Ready to do something about your smile? If imperfections such as stains, discoloration, cracks, chips, gaps, or a minor misalignment are keeping you from embracing what beautiful teeth can offer, it’s time to let a cosmetic dentist in Ridgefield recommend the right treatment for you. But what is it? How do you know if you should choose teeth whitening or porcelain veneers to improve your appearance? Read on to learn more about these two solutions and discover which one will help you to see a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

Often considered a popular cosmetic solution for some of Hollywood’s elite, this common treatment is capable of concealing all types of tooth imperfections and is a viable option for anyone in need of a smile transformation.

These thin shell coverings are carefully placed over the front of each tooth, effectively hiding chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, minor gaps and alignments, and misshapen teeth. Customized to match the natural color of your teeth as well as their size and shape, you don’t have to worry about your smile appearing fake or unnatural. Instead, you’ll see a fully transformed smile that not only boosts your aesthetic but also your confidence.

This cosmetic treatment is often recommended for individuals who are looking to conceal more than just stains and discoloration. Because they fully cover the front of your teeth and are a permanent solution, you can say goodbye to many of the flaws plaguing your smile.

Why Choose Teeth Whitening?

If you want to do something about the stains on your teeth caused by years of drinking coffee or smoking, your cosmetic dentist in Ridgefield can offer two safe and effective solutions – in-house Zoom! whitening or take-home kits to allow you to brighten your smile on your own time.

With in-house whitening, you can see dramatic results in about an hour. The high-grade bleaching gel blasts away stubborn and deep-down stains, allowing you to achieve a smile that is several shades lighter in a short amount of time.

If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, you can use NiteWhite or DayWhite kits to see results in about two weeks.

No matter which method you choose, you’re guaranteed to see a new and improved smile that shines brighter, longer. Professional teeth whitening is a superior alternative to those store-bought products you can buy on the shelves at your local drug store. Not only is it safer because it is administered by a licensed cosmetic dentist, but it is also more cost-effective because you won’t be spending additional money on kits that make false promises.

When scheduling an appointment with your dentist to discuss your options, you should also know that it is possible to have porcelain veneers and teeth whitening performed to improve your smile. Once your veneers are put into place, you can opt to whiten the rest of your natural teeth to match.
