The teeth in the front of your mouth play an important function in helping you bite and speak. They also have a significant impact on your overall appearance. If these teeth become stained or discolored, it could make you feel self-conscious. In a situation such as this, you can always turn to our dentist, Dr. Alan Nix to learn about the cosmetic dentistry treatments that can improve your smile’s appearance. The specific nature of your problem will determine the dentist’s recommendations.  

A tooth-whitening treatment can be used to eliminate dental stains. Once this is done, your dentist can talk with you about what you can do to maintain your white smile. In other cases it might be preferable to place dental veneers on your discolored, or misshapen, or slightly chipped. Veneers are thin shells made from dental grade porcelain or composite resin that blend in with your other teeth. If you have teeth that have been altered by physical imperfections like chipped tooth enamel,  dental fractures or a discolored dental filling, your dentist may recommend a dental crown. This treatment will replace the tooth’s enamel layer with dental grade porcelain.
