Just like your natural teeth, your porcelain veneers are strong, but not indestructible. We will go over the proper care and treatment of your dental implants, but a few guidelines include:

  • Don't bite or chew anything you shouldn't - hard candy, ice cubes, etc
  • Never use your teeth as tools
  • Take care of your restorations the same way you care for you teeth
  • If you notice a damaged restoration. let us know right away

If you want a brighter smile, we recommend whitening your teeth before you seek restorative work. Dental restorations do not whiten with teeth whitening systems and you can end up with a mismatched smile. Whitening your teeth first will allow us to match your dental restorations to your whitened teeth.

Sometimes, a simple teeth whitening procedure is all it takes to put the sparkle back into your smile.

If your staining or discolouration is resistant to whitening, however, we have other ways of improving the appearance of your teeth using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, bonding, or porcelain crowns. Call us to find out which of our services is right for you.

Porcelain veneers have been known to last anywhere from several years to a decade. Porcelain veneers are very strong and durable, but how long they last really depends on how well you take care of your teeth and your oral health, in general.  

Proper oral hygiene plays an important role in the longevity of your dental veneers. In general, though, you will get the most out of your veneers if you treat them with the same care as your natural teeth.

Pharmacy whitening kits are not customised to fit your teeth snugly. That means that whitening gel may leak onto your sensitive gum tissue and cause side effects. Many whitening toothpastes are abrasive and also cause sensitivity. 

The strength of the whitening product is much lower than what you can get in a professional kit, meaning that you must use the product for a longer period of time and are still unlikely to get the results you can find in a professional product. Additionally, your results are not being monitored by the dentist you know and trust.

Teeth staining can have several different causes. Some of the most common culprits we see include:

  • Smoking
  • Drinking staining beverages such as coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Eating staining foods like berries and curry
  • Inadequate dental hygiene
  • Certain health conditions
  • Genetics

Contact us for a consultation to determine if we can improve the colour of your teeth.

It shouldn't, but if you have certain conditions, such as gum recession, we may need to alter your treatment.

Most professional whitening products contain a desensitising ingredient that protects sensitive teeth and keeps you comfortable during your treatment. Additionally, the customisable nature of professional whitening treatments prevents the product from coming into contact with soft tissues like your gums, lips, and tongue. 

If your teeth are sensitive, please talk to us so that we can help you determine whether whitening is appropriate for you.
