Cosmetic Dentistry- the branch of dentistry dealing with the appearance of the teeth. Worn out stained teeth can be bleached, cosmetic tooth crowns placed or veneers put on. Veneers are ultra thin porcelain facing, placed on the teeth with minimal tooth structured removed.
Bleaching is a common technique used to make darker teeth whiter. Bleaching should be done with dental supervision. It is careful to use the proper bleaching material and should be applied to a custom bleaching tray for adequate exposure to your teeth. To properly bleach your teeth it is advised to use it for 2 – 4 weeks till maximum whiting is achieved. Immediate whitening will occur, but without adequate time it will not last.
