for many years to come.
If one or two of your teeth suffer from tooth decay, old fillings or significant discoloration, Dr. Jay P. Boyle might recommend replacing the entire tooth enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown.
