Answers to Your Dental Questions

I have yellow, stained or somewhat discolored teeth

Some options for improving your smile could include:

Tooth Whitening / Bleaching
Staten Island tooth whitening and bleaching at AK Dental Arts for discolored teeth

Stained or discolored teeth can be caused by coffee, red wine, soda, tea, tobacco and some medications. It can be tempting to brush more vigorously if you have stained teeth, but this can remove the enamel from your teeth, causing further discoloration and serious dental problems. Whitening safely lightens the color of the teeth, and can last for up to five years. The most effective and safest method of tooth whitening is dentist-supervised.

Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. They can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth, including repairing small chips or cracks, filling unsightly spaces, making teeth even and uniform, and covering severe dullness or discoloration.
