Teeth whitening is the process of removing most stains from the surface of the teeth to make them whiter and brighter. Teeth become discoloured over time due to aging, diet and health habits. Smoking, red wine, coffee, tea and certain medications are some items that cause staining of teeth . Modern whitening procedures and techniques, supervised by your dentist, can have a dramatic effect on your smile.
A veneer is a thin layer of plastic or porcelain that is bonded to a tooth, to improve its appearance. Veneers can be placed directly onto the tooth using plastic, or can be made indirectly using porcelain. Porcelain veneers are generally longer lasting, stronger, stain resistant and more esthetic in appearance.
