Although there are multiple ways that teeth can be damaged or discolored, fortunately, there are multiple ways that teeth can be restored and whitened. For additional oral health care beyond basic brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash to control bacteria and plaque, consider the benefits that a tooth restoration may be able to provide for your smile.
If you are looking for a whiter smile, the best choice would likely be a professional tooth whitening treatment designed to remove deep stains and discolorations. However, if your teeth are extensively damaged, alternative restorations may need to be done, specifically ones that require the addition of foreign substances.
If a broken tooth cannot be corrected with a tooth whitener, it may need to be concealed with a dental veneer or dental crown. Dental veneers effectively cover up the fronts of the teeth, whereas dental crowns completely cap problematic teeth on all sides down to the gum line.
If your smile has suffered dental erosion, concealing the tooth will not be enough, as it will eventually fail and lead to tooth loss. Instead, a tooth restoration project such as a dental filling can be done to remove any cavities the tooth may have and prevent further erosion from occurring.
