Having beautiful, bright white teeth is everyone's dream. However, tooth discoloration can also occur naturally, for example due to the types of food and drinks we often consume, smoking habits and aging factors. Well, this type of tooth discoloration is usually not enough to be solved with just a toothbrush. Maybe your teeth can be a little brighter with toothpaste specifically for whitening teeth, but usually your teeth will return to their color faster. So, to overcome this, what we can do is go to the dentist for teeth whitening treatment. What types of teeth whitening treatments can you get?
Teeth Bleaching or Whitening is a teeth whitening treatment using carbamide peroxides or hydrogen peroxides bleach which is coated on the surface of your teeth. Teeth that have been coated with whitening material will then be irradiated with a laser light so that the whitening agent adheres to your tooth layers properly.
So, what we need to pay attention to is that not all conditions of colored teeth can get teeth whitening treatment. You see, teeth bleaching is done specifically to overcome the problem of colored teeth in healthy teeth. This means that if your teeth are colored but also have other problems such as gum infections, cracked teeth or partial cavities, then your teeth are not recommended for teeth whitening treatment. So what's the solution for dealing with colored teeth that also have complex dental problems? Relax, because there are still other types of treatment, namely dental veneers.
Dental veneers are a dental restoration method that can not only make your teeth look white again, but also make your teeth look more beautiful and neat. The difference is with teeth bleaching which uses whitening material to be coated on the surface of your teeth, dental veneers are made of thin denture shells that are placed on the surface of your teeth so it's not just the color of your teeth, problems with the shape of the teeth or tooth cavities will be resolved. Veneers are made from a variety of materials that can be adapted to your conditions and budget. If you want to have dental veneers that look the most natural and last a long time, you can choose veneers made of porcelain or zirconia. But if you want to suit your budget, you can choose veneers with resin materials first before switching to porcelain or zirconia.
