Teeth Whitening or Dental Veneers?
Patients who experience mild discoloration will likely be steered in the direction of teeth whitening (and perhaps simple orthodontic aligners) rather than veneers. The process involved with the placing of dental veneers permanently alters the tooth’s structure in the shaping and prep work required to place the veneers and will not be advised if your teeth as esthetically average and functional. Patients who suffer from chronic discoloration and/or dullness may be considered candidates for dental veneers. Veneers are proven to remedy the appearance not only in the smile but also in the mouth and facial structure. In addition, the areas of an aging face are better supported by teeth that are part of a properly shaped smile. Dental veneers require a considerably higher level of commitment than whitening, however, they are longer lasting and the results are worth the process for advised candidates.
