Cosmetic Dentistry: Part 5

By Steve Wilcott

Veneers.

You may have heard the term "veneer in conjunction with wood working. The process for cosmetic dental applications is much the same. Very thin covers are custom created for each individual tooth. They fit the front side of the tooth and are another option to bonding or shaping. The same basic process is used to attach the veneers to the teeth. Veneers are very popular because they are so thin and somewhat resistant to staining.

There are two different options for veneers.

Porcelain, or "indirect veneers are handcrafted in a laboratory especially to fit your teeth. They are expensive but are said to last from 10 to 15 years.

Composite, or "direct veneers are enamel which is bonded directly to the tooth are significantly less expensive but their "shelf life is only 5 to 7 years.

If you have Almost translucent they can literally breath new life into damaged or discolored teeth.

Bleaching.

This process involves the application of a rubber shield or a gel to your gums before work commences. This is necessary in order to prevent harm to the soft tissue. Bleaching material is then applied, sometimes using a laser light to enhance the procedure. The process may require several visits to the dental office.

Kits for bleaching are available for home use and you might discuss choose to discuss that possibility with your dentist. The actual bleaching agent is carbamide peroxide solution. It usually comes as a gel and placed in a mouthguard. The frequency and length of treatment will vary from person to person depending on the amount and intensity of whitening you desire. This should be discussed with your dentist before proceeding.

Occasionally there is some soft tissue irritation. If you experience any side effects from using the agent, contact the dentist immediately.

Teeth whitening strips.

Teeth whitening strips are simply cool!

These are probably the most convenient advancement in dental care in decades taking the concept of tooth bleaching to an entire new level of speed and convenience.

The whitening strips contain hydrogen peroxide which is embedded in transparent material that fits over the teeth. Almost totally undetectable when worn, the peroxide goes to work as soon as they are activated by the moisture in your mouth. (Another good reason to avoid dry mouth!)

There are several brand names on the market and all work pretty much the same. They are applied over the teeth and worn for 30 minutes twice a day for 21 days, or you may select the type that can be worn overnight whitening the teeth while you are sleeping.

How long the effects last will vary depending on diet and lifestyle. Your teeth will stain again, but you can lengthen the time between incidences by avoiding tobacco, tea, red wine, colored juices, curry, soy and soft drinks. If you are on well water, you might want to have the water tested. High concentrations of minerals in your water will cause staining of your teeth. Or, you may just opt for bottled water. The results from the teeth whitening strips are absolutely incredible and you would do well to give them a try.
