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.

Bonding

Bonding is a quick and easy way to repair minor faults in a tooth – whether from discoloration, cracking, or chipping.

Veneers

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.

Lumineers

Stronger and thinner than other veneers, Lumineers can fix gapped teeth, teeth that slope inward, and teeth that are too small.

Porcelain Crowns

A dental crown can restore a tooth to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving the appearance, maintaining the shape of your face and a normal bite and jaw movement. Crowns are used to restore a tooth when there isn’t enough of the tooth remaining to provide support for a large filling, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore fractured teeth or cover badly shaped or discolored teeth. Porcelain crowns can match the color of your own teeth, and are natural looking with no metal showing at the gumline.
