new yearsAs 2021 comes to a close we have a brand new year to look forward to. While the last year has had many ups and downs, it is important to approach 2022 with optimism and joy. One of the best ways to ensure the new year kicks off the right way is to feel confident in yourself and how you look. Many of us wish we could alter the look of our teeth, and doing so is easier than you might think. In today’s blog, your Newport Beach, CA, dentist discusses the ways we can help you whiten your smile and assist you in feeling confident in the look of your teeth.

Professional Teeth Whitening Offers Real Results

When you visit us for teeth whitening, you can rest assured that you will get results. The procedure only takes an hour and is straightforward and non-intrusive. We apply a strong bleaching gel to your teeth and then activate it with a special light, which begins breaking up stains and discoloration immediately. By the time you leave roughly sixty minutes later, your teeth will be whiter and brighter. Keep in mind that professional teeth whitening typically works on extrinsic stains — or ones on the surface. For deeper ones, you may require other cosmetic procedures.

Porcelain Veneers Can Fix Several Issues At Once

Porcelain veneers can certainly help brighten your smile. They are thin pieces of durable, biocompatible porcelain that fit over your teeth, once your dentist carefully removes a little enamel. They are bonded to your teeth with a strong adhesive agent to ensure they stay comfortably in place. In addition to covering up deep intrinsic stains, they can also help remedy other issues, too. For instance, they can help cover chipped and cracked teeth. They can also mask minor tooth misalignment as well as small gaps. 

The porcelain is designed to closely match the look and feel of your teeth so it is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Because we highly value your comfort and ease, we offer a variety of sedation options to ensure you are relaxed during your visit. Overall, veneers are a relatively simple solution to myriad cosmetic issues. It is important to feel confident in your smile, and this service can certainly help.
