Cosmetic Dentistry – Whitening & Veneers
Q: Are There Any Side Effects With Teeth Whitening?
A: In most cases there are no side effects if whitening is supervised by dental professionals. Mild to moderate sensitivity is possible. With in-office treatments, we prevent this by using materials to protect gums. We also have postoperative treatments that can alleviate sensitivity.
Q: What Are the Pros and Cons of Dental Veneers?
A: Dental veneers are a very conservative way of creating a gorgeous smile. Unlike tooth material, veneers do not stain. They can be shaped in a more aesthetic form than your existing teeth. They can also be used to correct a moderate amount of crowding, and the results are more immediate than orthodontic treatment. The disadvantages of dental veneers are that they are not appropriate for areas of large decay, they should not be used to repair wear caused by grinding, and, like any tooth, they can be damaged by accidents or abuse.
